Under Department of Education rules, the decision to suspend classes in areas where no Public Storm Warning Signal is raised is up to the local government units.
Under the same guidelines, preschool classes are suspended when an area is put under Signal No. 1.
Classes in the preschool to secondary levels are automatically suspended once Signal No. 2 is raised over an area.
When an area is under Signal no. 3, classes from preschool to college and graduate school are automatically canceled. Work in government offices is also suspended.
Typhoon Luis made landfall in the Cagayan-Isabela area on Sunday afternoon.
