You may also want to read the DepEd guidelines regarding the suspension of classes.
The Department of Education set the rules on the suspension of classes to keep parents aware and students danger-free in cases of typhoons and other calamities.

Classes in pre-school level in all public and private schools will be automatically suspended with storm number 1.

Classes in pre-school, elementary and high school in all public and private schools will be automatically suspended with storm signal number 2.

Classes in all levels are automatically suspended with storm signal number 3.

All travel and outdoor activities are cancelled with storm signal number 4.

In the absence of typhoon signal warnings from PAGASA, localized suspension or cancellation of classes in both public and private elementary and secondary schools may be implemented by the school principal.

Likewise, the schools division superintendent shall decide on the suspension of classes if such covers the entire division.

Parents wishing to ascertain whether or not to send their children to school should check for media advisories coming from PAGASA, DepED, Calamity, Disaster and Fire Control (CDFC) groups, Local Disaster Coordinating Council (LDCC) and the Local Governments Units (LGUs).

In the absence of official storm warnings, parents have the ultimate responsibility for determining whether their children should go to school.

The required number of school days for the school year shall be considered especially in holding make-up classes to offset the days when classes are suspended.

Make-up classes shall be held on Saturdays or on weekdays beyond the originally-set school calendar in both public and private schools.
Commission on Higher Education (CHED) said that college classes will be automatically suspended when an area is at storm signal no. 3. Meanwhile, they added that school officials can decide about class suspension.
