DepEd announcement of suspension of classes after Barangay Elections

Statement of Education Secretary Luistro on the Suspension of Classes in public elementary and high schools after the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.

[October 25, 2010]

In consideration of the efforts our teachers exerted during the conduct of the 2010 barangay and sangguniang kabataan election particularly their having to wait for the election materials practically over night, DepEd declares that classes in all public elementary and high schools nationwide are suspended tomorrow Tuesday, October 26, 2010.

For schools where elections are postponed to October 26, 2010, classes are suspended tomorrow and the following, day October 27, 2010.

This suspension is made to give our courageous, dedicated, and persevering teachers time to rest after a long poll duty.

For any clarifications that may be needed, please call  636-1663.
