Guidelines on Cancellation of Work and Classes Due to Inclement Weather

Miriam College follows the guidelines on the cancellation of classes due to inclement weather issued by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED M.O. 15, series of 2012) for the Higher Education Unit (undergraduate and graduate programs).

Automatic Cancellation of Classes

The automatic suspension of work and classes due to inclement weather is based on the public storm warning signals from the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

Public storm signal No. 3 and higher means cancellation of classes at all levels including the Higher Education Unit. Offices will also be closed as work in offices are also automatically cancelled.

Localized Cancellation of Work and Classes

(DepEd Order No. 43 s. 2012)

As stated in the most recent guidelines issued by the DepEd, “in the absence of typhoon signal warnings from PAGASA, localized cancellation/suspension of classes in both public and private schools… may be implemented by the local chief executives in their capacity as chairpersons of the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.”

“Any decision to cancel or suspend classes must come from the local government. A school head may only cancel or suspend classes in cases where urgent action is needed to prevent loss of life or bodily harm.”

You are advised to monitor media advisories coming from government agencies such as the PAGASA, Local Government Unit/Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) Council, Regional or National DRRM Councils, and the Office of the President (Malacañang).

Students who are not able to report for school will be required to present an excuse letter upon return to class. This will alert the teachers regarding the reason for their absence. Be assured that the school will be very considerate to students who are absent on these days. No tests, examinations, graded recitations or oral reports, etc. will be held in these cases.

As a general guideline, it should be presumed that the absence of any announcement on cancellation of classes/work by government agencies or by the school means there will be classes

Schedule of Mid-day Suspension of Classes

During mid-day suspension of classes, college students are allowed to leave the campus as soon as the suspension of classes is announced. Cancellation of classes will apply for the entire day, even when the storm signal warning is lifted.

Out-of-classroom activities

In the event of class and work cancellation due to inclement weather or an emergency, all unit activities scheduled on the same day shall be automatically cancelled.

Announcements will be made through the following channels:

  • School trunk line: 8 930-MCQC (6272)
  • MC Facebook and Twitter accounts
  • Text messaging (only for emergency cases and independent cancellation of classes/work by Miriam College)
