Classes suspended in Iloilo City on Monday, Jan. 28

Mayor Jose Espinosa III has ordered the suspension of classes for Monday next week, Jan. 28, 2019.

The class suspension, under Executive Order (EO) No. 10, covers all levels in both public and private schools.

“There is a need to suspend classes on Jan.28, 2019, so as to afford the students and teachers to have some time to regain their energy, and for the removal of stages, platforms, and other structures,” the EO states.

The highlights of the 51st Dinagyang Festival are set from Jan. 25 to 28. “This will be participated mostly by students and teachers from various schools in the city.”

Espinosa said the decision to suspend Monday classes was made after consultations with the Department of Education (DepEd) and Commission on Higher Education (CHED).IMT
