    I just want to ask if this is a total suspension because apparently, CHED has a separate memorandum stating that classes are suspended only from 12 n.n. to 6pm. Our school followed CHED’s memo. Does this mean that the declaration of the mayor could be overruled by CHED?

      pwede rin since CHED is in charge of the education sector and not really the mayor. let’s just hope that there will be more info regarding this.
