MANILA, Philippines — Education Secretary Br Armin Luistro has suspended elementary and high school classes scheduled for Monday, October 14, in Metro Manila, except in four cities, due to the expected traffic disruption from the scheduled Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) medical mission in Manila.

1. Manila (including college level)
2. Quezon City

However classes will go on in the following cities:

Luistro came to the decision after discussing the expected traffic scenario in the National Capital Region (NCR) on Monday (Oct. 14) with Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Francis Tolentino.
