Department of Education Legazpi City Schools Division Superintendent Cesar H. Medina confirmed that classes have been suspended in least 10 public elementary and high schools due to the power service interruption.

The move was supported by Governor Joey Salceda, who also made a directive to suspend classes in several other schools.

Salceda said that the unbearable heat may cause students to get sick, especially because many classrooms do not have proper ventilation.

Among the schools in which classes were suspended are Banquerohan Elementary School, Banquerohan High School, Bariis Elementary School, Buenavista Elementary School, Cagbacong Elementary School, Cagbacong High School, Homapon Elementary School, Homapon High School, Mariawa Elementary School, and San Francisco Elementary School.

Also included in the list are the elementary schools in Arimbay, Bagong Abre, Bitano, Bogtong, Buragwis, Dap-dap, Dita, San Joaquin, Lamba, Padang, and Puro.

Around 11,400 students from the preschool, elementary and high school levels are estimated to be affected by the brownout.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
