Bumawi! Bistek calls off classes early due to bad weather


After being criticized for his “inaction” less than a month ago, Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista lost no time announcing the suspension of classes due to bad weather on Tuesday.

Bautista made the announcement in radio interviews shortly after 4 a.m., where he said the suspension covered classes in all levels, in both public and private schools.

The Manila city government also called off classes early, announcing before 5 a.m. that classes in all levels were suspended for the day.

Last July 27, Bautista was flooded with criticism after the city government decided not to suspend classes for the day despite heavy rain. At the time, he was in Japan.

Meanwhile, other local governments that suspended classes early for Tuesday included:
– Navotas City
– Valenzuela City
– Paranaque City
– San Mateo, Rodriguez, Montalban, Taytay in Rizal
– Malabon City
– Marikina City
– Caloocan City
– Pasay City
– Las Pinas City
– Mandaluyong City
