The Office of the Chancellor of the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman released on Tuesday its guidelines in suspending classes in an event of a tropical storm or typhoon.

In a memorandum by Chancellor Fidel Nemenzo, UP Diliman shows three scenarios on online class suspensions.

Under storm signal number one, online synchronous classes are suspended, as there will be internet connectivity issues as a result of the storm.

Should signal number two is declared, online synchronous classes are also suspended not just because of internet connectivity but also because of a possible power and telecommunication service interruption.

“Online synchronous classes are also suspended during Storm Signal number 2 due to internet connectivity issues, and possible power and telecommunication service interruption,” UP Diliman explained. “The faculty is requested to be lenient to students especially from affected areas and exercise flexibility in submitting requirements by postponing submission deadlines.”

Synchronous and asynchronous online classes will all be suspended altogether should signal number three is declared. Faculty members are requested to refrain from asking their students from submitting their requirements due to internet connectivity, power and telecommunication issues.

Full details of the guidelines can be found in the UP Diliman website.
