Pasay mayor explains class suspension procedure to students

Pasay City Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano took time to explain how she arrives at the decision to suspend classes amid the bashing that local politicians received last week for the timing of their announcements.

During a chat with students in Kalayaan Village, Calixto-Rubiano said she can’t suspend classes on the first instance of rain.

“Nanay din ako at ngayon nanay pa ng buong Pasay. Nauunawaan ko ang mga magulang na ayaw magkasakit ang mga anak, ganun din naman ako. Pero sana maintindihan natin na hindi porke may konting ulan ay magsuspende tayo. Dahil babayaran nyo rin mga kulang na araw kapag may make up class ng Sabado maski Linggo,” she said.

Calixto-Rubiano said she barely sleeps when there are rains as she has to monitor the advisories from the state weather bureau PAGASA so she can make an informed decision.

“Alam ko na hindi kayo water proof at dapat din na malaman nyo na hindi ako tanghali nagigising, hindi nga ako natutulog sa kakahantay sa Rainfall warning ng PAGASA,” she said.

The mayor said she doesn’t take students’ safety for granted but they need to understand that it takes time for information from PAGASA to reach local officials, so the decision making process on class suspension may sometimes be delayed.
