Himamaylan schools open following clash

BACOLOD CITY — The local government of Himamaylan City in Negros Occidental disclosed that classes in two villages in the city will resume anew on 19 October after it was suspended due to a series of armed encounters between government troops and communist rebels since 6 October.

Himamaylan City Mayor Rogelio Raymund Tongson Jr. declared the resumption of classes through an executive order issued on Sunday night after some of the displaced residents were allowed to return to their respective homes.

“On consultation with Department of Education Schools Division Superintendent Gladys Amylaine Sales, the former recommended the resumption of classes in Barangays Cabadiangan and Carabalan,” Tongson said.

However, students residing in Sitios Campayas, Medel and Sig-ang of Carabalan — who are still staying in various evacuation centers -— will be provided with learning modules.
