During unexpected or emergency situations, cancellation is inevitable. The following are guidelines in response to these events:
What is a cancellation?
In case of a cancellation, teachers must inform the Teacher Support at least 1 day prior to their schedule. This applies to missed schedules and tardiness as well. Teachers must always inform the Teacher Support through SKPYE or Teacher Support Request in the Teacher’s Dashboard.
NOTE: SKYPE is always the best method for immediate reports, troubleshooting reports, and inquiries.

A.2 With valid reason – No Penalty – General ISP, Power outages, Minor sickness and etc.(Required to submit the valid documents)
