While most New York City students are headed back to school today, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced that 65 schools in the area will still not be open.
Classes are back in session for the majority of New York City, but eight city schools are acting as shelters and 57 others are still shuttered due to damages caused by the storm. Furthermore, five Catholic elementary schools in Queens will also remain closed until further notice, according to the Diocese of Brooklyn.
Students in the schools that are still out of commission will start classes Wednesday at alternate locations. The NYC Department of Education has information on all schools that are currently closed.
Bloomberg added that some schools may be colder than usual due to their closure, and he reminds parents to dress their children warmly.
Due to Election Day, schools will again be closed on Tuesday.
