Eighty schools remain closed on Monday

The Department of Education posted a list of 80 schools that will remain closed to students on Monday because they were damaged by the storm or are being used to house people made homeless by Hurricane Sandy.  The list also includes 15 District 75 programs for disabled children, two alternative schools and four charter schools.

Electricity has been restored to nearly all school buidlings. The buildings still sheltering storm victims are: Brooklyn Technical High School, John Jay Educational Campus and FDR High School in Brooklyn; Graphic Communication Arts and George Washington Educational Campus in Manhattan; Hillcrest High School in Queens; and Tottenville and Susan E. Wagner high schools in Staten Island.

Students at schools that suffered significant storm damage will be transported to other schools beginning Wednesday. Busing plans are still in flux.
