New York City public schools will remain closed on Wednesday as the city works to recover from the impact of Hurricane Sandy, Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott announced.
"In response to damage, transportation closures, and the number of schools serving as shelters due to Hurricane Sandy, all New York City public schools will be closed to students tomorrow, October 31," Walcott said in a statement. "All after-school activities and Public Schools Athletic League events will also be cancelled. Administrative offices will be open. Thank you to those who are reporting to shelter sites and to those who are volunteering to assist during this time."
While subways will still be shut down, MTA buses were back online as of 5 p.m. Tuesday evening on a weekend schedule, offering riders free trips.
