NYC schools are open for students from Tuesday.
The New York City Department of Education has reopened about a dozen charter schools that were closed because of Hurricane Sandy.
The school closures were announced Tuesday afternoon by Education Commissioner Gilda Davis, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene announced Tuesday morning.
In addition, the NYC Department of Financial Services said it will reopen four charter schools, including one in the Bronx, and reopen the schools for new students.
The first of the closures is the Harlem School for the Arts, located at 38 Park Avenue.
The school was slated to reopen in March, but has been suspended due to funding issues.
The New Haven School for Girls was also closed Tuesday because of the storm.
The closure was lifted after the school received $20 million in state funding.
The second school closure is the Bronx School of Music and Drama at 55 Park Avenue, located in Brooklyn.
The Bronx School is expected to reopen on Tuesday.
A third closure is located at the Queens School of the Arts at 567 Avenue Q. The Queens School reopened on Monday.
All four schools will reopen Tuesday after the Department has reviewed the schools’ financial status.
The final closure is at the Columbia School of Art and Design, located on the Upper East Side, in Harlem.
It was scheduled to reopen Tuesday.
It’s unclear how many students will be affected by the new openings, but Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city will be providing support for the affected students.
“We’re providing assistance to all New York city public schools, schools that are affected by Hurricane Sandy,” de Blasio told reporters at a press conference.
De Blasio also said schools should resume classes by mid-November.
