It's back to school for New York City school students, or most of them, anyway.
 
Mayor Bloomberg says classes will be in session on Monday after the storm forced the cancellation of classes last week.
 
He says there are 65 schools that won't be open. Eight of those schools are being used as shelters, while 57 others have sustained serious damage. Students in the damaged schools will re-start classes on Wednesday at other locations.
 
The mayor says most schools have had power restored. Any that haven't by Monday won't re-open.
 
Bloomberg says some of the schools may be chilly after not being open for a week and reminds parents to make sure their children are dressed warmly.
 
The Diocese of Brooklyn announced five Catholic elementary schools in Queens will remain closed until further notice. 
 
Schools are closed again Tuesday for Election Day.
