Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

The party's over for students of 53 more HISD schools.

Thursday they'll be headed back to class. Check here for a list of who's opening when.

"We have 53 schools on the list for Thursday which I believe brings us up to 200 with 93 to go," HISD spokesman Norm Uhl says. "We anticipate the rest of our schools will open on Monday. If some schools still don't have power by Thursday we have secured several large generators and should be able to run those schools on generators for the time being."

The school board will decide next month how to make up the lost instructional days, whether it's adding days, extending existing school days or some combination of both.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
