SCHOOLS will remain closed today following the passage of Hurricane Sandy, the Ministry of Education said last night.

The ministry's director of communications Sheryl Bromfield told the Jamaica Observer that schools, which were closed yesterday, will remain closed while they are inspected for damage.

Bromfield also noted that many schools are being used as emergency shelters for persons affected by the hurricane.
