    The School District of Philadelphia says school and administrative offices will be open on normal schedule. But the district says some school buses may be delayed in the morning as they “deal with road conditions.”

    The Archdiocese of Philadelphia says high schools and parish elementary schools will also reopen Wednesday, but decisions about reopening Catholic schools in the suburban counties are being made on the local level.

    Both public and Catholic schools as well as city offices and courts were closed Monday and Tuesday due to the storm which roared through the area Monday into Tuesday.

    SEPTA resumed bus and subway service at noon Tuesday but Regional Rail remained out of service due to issues with the rail lines. PATCO set to begin running trains between New Jersey and Philadelphia t 6 p.m. Tuesday.
