Four campuses in the Houston Independent School District will reopen today, including one that flooded during Hurricane Harvey.

Robinson Elementary School in northeast Houston had four feet of water after the storm. HISD says the building has undergone a major renovation, removing all porous surfaces below four feet and replacing items such as cabinets, wood surfaces, vinyl floor tiles and furniture.

The district says Robinson Elementary has been professionally sanitized and inspected as well.

Schools in HISD are not the only ones heading back to school Monday now that winter break is over. Alvin ISD and Fort Bend ISD will also resume classes.
