The Haifa Municipality announced on Saturday evening that schools throughout the city would hold class as usual on Sunday.

However the municipality said that pupils from two schools in the Romema neighborhood, which was hit by the fire would be transferred to other schools in the city.

The Romema School would be transferred to Yavniel School in Kiryat Eliezer until Tuesday and kindergarteners from Romema Flower Kindergarten would be transferred on Sunday to Gan Yarden.  These schools would provide increased psychological staff and support, the municipality noted.

The University of Haifa announced on Saturday night that classes would resume as scheduled on its campus, which was evacuated Thursday due to the threat of the fires.

All exams would also proceed as scheduled, with the exception of exams in the international program.

The university added that all students residing in the campus dorms in the Carmel neighborhood were able to return to their rooms Saturday night.  However students residing in the Romema dormitories would be unable to return to their rooms due to safety concerns.

The university said that any student who was unable to find a place to sleep on Saturday night could call a 24 hour hotline for assistance.
