PHILADELPHIA -

The School District of Philadelphia says all schools and offices will be closed Monday due to severe weather from Hurricane Sandy.

According to the district's website, the closure includes early childhood and after school programs.

The district says it will provide updated information on its information hotline: 215-400-INFO.

The closure comes as SEPTA plans to suspend service at the end of its Sunday schedule and as NJ Transit will begin to suspend its service.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has also changed its Monday schedule. The Archdiocese tells Fox 29 classes for all schools within the city limits are canceled Monday.

Philadelphia area universities have also adjusted schedules due to the storm.

Temple University has closed its campuses Monday and Tuesday, as did the University of Pennsylvania.
