Back to normal today: Schools, courts, trash

Philadelphia is getting back to fully functioning.

The city has been in shutdown mode since late last week, but papal-visit-related closures are ending.

Today, Philadelphia School District and Archdiocese students head back to class. City courts will reopen. Trash pickup resumes.

SEPTA, which ran Regional Rail trains on a Saturday schedule Monday, is back to normal weekday operations.

Major highways that had been closed for Pope Francis' trip to Philadelphia reopened Monday, as did the "traffic box" in Center City and University City. A handful of streets near the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, where the Festival of Families and papal Mass took place, remain closed for cleanup efforts.
