School is in session for those in Houston

9:24 A.M. - HOUSTON (AP) -- Classes begin in Houston today for some of the school kids evacuated from New Orleans last week. One parents says she hopes the new challenges of school will get their minds off the trauma they've been through. One youngster says he's just hoping for a teacher who's nice.
Public school spokesman Terry Abbott says Houston is gearing up to absorb thousands of children.
The president of the Orleans Parish School Board says it's possible some New Orleans schools that sustained relatively minor damage will be able to reopen in January. But he says others will be closed for at least a year.
