NYC School Re-opening

The first school buildings will reopen on Dec. 7, de Blasio said Sunday. City officials plan to reopen public school buildings in a phased approach, starting with 3-K, Pre-K, and K-5 students. District 75 students of all grade levels will get the opportunity to return to the classroom a few days later, on Dec. 10. The city is reopening schools in phases, in part, to make sure enhanced testing resources will be available for returning students. The mayor did not offer a timeline of reopening school buildings for middle and high school students, saying the city was not ready yet to open every school. See more...
