NYC schools close: Remote learning to resume on November 19

An update for families.

As of Wednesday, Nov 18, the city's infection rate seven day average reached 3 percent, the threshold needed to temporarily close NYC schools

After delaying his press release several hours, Mayor Bill de Blasio confirmed via Twitter that the NYC DOE will be switching to remote learning for all students beginning tomorrow, Nov 19. 

Earlier today, Chancellor Richard Carranza emailed principals of NYC schools outlining the temporary switch to remote learning. He has also sent out a tweet addressing the news. It is not clear at this time when students will be able to return to in-person learning. This has unfolded around the deadline needed to switch from remote learning to hybrid learning (Nov 15).
