Easing the 6-foot distancing rule could bring more NYC students back to campuses this year
About 70% of New York City students are learning from home full-time. Parents may get another chance this school year to opt their children into in-person schooling, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday. De Blasio did not reveal dates for a possible opt-in period, but said that any relaxation of physical distancing guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would “absolutely be the reason” for a change since it would allow more students in classrooms.
The agency is considering reducing distancing between children from 6 feet to 3 feet. “We’re preparing for the possibility of a new opt-in for this current school year, but we need more information,” de Blasio told reporters. “We need to be really clear that we can do it in a healthy and safe way, but we have to start the preparation now.”
