NYC’s fully remote elementary students can opt back into school buildings, de Blasio says

The city will survey remote middle and high school students but won’t yet give them a chance to return. New York City’s pre-K and elementary school students who are learning at home full-time will get another chance this school year to sign up for in-person instruction, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Friday.

The window for opting into school buildings will open next week and applies to children in pre-K through grade five. Students will be allowed to return over the course of April, de Blasio and schools Chancellor Meisha Porter told reporters.

While the city has “more questions” to resolve before inviting back middle and high school, de Blasio is asking those students during next week’s opt-in window to indicate their interest in returning to buildings to help schools understand how many children are clamoring to be in-person.
