Up to 90,000 NYC Students in School this Week for In-Person Education

Up to 90,000 NYC Students in School this Week for In-Person Education with Hundreds of Thousands in the Weeks to Come says Mayor de Blasio

Mayor de Blasio today spoke of the return to school for thousands of kids.

During his press briefing this morning the Mayor mentioned the opening of 734 schools this week for 3K, pre-K and special-ed classes in District 75. In addition to that are the 1,050 community-based early childhood education programs.

He stated that hundreds of thousands more students would return next week.

“I want to thank all of the team at the Mosaic Center. I want to thank all the team at the DOE, everyone at the Tweed building, all the educators and staff out in the schools, said the Mayor. “Everyone’s working hard. But I also want to thank all the other agencies that are helping, the Department of Health, and Health + Hospitals, Test and Trace, Buildings Department, Fire Department, you name it, School Construction Authority. Many others are chipping in to help because everyone believes this is one of the most important things we can do for our children, our families, and our city.”

As of time of this writing, the following is what appears on the NYC Department of Education site:
