New York City Reopening Public Schools in Phases Beginning December 7, 2020

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Sunday that New York City Public Schools will begin a phased reopening.

  • The return dates below apply to students in blended learning, including those who selected blended learning during the recent opt-in period.

  • If you have recently traveled outside of New York City to a place on the State’s travel advisory list, you will have to follow the recommendations for quarantine before resuming in person learning.

3K Through Grade 5

Students in these grades will return to in-person learning beginning on Monday, December 7.

  • This includes all students in grades 3K through 5, across early education and elementary school types (e.g., in K-2 schools, K-3 schools, K-5 schools, as well as District Pre-K Centers, K-8 schools, and K-12 schools).

  • This excludes schools located in State-designated Orange Zones. See the list of schools in the Orange Zone.

District 75 Schools

Students in all grade levels in District 75 schools can return to in-person learning beginning on Thursday, December 10.

Grades 6 to 12

Students in grades 6 through 12 (outside of District 75 schools) will continue to learn remotely until further notice.

Mandatory In-School COVID-19 Testing

In order for a student to return to in-person learning, parents must submit the consent form for in-school COVID-19 testing. Mandatory in-school testing will happen weekly for a random selection of staff and students in all reopened school buildings.
