New York City’s public schools will welcome back middle schoolers for in-person learning tomorrow.

Public schools that serve grades six through eight will hold in-person classes beginning Thursday. The schools have been closed since November when COVID-19 cases spiked.

“I am very excited that tomorrow our New York City public schools, our middle schools, will be reopening…,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said today. “This is a really important moment — bringing back our middle school kids, getting them in the classroom, giving them the opportunity to learn from talented, committed, passionate educators.”
