Governor Authorizes School Districts Reopening

Governor Andrew Cuomo gave the green light for all school districts across the state to reopen, at least in theory, even as he has been “deluged with calls from parents and teachers,” who are anxious about classrooms reopening.

The infection rate in every region, including on Long Island, is low enough that it falls well under the threshold Cuomo set in late June to address school reopening. Exactly how schools will reopen for the 2020-21 academic year — whether in-person, for online classes only, or some mix of both — remains up to each individual district.
