New York Schools Will Remain Closed For Remainder Of Academic Year, Governor Says

ALBANY (CBSNewYork) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo says New York schools will remain closed for the rest of the academic year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“How do you operate a school that’s socially distanced, with masks, without gatherings, with a public transportation system that has a lower number of students on it? How would you get that plan up and running?” the governor said Friday. “We don’t think it’s possible to do that in a way that would keep our children, students and educators safe.”

Schools will continue to offer remote learning for students at home.

Cuomo said a decision will be made about summer school programs by the end of the month.

The governor had said it was a decision that needed to be made on a regional level, in coordination with New Jersey and Connecticut.
