New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Sunday that some of the city’s schools will reopen, starting with elementary schools on Dec. 7. District 75 schools, designed for kids who need special support like those “on the autism spectrum and children with serious cognitive delays,” will open on Dec. 10.

Mayor de Blasio had stopped in-person classes earlier in the month because the city had reached “the 3% testing positivity 7-day average threshold.”

The Mayor also said schools will require weekly testing and will be pushing for “5 day a week in-person learning”  wherever possible.
