For the first time in about six months, students are returning to middle and high schools in New York City.
In-person learning is beginning on Thursday at about 800 school buildings throughout the five boroughs. This follows K through 5 and K through 8 schools reopening early this week.
Nearly half of students have opted for all-remote learning. The rest will have blended learning, with a combination of remote and in-person education.
