Blended learning will begin at public schools across the city, even as some staff members tested positive for coronavirus.
The Mid-Bronx Early Childhood Center is one just 56 schools that has had a positive coronavirus case, according to the Department of Education.
In-person classes for students comes in a phased model. Sept. 21 is the start for all Pre-K students at District 75.
On Sept. 29, kindergarten through fifth grade and K-8 schools will be allowed back in classrooms.
Middle school and high school students will return on Oct. 1.
The DOE is adding an additional 2,500 educators to fill in the holes for in-person learning, as many city teachers are complaining about shortages and the safety of returning to schools.
Students in fully remote classes will also be starting their full day of instruction on Monday.
The DOE recently changed their policy so students in the blended learning model are not guaranteed live instruction on the days they have remote learning.
The DOE says that if two positive coronavirus cases are confirmed in the same building, it will shut the school down and investigate the source.
