New York City public high schools are preparing to reopen for in-person learning.

As part of his daily press briefing on Monday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said 55,000 students who opted for in-person learning will be able to return on March 22.

However, the 282,000 other students in the system who opted out will continue to learn remotely.

High school sports are also set to resume, with competitive play to begin in May. Participants will have to wear masks and no spectators will be allowed.

“Our coaches know, as we all do, that this is so essential, not only for academics, but also for mental health,” NYC schools Chancellor Meisha Porter stated. “Sports, in particular, provide a much needed outlet for our kids, and they have been without that for nearly a year at this point.”

Public schools in the city were closed in November in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Elementary schools in the area reopened in December, while middle schools reopened in February.
