The largest school district in the nation has reopened all of its high schools. On Monday, high school students in New York City resumed in-person instruction for the first time since November.

This week, the district expected to welcome up to 55,000 students, which is roughly 20 percent of the high school population. Meanwhile, the majority continue remote learning. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio thanked teachers and added, he is hopeful for the future.

“To see teenagers are so ready to be back at school, happy to be back with their friends, happy to be back with their teachers and really supportive, warm school community,” de Blasio noted. “Where you know every single day that a child is in that building, with those teachers and staff, [and] they are getting love, support and they are getting the kind of incredible gifts educators give to kids.”

Bill de Blasio also said the majority of schools in the district were expected to provide in-person instruction five days a week.
