New York City school kids will get their usual holidays off this year, but will not catch a break on Election Day.
The Department of Education finally released its calendar for the school year and it shows all students will have to attend class remotely on Nov. 3. With schools used as polling sites, Election Day is typically a holiday for students and staff development day for teachers.
The school calendar has been in flux as the DOE has tried to iron out the details of its remote and blended learning plans put in place to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The first day of in-school classes is slated for Sept. 21.
