NYC Public Schools has pushed back its start date for in-person classes until Sept. 21, the New York Times reports

Most students who are participating in remote learning will also now start on that date. The 10-day delay will allow principals and other school officials more time to prepare for the beginning of the year.

NYC Public Schools is the only district in a major city to open its schools with in-person instruction this fall. Other districts such as Chicago Public Schools and Los Angeles Unified School District are starting the school year remotely.
