“We’re expecting winter weather overnight tonight which could lead to 5-8 inches of snow with locally higher amounts by the morning. As a result, all NYC public schools will move to remote learning tomorrow”, Mayor Eric Adams wrote on X, on Monday morning, February 12. The city’s weather forecast warned that a snowstorm will be happening over all the five boroughs.
Along with the classes shifting to remote learning, Tuesday’s after school programs will also be canceled.
Last time NYC public schools were fully remote was with former Mayor Bill de Blasio, in December 2020. Then, as now, the de Blasio Administration decided to shut down schools and shifting to remote learning in anticipation of a snowstorm.
The city’s Emergency Department will be issuing a Travel Advisory tonight into tomorrow, until the snowstorm has passed. In the meantime, winter storm warnings and watches are in place across the five boroughs.
