NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – New York City public school students won’t have any snow days this winter amid hybrid learning, according to state Department of Education guidelines.

Under the guidelines, if in-person classes have to be canceled because of snowstorms or other weather, students will switch to remote learning instead of having classes canceled all together.

The city is required to have 180 days of instruction under state guidelines, so officials are trying to fit in as many days of education as possible.

Remote learning in the city begins Wednesday and in-person classes begin next Monday.
