NYC School Closings: Public Schools Remain Open despite Protest

-by Trista McKenzie, Contributing Writer

Though today’s snowstorm brought on a travel advisory for New York City, New York City public schools remain open, while Mayor Bill de Blasio has yet again been facing criticism for his handling of the storm.

While all field trips, after-school activities and PSAL events are cancelled, The United Federation of Teachers as well as many citizens have condemned the mayor’s decision to keep schools open this morning.

“I understand the desire to keep schools open,” Said United Federation of Teachers President Michael Mulgrew. “The only thing that trumps that is safety. Having students, parents and staff traveling in these conditions was unwarranted. It was a mistake to open schools today.”

Regardless, while public schools remain open, many private institutions throughout the New York City area have closed their doors this morning. Below is a list of school closings in the surrounding areas, courtesy of NBC New York:

Comment: NYC Schools should be closed today and tomorrow because of the snowstorm and the cleanup tomorrow. Winter recess next week should be reduced by 2 days to make up for the 2 miss days. Next Thursday and Friday would be perfect make up days.
