New York City Schools to go remote due to winter storm

NEW YORK (WABC) — New York City is witching classes to remote learning and closing its buildings Tuesday because of the winter storm

There is a winter storm warning for New York City, Long Island, and much of the Tri-State area with a mix of rain and snow on the way.

“With several inches of snow, poor visibility on the roads, and possible coastal flooding heading our way, New Yorkers should prepare in advance of (Tuesday’s) storm and take the necessary precautions to remain safe,” New York City Mayor Eric Adams said in a statement. “If you do not have to be on the roads (Tuesday), please stay home.”

All Catholic Elementary Schools in the Archdiocese of New York will be closed Tuesday. The day will be a “traditional snow day” with no remote instruction. This includes Catholic schools in New York City and the upper suburban counties.

Archdiocesan High Schools operate independently, so high school families need to follow instructions from their individual schools.

Elsewhere, Yonkers Public Schools will be closed Tuesday and all afterschool programs, including afterschool child care programming, will be canceled.
