City schools open up its doors to virtual learning this week

 Schools across New York City started their distance learning programs this week.
After schools across the city closed their doors due to the coronavirus, the Diocese of Brooklyn opened its virtual door for every student. 
Each student recieved a chromebook or iPad with data plans to learn online.
"Even though we're not in the school building, we're still connected and we're still connecting with each other," said Kevin Flanagan the Principal at St. Anselm Catholic Academy. 
The children have classes in each subject in each subject over Google Classroom and Zoom. 
Flanagan said right now they are planning to be closed until April 20 and they are approaching it like they will be back in school after that date. Although he says he understands that the decision to re-open is a city and state level decision.
