Parents and teachers are reacting after the city pushes back the start of public schools.
The decision came just days before students were set to return to the classroom.
The decision was also made after the teacher's union announced they might approve a strike if schools reopened as planned on Sept. 10.
However, just hours before a vote on the strike, the union and city were able to reach a deal.
Students are now set to begin remote only classes on Sept. 16 and in-person will start on Sept. 21
City officials are hoping the push back will give schools more time to make sure the necessary procedures are in place to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Despite the new guidelines, many families say they plan to stick with remote-only learning.
While a lot of parents and teachers say the delay is the right move, there is some mixed reaction.
