Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the Bridge to School plan Wednesday that aims to get students back into the classroom.
This curriculum is meant to help students get back into learning in the classroom as they go through the pandemic.
There will be a curriculum for students, training for teachers and principals and resources both in-person and virtually.
The mayor says the goal of the Bridge to School plan is to help students cope during the first few weeks of school by providing social and emotional lessons. First Lady Chirlane McCray says staff will be given trauma responsive education training, which principals completed this summer, and will have access to a help line to answer urgent questions to help students.
The Bridge to School plan is supposed to kick off in the first few weeks of school.
The mayor also discussed the Sheriff's report on travel coming from restricted states.
Mayor de Blasio urges New Yorkers or those traveling to New York to make sure they are filling out the quarantine form if they are traveling from the restricted states.
According to the mayor, there has been 3,000 vehicle stops so far and only two summonses issued.
