Jersey City schools reopen under hybrid schedule

On Thursday, for the first time in a year, pre-K through third grade students returned to Jersey City classrooms for in-person learning, under a hybrid schedule. The return came after the district reversed course twice last week on reopening plans, over staffing concerns as hundreds applied for accommodations to work from home amid coronavirus and child care concerns.

About one-third of students are returning to in-person learning. As schools reopened their doors Thursday, many parents reveled in their kid’s joy, even as they battled their own apprehension.
