NEW YORK (PIX11) – New York City public schools will remain open Thursday despite the arriving winter storm, Mayor de Blasio’s office has confirmed.
All school field trips are canceled, however.
The decision comes despite a hazardous travel warning that is also in effect, and winter storm warnings in New York and New Jersey.
De Blasio also received criticism after he decided to keep schools open last week, with some parents angry after scrambling to get their children to school in icy, difficult conditions.
