The School District of Philadelphia plans to re-open another 22 schools serving young children on April 5.
Children in pre-K through second grade will be welcomed back to classrooms for two days a week, joining students at 133 other schools that have reopened since the beginning of March.
Right now, in-person learning is only available to district students whose families chose hybrid in a survey conducted last fall. But the district is giving families another chance to opt in through Tuesday. Those children would also return to school buildings starting April 5.
By that date, every district school serving children in pre-K through second grade will be open, with the exception of Gilbert Spruance Elementary School in Northeast Philadelphia.
The teachers union has “requested an additional day or two to complete its readiness review” of that school, according to a district release.
The Philadelphia Federation of Teachers will now begin reviewing school buildings that serve older children for safety, according to the district.
So far officials have announced no plans for bringing older kids back to classrooms this year.
