BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Students in Grades 4 through 8 were allowed to return to the classroom in Boston on Monday. The students will be returning for two days a week, and are split into two groups, one which will attend school on Mondays and Tuesday, and one that will attend school on Thursday and Fridays.
Lower elementary school students from Pre-K to grade 3 already returned to in-person learning on March 1.
High school students are set to return to schools on March 29.
The return comes as the school system's first staff-only vaccination site opened Sunday at the Gallivan Community Center in Mattapan.
Mayor Marty Walsh said at a press conference on Monday that the Boston Public School district is working toward compliance with the state's guidelines, that would give every student the option to learn in class.
"We're going to respect the families' choice, so remote learning will be an option for all families," he said.
