The New York Times reported that a high school in Manhattan will reopen for the 2017-18 school year after students were evacuated.
Principal Kristina DeGrimm said the school will reopen on July 31, which means the students will not be able to return to school for the rest of the summer.
The school has reopened with the school year over for 2017-2018.
DeGriml said the students and staff will be receiving the following services, as they continue to recover from the events of the previous school year: Medical treatment and rehabilitation services for children with physical and mental disabilities; Teaching for children of color, including services that include bilingual instruction, physical education, and health care; Parenting and tutoring for students who may have been involved in the school’s student conduct program.
De Grimm also said the district will continue to provide support to students, parents, and staff through scholarships, awards, and financial support for students and their families.
“We’re committed to working with families and students to provide them with the care and support they need, and our hearts are with them,” DeGime said.
DeGime was in Manhattan on Tuesday to celebrate the start of the school reopening with students, teachers, and administrators.
“We want to thank our parents, students, and community for their love, support, and love of the district,” De Griml told reporters after the announcement.
According to the Associated Press, about 2,200 students and 1,300 staff members were sent home on Monday, as a result of the evacuation.
In an interview with The New Yorker, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city will offer support to affected students.
“I think they’ll be fine, and I know they’ll get support from all of us,” he said.
“This is a huge city, and the city has the resources, but it also needs to be a compassionate community.
I want to encourage everybody in the city to support and support the families who have lost everything.”
The reopening of the Montessori School is not the first time the school has been closed.
Last year, the school closed its doors for the second consecutive year, in light of the terrorist attacks in Paris.
Students had to find temporary homes at various locations around the city, including New York City Public Schools.
Parents, students and the Monts were among the first to report the school was closed.
