Whoa, NYC schools are scheduled to reopen next week starting Monday. As of Thursday there were mentally ill patients still calling some NYC schools “home”.Chancellor Dennis Walcott would not promise to keep evacuees away from kids. (WHAT?)
Asked multiple times during a conference call with reporters, Walcott declined to rule out students having contact with people who’d taken refuge in shelters.
“Our goal is to have schools operational Monday,” Walcott said. “The shelters will be there and we will have schools operational.”
