NH governor: All K-12 schools must return to full-time, in-person learning starting April 19

CONCORD, New Hampshire — All K-12 schools in New Hampshire must return to full-time, in-person learning five days a week starting on April 19, Gov. Chris Sununu announced Thursday.

Most schools are already in-person five days a week, Sununu said in a tweet.

“The remaining schools will have had 6 weeks of hybrid learning as a ramp-up,” he said.

“We’re doing this for a few reasons: 1) We have said all along that schools can reopen safely and that remains true today 2) In a few short weeks, all teachers and school staff who want a vaccine will have received their second dose, 3) We are providing plenty of time to allow districts and parents to plan 4) We need to get our kids back in school. It’s a blessing that children remain at such a low risk for extreme symptoms,” Sununu said.
