“The DOE will shift all students to remote instruction in lieu of cancelling schools due to severe weather conditions,” the department said in a statement to CNN, adding that the pandemic “created the ability to switch seamlessly to remote learning, and DOE central and schools have distributed hundreds of thousands of devices to ensure that learning can continue remotely during school closures.”
