Schools out — for the foreseeable future.

The New York City public-school system will be closed for in-person learning starting Thursday due to rising COVID-19 rates, Mayor de Blasio said — leaving many parents furious.

With the city’s average infection rate hitting 3 percent over the past seven days, in-building activity will be “temporarily” suspended, the mayor said.

All students in the nation’s largest school district will now learn remotely from home — and it’s not clear when they’ll get back to class.
