Families with children in New York City’s public schools are hopeful the third time’s the charm. Officials delayed a return to in-person instruction for the nation’s largest public school system twice this month because they could not come up with enough teachers and supplies to meet the safety standards outlined in a tenuous agreement with the district’s unions. Students attend virtually with some preschool and special education classes onsite for the first time this week.
