Schools across the Hudson Valley had until the end of the Friday to hold at least three meetings with parents and teachers to discuss reopening plans.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said schools can only open if it is "safe" to do so.
"Safe means they have the proper precautions in place and the teachers and the parents agree that they are safe to open," Cuomo said. "They have the protocols in place, the cohorting in place, contract tracing in place, whatever testing requirements they need in place."
Schools were also required to have reopening plans posted on their website by Friday.
Cuomo said districts that fail to meet Friday's deadline will be unable to provide in-person learning this fall.
