New York City is closing public schools Thursday and going with all online education. 

The city's COVID positivity rate is rising and passed the 3 percent benchmark set by school leaders to shut down. 

The district is the largest in the country, with more than a million students. But last month, officials say only about a quarter of them were back in a physical classroom.
