PATERSON, New Jersey (WABC) -- Teachers are being welcomed back to school buildings today in Paterson, after a confusing back-and-forth about in-person learning.

Officials say teachers will work Monday through Thursday in-person and work remotely on Fridays.

Students in select special education and English language learners programs will return June 8.

There is no word on when the rest of the students will return.
