White House press secretary Jen Psaki refused to state during her press briefing on Monday whether high schoolers will be returning to the classroom even after they are vaccinated against coronavirus.

Psaki was asked by a reporting, noting that Dr. Fauci said that high schools will be vaccinated by the fall, whether secondary school students will be returning to the classroom after being fully vaccinated.

"We are thrilled to have [Education] Secretary Cardona confirmed and he, as you know, [is] going to be hosting an education summit to talk about the reopening of schools and look ahead to what needs to be done" she began.

"That applies, of course, not just to K-5 or K-8, but also high schools," Psaki continued. The Biden administration has already committed to reopening elementary schools as vaccinations ramp up across the country.

"We also are on track for the President to sign into law the American rescue plan, which has $160 billion in it to ensure that schools who don't have the resources needed can make these facility upgrades, as well get testing in place, hire teachers and bus drivers, but I will leave it to the Secretary of Education to determine the timeline or the path forward for high schools."

Many states which have faced severe coronavirus lockdowns have announced that high schools will be reopening. In New York, a state with some of the most severe restrictions, the reopening of high schools is scheduled to take place on March 22.
