Barron Trump will not return to in-person classes at his Maryland private school until October — even as his president father threatens to cut much-needed funding to school districts that go remote this fall.

Barron, 14, and other students at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac won’t return to campus until Oct. 1, following a county directive issued Friday, CNN reported.

“Nonpublic schools located within Montgomery County, Maryland are prohibited from physically reopening for in-person instruction through October 1, 2020,” read the directive, which noted that “nonpublic school” refers to any school located in the county that is not part of the public school system.

“This includes but is not limited to all private pay schools, schools affiliated with religious institutions, or schools that are otherwise considered to be independent schools,” the directive says.

Trump said last month that schools nationwide must resume in-person teaching, warning that he might slash funding to any states or school districts that defy his push to reopen.

“Is important for the children & families. May cut off funding if not open!” he tweeted July 8.

“I disagree with @CDCgov on their very tough & expensive guidelines for opening schools. While they want them open, they are asking schools to do very impractical things. I will be meeting with them!!!” he said in another July 8 tweet.
