Preparing students for the 2020-21 school year has a new set of challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Schools, students, and parents are all working to balance the importance of education with the safety, health, and well-being of students and staff.
With the health and safety of your children being your top priority, there are certain precautions that you can take to keep your child and their fellow classmates safe.
Keep Children Home if They Have Symptoms of Illness
It is important for parents to add checking their child’s temperature to the list of morning routine activities. It is also important to make sure your child does not have any other symptoms of illness, such as a cough.
Disinfect the Home Right After School
As soon as your children return home from school, it is important to disinfect areas of the home, especially frequently used areas such as play areas, the kitchens, bathrooms, etc. You will also want to make sure that children wash their hands as soon as they enter the home.
You may also consider running an air purifier in the home to help remove contaminants and promote cleaner, healthier air.
New School Supplies to Help Follow Restrictions
New school supplies will be very crucial for students this year since restrictions will prevent the school from providing communal supplies likes pens, pencils, markers, etc. School supplies, aside from the basics like notebooks, pencils, erasers, scissors, and pens, students should also include the following on their back to school shopping list:
• Face masks/coverings
• Lanyard, to hold a mask around the neck so that it is easy to access
• Hand sanitizers
