Back-to-School Safety During the Coronavirus

backtoschool

As summer winds down and school is on the horizon, two issues weigh heavily on parents’ minds: What will education look like this fall, and what’s best for my child and family during the coronavirus pandemic?

Children’s Hospital Colorado is helping parents and caregivers make informed decisions based on facts, and they understand that every family’s situation is different. For some families, working from home, virtual learning or homeschooling are viable options. Other families are choosing for kids to return to school for social interaction with peers and in-person learning. And for others, schools play an essential role in children’s access to technology, mental health services, physical exercise and food.
