Safe, Strong, & Healthy Schools
This spring, the series will explore the impacts of COVID-19 on schools and on child health. The conversations in the episodes below will feature presentations from physician leaders in pediatrics, infectious disease, mental health, and other relevant fields addressing important questions like:
How do we ensure safe, child and staff-centered protocols for welcoming everyone back to the classroom?
What is the scientific evidence driving these decisions?
What will school districts need to consider for children and staff wellbeing as schools phase in in-person learning and teaching?
What should districts anticipate around behavioral and mental health needs of students and staff?
And much more—including questions submitted by attendees!
As parents and schools consider these questions and make decisions on how to bring kids back into the classroom, the Department of Pediatrics, Healthy Kids Collaborative, and our partners are here to help schools safely reopen, monitor, and adapt throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
