Join us for this lunchtime presentation and conversation series exploring the ways that schools and districts can build safe, strong and healthy schools.
The episodes will feature conversations with and presentations from physician leaders in pediatrics, infectious diseases, mental health, and other fields relevant to 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?
As parents and schools consider these questions and the decisions on how to bring kids back into the classroom, the Department of Pediatrics, Healthy Kids Collaborative, and partners are here to help schools safely reopen, monitor, and adapt throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This series is produced by the Healthy Kids Collaborative and the Department of Pediatrics.
