Sample communications and ways to connect locally with schools and nurses

School Re-Opening Toolkit

With the closing of schools, our children have suffered setbacks in development, stress, and decreased access to educational, health and social resources.  Only if the everyone works with school systems, will communities succeed in tackling the challenges ahead.  Pediatricians can participate by providing guidance and resources to keep students, teachers, school administrators and staff and families safe and secure.


The task force has put together a School Re-Opening Toolkit to guide you in engaging your local school systems.
