Back to School Tips for the Family

Back to school season is here! Due to COVID-19, schools are switching to fully online or hybrid programs to protect children against the dangers of the virus. While it is safest to conduct schooling from home, some families do not have that option. Revisn has compiled a list of tips from the CDC to make this transition a little smoother for you and your young ones.

Keep sick children at home

If your child becomes ill, even with a mild case of the cold or allergies, keep them at home for the duration of their illness. Sending children to school who are sick already puts them and their classmates at risk. Every morning check your child for signs of illness and conduct a temperature check. The CDC recommends this precaution along with familiarizing yourself with local COVID-19 testing locations in case their symptoms align with that of the virus: sore throat, body aches, and coughing, to name a few.

Prepare multiple face coverings

Your child should wear a face mask when outside of the home and to school every day. Stock up on several reusable masks for your child to choose from. Be sure to send your child to school every day with a cloth face covering without a valve, as the CDC recommends against this style of mask. Pick out masks with different colors or designs that your kid loves as part of your back-to-school shopping plan. Remember to wash masks after every use; cycling through a handful of masks makes this easiest.

Instruct your child on staying safe

Be open and honest with your child about the risks involved in returning to school. Instruct them on the importance of frequent hand washing, mask wearing, and social distancing. Talk to your child about their boundaries and help instill confidence in them to vouch for their own safety while at school. If another classmate wants to share food, toys, or writing instruments, explain the risks associated with that and advise your child against sharing items in the classroom.

Talk to your child

More than likely, parents, children, and teachers alike are all anxious about returning to school in-person. The best way to combat this anxiety is to establish an atmosphere at home where your child can freely express their emotions. Share up to date and relevant facts on COVID-19 with your children regardless of age. Knowledge is power!
