Back to School Safety
We wish all students returning to school a very safe and successful year. By now most children are back, whether via classroom, virtual or hybrid learning. One thing is certain: things have changed. Health and safety measures are important, especially during the school year. In light of COVID-19, these measures are even more critical. Handwashing, mask-wearing and social distancing can be challenging routines to instill in young children. Combined with another new school routine there can be much anxiety and stress.
Below are some suggestions for making the transition back to school both enjoyable and safe:
Fun Fall Activities
Fall is here and with that comes colorful leaves, brisk air, pumpkins and more! There are many activities you may enjoy while staying safe.

Fresh air and a rainbow of colors is always healthy! NYC has many parks and special events available for families this fall.
