Prepare Students for In-School Safety Measures
Principal Asaro is asking families to help their children prepare for new in-school safety measures that will be in effect when school opens on September 8. Following are a few things you can do at home before school begins:
Have Your Child Practice Wearing a Face Mask During the Day: Students will be expected to wear a face mask at school. Although mask breaks will be provided throughout the school day, many children may not be used to wearing a mask for extended periods of time.
Practice Hand Washing with Younger Children: Frequent hand washing is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please work with your children – especially those in grades K-2 – to make sure they know how to wash their hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds.
Reinforce the Importance of Social Distancing: A new school year is an exciting time when children will have the urge to physically interact (hugs, high fives, etc.) with their teachers and peers. Please talk to your child about the importance of maintaining social distance.
