Posing for the perfect yearbook photo isn’t the only thing students need to prepare for this fall. As we enter yet another back-to-school season in the midst of a pandemic, staying safe in the classroom needs to remain on the syllabus.
vybe is here with some quick tips to help you and your family start the school year off on the right foot.
The past few weeks have seen an unwelcome uptick in COVID-19 cases, in large part due to the Delta variant. Communities with low vaccination rates are being hit hardest.
Before the first-period bell rings, take some time to prepare the students in your life for classroom best practices:
If you think your child has been exposed or is displaying COVID-like symptoms, a test is still the best way to know for sure. In the meantime, keep your child home from school. Self-isolating is an effective way to stop the spread of infection and keep other students and educators safe.
Having a clinician check in on your child’s well-being before the start of a new school year is a good idea, even if your child’s school doesn’t require it. Consider a back-to-school physical as an opportunity to ask any questions you have about your child’s health. You can conveniently visit your local vybe for your child’s K-12 back-to-school physical for $45.
