If you’re a parent, chances are you are struggling with the dilemma of whether or not to send your kids to school full time. The pandemic has lasted longer than the average person would have expected and there is no end in sight. As we begin to move forward most are concerned with how their children will be able to attend school safely.
Following recent news, it appears that no one can agree on whether schools can open safely. The CDC and government officials are at odds with what the upcoming semesters will look like. Many districts have presented parents with various options that include hybrid and full remote learning. One thing we can all agree on is that our children’s safety is a high priority. In thinking about how to keep your children safe consider the following when preparing for back to school.
Children's mask: an essential item for kids this year. If returning back to school or sports your child will likely need multiple masks for the week. Keep track of your kid’s masks by labeling each one with their name or color-coding them according to each child. For reusable masks, consider buying a hanger or hooks to hang everyone's masks and keep them organized and easy to find quickly.
Hand Sanitizer clips: Make sure your kids are armed with their own hand sanitizer that can be clipped to their backpack, belt loop, or purse. Since these are refillable, they'll save you money and let you pick whatever sanitizer you prefer.
