Reopening schools this fall is one of the important decisions for US districts.
When will schools reopen? Can it be secure for schools to reopen in the fall? What are the SOPs?
These are a few of the common questions that every parent thinks. In some states, some schools are already offering online courses while some schools intend to start school with in-person instructions.
Even though the situation is changing very quickly, but we strive our best to keep updating this story.
After the outbreak, in March, the majority of schools decided to cancel the in-person classes until the spread of ceases stops. But now all 50 states start talking, schools’ safety and declared to resume in-person classes in the fall.
In a White House press conference Donald Trump reported that schools might need to Daley reopening for a couple of weeks. Recently the USA president asserted that reopening schools are secure and that students needed to go back so that their parents could go back to work.
But in a few areas, the schools must remain close where the spread of Coronavirus is out of control.
Some districts ruled out reopening the schools, these districts are San Diego and Los Angeles. While some districts plan to provide classes that are hybrids. New York City offers a mixture of online and on-site classes.
The reason that prevents reopening of schools is the lack of funding to implement the safety measures. Donald Trump asking congress to offer education funding as part of the virus relief invoice contains some 90 billion. This funding aims to help in implementing the safety step in schools.
Things Children Should Do in Order to Help Schools Safely Open
But the concern is that it’s infeasible for many school districts to implement the SOPs with no strong partnership with parents and school staff. But here the issue is the directions that parents need to follow in order to implement Schools Reopening.
Below are a few of the items that parents must do to Help School Safely Open.
1. Every Kid Must have a Safety Kit
A safety kit that comprises of different fabric masks that are secure and comfortable to every kid, as well as a kid, need to have a bottle of hand sanitizer. Masks are suggested to prevent droplets from reaching others.
2. Parents Will Need to Look after their Childs Health
Parents may take on the responsibility of understanding COVID-19’s symptoms and monitor their children at home. Because parents already know the symptoms of coronavirus so they will be good screeners.
3. Keep Children at Home
If anybody in the family has symptoms of coronavirus, then parents keep their children at home. And inform this to school also.
4. Parents prepare their child to follow the rules in school
Parents should talk with their children about the significance of new principles, like personal hygiene, physical distance, and wearing masks. They need to educate their child to adhere to all rules in school, school excursions, and school buses.
5. Find out whether the school has emergency guidelines
Do schools have emergency programs? Have school faculty received instruction to confront emergency crises? Parents should determine whether the school fulfills all safety measures, safety plans, and crisis guidelines according to the recommendation of WHO (World Health Organization).
Along with school reopening, everybody wants the school to reopen in the fall. But in this pandemic situation, schools’ reopening depends on how well faculty staff and parents obey the rules.
Moreover to stop the spread of the virus parents should do their part.
