PolicyLab Launches Back to School Blog Post Series & Releases School Reopening Guidance
PolicyLab recently launched our annual “Back to School” blog post series in which our experts discuss the top health-related issues facing children and families as they head back to school. This year, COVID-19 weighs heavy as an unprecedented challenge for schools, families and children. The decisions at hand are difficult. As we work to provide access to health information during this time, we are grateful to be part of a community of medical and public health colleagues who share this commitment and are appreciative of the undaunted and tireless planning schools have undertaken since the spring, as well as the many individuals and organizations working to help children and families during this time.
Among the resources we share today are evidence-based guidance to support local jurisdictions and school administrators in their planning. Read our quick reference guide for reopening schools, our policy review focused on evidence and considerations for school reopenings and see below for a list of blog posts in our Back to School series:
- Preparing for Mental Health Needs of College Students Amid COVID-19
