COVID-19 resulted in all schools going virtual in March 2020 and created unprecedented times for educators and students. Educators, parents and students all experienced high levels of stress, fear and anxiety. Resuming school and attending to the safety and social and emotional needs of students will be a challenge. Every student has a story to tell about their experience being quarantined at home. Many students will have anxiety about returning to schools, and self-care strategies for students are extremely important. Additionally, all students missed out on many important school activities that were scheduled for the spring of 2020. This session by a former national school crisis team leader will focus first on helping school staff with their anxiety about school resuming. The presentation provides action steps for school administrators as they plan for reopening school. All registrants will receive a Teachable Moment Lesson Plan that outlines for all teachers how to conduct classroom discussions to restore a sense of safety and security for students as they reenter their schools for the fall semester of 2020. The keys to resiliency and how to help students develop a self-care plan to deal with their stress and anxiety will be shared.
