Is your school district holding in-person classes? A successful re-entry hinges on compliance from families and students on following the safety measures set by school leaders.
According to the New Hampshire state guidelines, “a comprehensive communication plan for students, families, and staff can be the single most important tool available to districts as they navigate the reopening of school … including expectations for the proper use of cloth face coverings/masks, recommendations about hand hygiene, social distancing, and other prevention strategies.” With this in mind, parents of the Rye, NH PTA collaborated with school officials to launch a back-to-school preparedness campaign using yard signs, principal welcome letter inserts, and social media to encourage families to practice these safety protocols. The hope is that schools will stay healthier longer, and educators will spend less time teaching and policing these procedures.
