Talking to Students about COVID-19 

Your children may have some questions regarding the virus and what’s happening. Here are a couple of resources to help guide your conversations with children and teens:

Just For Kids: A Comic Exploring The New Coronavirus
By NPR

This comic for children was created by NPR to help children understand the COVID-19. 

Talking to Children About COVID-19 (Coronavirus): A Parent Resource
By the National Association of School Psychologists

Your children will look to you for guidance on how to react to this stressful global event. Parents should remain calm, so as not to incite anxiety in children. Explain that health and school administration are working hard to limit risks and help everyone stay healthy.
