Talk with teachers about classroom assignments and activities they can do from home to keep up with their schoolwork.

Talk to your school about options for digital and distance learning. Discourage children and teens from gathering in other public places while school is dismissed to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the community.

Seek guidance from your school administrator to determine when students and staff should return to schools.  Duration of school dismissals will be made on a case-by-case basis based on the most up-to-date information about COVID-19 and the specific situation in your community. Students and staff should be prepared for durations that could last several days. Administrators should work with their local health authorities to determine duration of dismissals.
