Many students are returning back to the classroom for the first time since the pandemic began! Students are likely experiencing a range of emotions, from excited to fearful. There are many ways you can help your child successfully return to in-person learning.
Practice/role play potentially stressful social interactions (introduction to class, meeting a new teacher, reading aloud, speaking in front of the class, etc.)
Remain positive! There are a lot of stressors with the return to school, but staying optimistic about the school year will increase their confidence in returning.
Reviewing school expectations (raising hand, mask wearing, requesting permission to leave the room, etc.)
Review your child’s supports in the classroom and stay connected with your child’s teachers and support staff
