Webinar Series: Returning to School Safe and Strong
Join us for a webinar series about how schools can learn to reopen safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Primary care pediatricians are at the front lines of caring for children and advising families during this pandemic. Parents are turning to you to understand how to determine how to deal with the stressors of starting a new school year virtually and, when the time is right, whether it’s safe to send their kids back to school.
Children’s National Hospital has compiled information and presented webinars that can help you advise families in your practice.

Here are some items to consider as you counsel parents and kids on the return to learning.
Returning to School: Health-Related Concerns
Primary care pediatricians have been – and will continue to be – on the front lines of care for children who are exposed to COVID-19. The pandemic has created a number of ancillary health concerns among the children we care for. We’ve compiled some topics to consider as you conduct well child visits.
Public Health Guidelines for Returning to School
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released guidance for school re-entry to ensure school districts are considering all of the risks of children and adolescents not being in schools – not just the risks of spreading COVID-19.

For providers who want to help parents talk with their children and know the signs of depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions, take a look at these information sheets prepared by our mental health experts at Children's National Hospital.
Returning to Sports: What Communities Need to Know
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, many communities are trying to figure out the safest way to restart youth sports leagues. While we cannot remove all risks associated with sports and COVID-19, we can provide guidelines for minimizing risk to our young athletes and all those involved in youth sports.
How to Assess and Manage Ill Students and Possible Exposures to COVID-19
Our experts at Children’s National Hospital have created guidelines, based on CDC and AAP recommendations, for helping schools reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic. Every school has its own unique circumstances and student population, and should adapt these guidelines to fit their needs.
