Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

Returning to School: Educational Concerns

School districts in our region are gradually announcing their plans for the fall. Primary care practices play an important role in preparing children and families for back-to-school and in supporting them throughout the school year. 

Many children will be returning to virtual learning. Families may face multiple challenges with virtual learning. Virtual learning can pose hardships for families with the loss of full-time, in-person instruction for their children. In addition to academics, schools provide nutrition, physical activity, health care, Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, mental health services and much more. With most schools offering virtual learning only, primary care practices will have the most opportunity for in-person contact with children and families this year.
