Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

For School Administrators and Educators

Across the country, school leaders are faced with the enormous challenge of determining what measures to take to safely reopen schools for in-person education. Ultimately, each school system will need to make decisions about their approach based on factors unique to their educational settings, student populations and communities. As schools develop and refine their plans, Children’s National Hospital is here to help.  

As a trusted source for information, we are providing schools with data-backed insights and advice from our pediatric medical and mental health experts, infectious disease specialists and members of our pandemic response team.  

Beyond our expertise, we have relevant, real-world experience to share with schools. As one of the nation’s top children’s hospitals in a region hit early by the pandemic, we have had many months of experience on the front lines, protecting the safety of our team members so that they could fulfill our mission of caring for children and families who rely on us.  We understand the complex dynamics, as well as the sense of responsibility, that schools face. 

There are many ways we can help:

  • We are offering free webinars on a variety of topics developed specifically to support school administrators, teachers, school nurses and others involved in making informed decisions on how to best provide K-12 education during a pandemic.
  • We are providing FAQs and links to helpful resources via this website, including our Returning to Sports Guidelines and School Nursing Resources.
