Back to school

It is back to school season. School districts are announcing their plans for this school year to keep staff and children safe.

In our practice we have seen only a handful of positive COVID-19 tests. We have a very low incidence in our area for children. These numbers seem to hold up statewide and even across the nation. Children don’t seem to be as effected by COVID-19.

Realizing kids aren’t going to be as effected by COVID-19, we are recommending in person school as much as available. Kids need to have the social interaction, academic stimulation and physical exercise that school provides.

Here are some links about school attendance.
