The back-to-school season this year will look different than any year before. COVID-19 protocols vary depending on where you live and your child’s grade, so be sure to check your school’s plan for students returning to class if and when they head back to the classroom.

By approaching back-to-school with a plan, you and your child will be in a position to tackle the new school year with confidence, whether your child is learning from the classroom, from home, or a combination of both.
