As a parent, I am very concerned about how my son will do in school this year with all the changes happening because of COVID-19.

I know that I have questions on how school will go and what happens if someone in the school tests positive for COVID-19. I also know that my son is a little worried about it all as well, but as a parent, I think we are forgetting that Teachers are Moms and Dads too and they are not only worried about their students, they are worried about their own kids.

I love this exercise that the Principal did at Sweet Home High School this week. It shows that it is OK to be worried, that it is OK to have anxiety over schools re-opening, we are all in the same boat. With that knowledge, we can also all work together to make sure school runs as smoothly as possible for all kids.
