Introduction

COVID-19  and the resulting shut down of  activities that students were accustomed to, has created greater anxiety in many students. It is important to  take steps  to educate students in a manner that does not  heighten fear and anxiety.

 


Philosophy
To develop activities that  will hep students learn about COVID-19 in a rational and non-threatening manner.

 


Process

  1. Provide lessons on COVID-19, along with the precautions and steps to take to prevent the spread of the disease.  These include:
    • Frequent hand washing and social distancing
    • Staying within the cohort
    • Not exposing others to sickness
    • Coughing in a safe manner
  2. Create activities in which students can use their creativity to display their knowledge of preventative techniques  and the need to treat each other as normal.
    • Some of these can include a school and Archdiocesan level competition to develop materials that spread the news about COVID-19 (poster contest, videos performed by students, etc.).
