It's important to talk with someone about all the feelings that may be coming up for you all... we are living in new ways and it's hard to stay home all the time. Also notice the feelings and needs of others... ask your siblings or your parent or guardians if they need anything! Call on the counselor or nurse for help!
Despite an overwhelming number of resources out there about Coronavirus it remains important for us to educate ourselves so that we may educate our children and families as we move forward in this pandemic. Listed on this page are links to websites and videos to share with your family and community.
We start with this wonderful video (also found on Coach Jarvis' excellent PE website!) published by 'eurac research' in Italy. It beautifully explains this new type of coronavirus, how a virus works, and all about staying healthy during these times.

There are so many concerns and questions about the duration and effect of the pandemic; but, no clear answers as it changes from day-to-day.
The one clear awareness is that we can decrease the spread of this disease by washing hands, covering coughs/sneezes, wearing masks, social distancing (6 feet between you and others), cleaning surfaces, and staying home.
We can also help by sharing information with our children in ways that make sense for them.
We also help by caring for ourselves and for others by following recommended precautions but also by listening with our kids and with each other…by practicing self-care and by being engaged in the care and well-being of our community.
