The COVID-19 pandemic is complex and evolving. Schools must be responsive to changing circumstances and public health trends. Because of this, the information about how schools will safely operate in the 2020-2021 school year can feel confusing and overwhelming. In our COVID Clarity series, we will present the facts about how schools will navigate this historic school year.
For more information on feeding programs nationally, see the August press release from the USDA: “USDA Extends Free Meals for Kids Through December 31, 2020”.
One of the best ways that we can support our educators, families, and students during this time is by eliminating confusion. Schools are continuously monitoring citywide health trends and prioritizing the safety of students and educators, above all else.
