Sep 9 2020, 12:58 pm

As children across British Columbia transition back to school after the summer break, and amidst a global pandemic, Fraser Health has created new online resources to answer “common” questions.

The new back-to-school resources for parents and teachers include a COVID-19
Q&A page focused on the return to school as well as a video Q&A featuring Dr. Tyler
speaking to COVID-19’s impact on the classroom environment.

“While the return to school is traditionally an exciting time for parents, teachers and students alike, this year people may have questions about the public health measures that are being taken to support the return to in-classroom activities,” said Fraser Health Medical Officer Dr. Ingrid Tyler. “Fraser Health Public Health continues to work closely with school districts and our Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education partners to support students’ return to school.”

To further support parents and teachers, Fraser Health’s Healthy Back to School Guide provides parents with tips on how to manage back-to-school anxiety and prepare healthy lunches their children will eat, among others.

Fraser Health has also posted a school health web resource to provide parents and teachers with information about topics such as kindergarten readiness, mental wellness, support services for children, and resources for teachers and administrators.
