As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our way of life, we recognize that schools and families are engaged in daily challenges to support ourselves and our students. As the number of cases of COVID-19 increase, so does the level of fear, stress and anxiety being experienced in our communities. As we shift to remote learning environments, it is important to not overlook the mental health impacts that this may also be having on our staffs, families and students.
With this in mind, the National School Boards Association's Center for Safe Schools, in collaboration with the Attachment & Trauma Network, has hosted a virtual roundtable discussion on Navigating Virtual Education -- with Calm, Connectedness and Compassion. This discussion focuses on the impact of school closures and the new "normal" this is creating for families and educators alike. This discussion addresses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on schools and families and how we can help children and families, especially those with adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), navigate this new environment.
