Parents-

I know this situation is stressful and scary and we are all navigating new waters to go about our daily lives.  Children might have a variety of emotions and reactions.  I wanted to share two great resources for parents about COVID-19. One is from the Centers from Disease Control (CDC) and one is from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).  Please make sure to get information about COVID-19 from reliable sources such as these and be careful about believing information you see on social media. There is a lot of misinformation floating around.

I am available by email for any concerns or questions you may have  kimberlymartin@smsd.org. I am missing your wonderful children and our wonderful Shawanoe family but we will all get through this together.

Padres-

Sé que esta situación es estresante y atemorizante y todos estamos navegando por nuevas aguas para llevar a cabo nuestra vida cotidiana.  Los niños pueden tener una variedad de emociones y reacciones.  Quería compartir dos excelentes recursos para padres sobre COVID-19.  Uno es de los Centros para el Control de Enfermedades (CDC) y el otro es de la Academia Americana de Pediatría (AAP).  Asegúrese de obtener información sobre COVID-19 de fuentes confiables como estas y tenga cuidado de creer la información que ve en las redes sociales.  Hay mucha información errónea flotando.
