Dear CMS Families,

As the coronavirus continues to raise anxiety within our community, we’d like to equip parents and staff with student-centered resources to help explain what the coronavirus is. Learning the facts can help ease you and your child’s mind.

It is important to remember that children often turn towards adults for guidance on how to react and cope with stressful events. Children’s anxiety may rise when they sense adults who seem overly worried. It’s helpful to reassure children that health and school officials are working hard to ensure that people throughout the country stay healthy.

“Children need factual, age-appropriate information about the potential seriousness of the disease risk and concrete instruction about how to avoid infections and the spread of disease. Teaching children positive preventative measures, talking with them about their fears and giving them a sense of some control over their risk of infection can help reduce anxiety.”—The National Association of School Psychologists

The following resources have been created for parents and staff to help explain COVID-19 in an easy to understand, practical manner:

Talking to Children About COVID-19 (Coronavirus): A Parent Resource Just for Kids: A Comic Exploring The New Coronavirus
Coronavirus – BrainPOP Learning Experiences
Handwashing: Clean Hands Save Lives

We appreciate your continued support in helping us to instill healthy habits at home and in school by washing hands, coughing into elbows, and staying home when sick.

Estimadas familias de CMS:

A medida que el coronavirus continúa generando ansiedad dentro de nuestra comunidad, nos gustaría equipar a los padres y al personal con recursos centrados en los estudiantes para ayudar a explicar qué es el coronavirus. Conocer los hechos puede ayudarlo a aliviar la mente de usted y su hijo.

Es importante recordar que los niños a menudo recurren a los adultos para recibir orientación sobre cómo reaccionar y enfrentarse a los eventos estresantes. La ansiedad de los niños puede aumentar cuando ellos sienten que adultos parecen demasiado preocupados. Es útil asegurar a los niños que los funcionarios de salud y escolares están trabajando duro para garantizar que las personas en todo el país se mantengan saludables.

“Los niños necesitan información objetiva y apropiada para su edad sobre la posible gravedad del riesgo de enfermedad e instrucciones concretas sobre cómo evitar infecciones y la propagación de la enfermedad. Enseñar a los niños medidas preventivas positivas, hablar con ellos sobre sus miedos y darles una sensación de cierto control sobre su riesgo de infección puede ayudar a reducir la ansiedad ". - La Asociación Nacional de Psicólogos Escolares

Los siguientes recursos han sido creados para padres y personal para ayudar a explicar COVID- 19 de una manera fácil de entender y práctica:

Hable con sus hijos sobre el COVID-19 (coronavirus): Un recurso para padres

Talking to Children About COVID-19 (Coronavirus): A Parent Resource

Solo para niños: un cómic que explora el nuevo coronavirus

Just for Kids: A Comic Exploring The New Coronavirus

Coronavirus - Experiencias de aprendizaje BrainPOP

Coronavirus – BrainPOP Learning Experiences

Lavado de manos: las manos limpias salvan vidas

Handwashing: Clean Hands Save Lives

Apreciamos su continuo apoyo para ayudarnos a introducir hábitos saludables en el hogar y en la escuela al lavarse las manos, toser en los codos y quedarse en casa cuando está enfermo.
