Nearly every school community in the nation here has felt the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. At Kaiser Permanente Thriving Schools, we understand that those who work in schools and the families who rely on schools for daily learning, support, and sustenance are facing multiple challenges. We want you to know that we are here to support you.
The resources below have been developed to support school leaders and communities in navigating the coronavirus and providing safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all. We are grateful to our many partner organizations working in school health who have been instrumental in developing and curating these resources with us. Together we are working to elevate the importance of healthy schools as the foundation for health in our communities.
