This is a story that has been made to help children return to school after having the last few months off of school due to COVID-19.
This story has been adapted from an original that was sent out to the parents of the school I currently work in to help children understand the changes that had to be made in order for them to safely return to school in June 2020. The feedback I received from both parent and children was very positive. It started conversations about the changes that would be happening and became a discussion point in school about how things have changed.
This adaptation focuses on some of the changes that have been made in all schools, but is left open ended so that parents and teachers can start conversations about the specific changes that are happening in their setting.
