Many parents, caregivers, and guardians face new and difficult choices about how their child will return to school in the fall, such as deciding between in-person and virtual learning.

This tool is designed to help parents, caregivers, and guardians weigh the risks and benefits of available educational options to help them make decisions about sending their child back to school. It is organized to provide parents and caregivers with:

  • Information on COVID-19 and why safely reopening schools is so critical.
  • Tools to:
  • Help you assess your child’s and your family’s risk of COVID-19;
  • Consider factors that will help you make a choice, if offered, of instructional format (e.g. virtual, in person, or a hybrid option); and
  • Prepare for the school year, regardless of format.
