TAMPA, Fla. (August 17, 2020) – Going back to school may look different for many families this year. To provide parents and caregivers information to help get kids back to learning safely, BayCare launched its back-to-school resource hub:

“Whether a child will go back to school in person or learn at home, we want to help them stay healthy – both physically and mentally,” said St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital President Sarah Naumowich.

On the back-to-school resource page, families have access to podcasts, videos and articles that offer health and safety information as well as the opportunity to find a pediatrician or pediatric specialist.

Some of the featured content includes:

  • Video interviews featuring BayCare experts regarding back-to-school safety and how to talk to kids about the best way to properly wear and store masks
  • Podcast discussion regarding the decision to send kids back to school in person during COVID-19
  • Animated videos for children that demonstrate the proper way to wear a mask, how to prevent the spread of germs and the proper way to wash your hands
  • Articles that provide information on helping children cope with COVID-19, keeping kids safe while social distancing, how to kill germs in the home, and tips for keeping kids active while eLearning at home
  • General back-to-school topics such as immunizations, backpack safety, healthy lunch options and signs of bullying

The web page is organized with COVID-19 resources at the top, followed by general learning information for infants/toddlers, kids and teens. Content is arranged by target audience so that users can easily find the information they need.

“The back-to-school resource hub offers a variety of information to help get kids back to learning safely and we hope families in our community find the resource helpful,” said Naumowich.
