Be a Superhero!
Help your teachers and your classmates stay safe from COVID-19!
School may be different, but the changes are to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Your schedule and the way you do things may be different. Your classroom, cafeteria, and recess may be different. But these changes can keep you, your teacher, and your classmates from getting sick.
If you do what your teachers and your principal say, you will be helping to keep everyone healthy!
You’ll be a superhero!
COVID-19 can affect people you know. Following the rules keeps them safe.
Your teachers and other adults at your school may get sicker than kids will from COVID-19.
Some kids may live with their grandparents or other older adults. They can get very sick from COVID-19 if someone brings home the virus.
Some kids may have health problems that you don’t know about. They could get very sick from COVID-19, too.
If your school asks you to wear a mask, wear it and keep it on!
It can feel weird to wear a mask at school. But wearing a mask can keep you, your teacher, and your classmates from getting sick.
Think of it as your superhero mask. When you wear it, you are helping to keep others safe and healthy!
COVID-19 won’t last forever. But no one is sure how long it will last.
If we all follow the rules and work together, we can help each other stay healthy.
And we may be helping to make it go away sooner.
You have the power to keep your teachers, your classmates, and others safe and healthy.
It’s what superheroes do!
