Helping Young Children Wear Masks
According to the revised school reopening guidance issued on August 3rd by the New Jersey Department of Education, all children are required to wear masks in public school buildings, unless the child has a documented health issue. In addition, considerations are made for children who have identified special needs.
We know that this may be difficult for our youngest learners so we have found a few tips to help children with this task. We ask that families review and practice mask wearing with their children, prior to the start of the school year. Please see the tips and links to picture books below.
