  1. Updates

This is an unprecedented moment for kids, teachers, families, and schools. Re-opening our schools will involve decisions based on incomplete information that must be made in an environment that, at best, would be described as uncertain.

The Playworks School Reopening Workbook is a free resource and workbook aiming to bring a bit of ease to this transition.

This book offers guidance around how infusing play and playfulness into the process can help, and gives you practical tools to try it on.

The workbook is divided into five sections

In each of the first four sections we offer ideas, suggestions, and concrete activities to help you frame the approach your school takes to incorporating the guidance that is being offered by the CDC and your local health authorities.
