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.
