Despite pandemic restrictions beginning to lift, going back to school doesn’t necessarily mean back to normal. Learn strategies to support parents in your workforce as they prepare for a school year full of uncertainty.
The COVID-19 pandemic upended the lives of everyone across the globe, including parents and school-aged children. Now, as pandemic restrictions begin to lift across the U.S., most schools are preparing to welcome students for in-person learning. However, this year’s back to school doesn’t necessarily mean back to normal for working parents. This school year still includes a variety of challenges, including an often dizzying maze of information about COVID guidelines from local governments/districts, and schools. At the same time, these parents are trying to support their children’s mental health as they anticipate a new school year full of uncertainty.
As the 2021-2022 school year begins, your employees with school-aged children may need greater support.
