Message for Students from ODS Health Room
Oakhill Day School Parents,

How Do I Talk To My Child About COVID-19?
Click here for a great article that is very resourceful regarding talking to children. Monitor TV and social media.
Maintain a normal routine as much as possible.
Be honest and accurate.
Take time to talk and keep explanations age appropriate. Early childhood and elementary school children need brief, simple information that should balance facts with the reassurance that their schools and homes are safe and that adults are there to keep them healthy and to take care of them if they do get sick. While upper intermediate and middle school students are able to discuss the issue in a more adult like fashion.
