Mandated Flu Awareness Posters for Schools
Pursuant to Section 613 of the New York State Public Health Law, all schools are now required to post flu educational material in plain view throughout the school building. You should print and post these fliers in places where students’ families can see them, such as drop-off entrances and exits. You can also email or backpack these fliers home to families. For questions, email email@example.com.
Wide Open Schools Family Resources
The Wide Open School website provides learning activities for students to complete independently at home, or with their families. Activities are available in all subjects and grades, and in all languages via Google Translate. Families can use the information to do the following:
- Access an overview of the units their children are studying throughout the year, in grades K-8; high school units will be added soon.
- Engage with their child on what is taught at school;
- Find support for learning at home, like tips for keeping children focused, as well as information about using online learning tools;
- Assist with conversations at parent-teacher conferences;
- Locate afterschool activities.
