During COVID-19 CHILD USA is asking “What About the Children?”  Many children have lost the safety nets that schools provided them every day.  That safety net includes food from free and reduced price lunches, supervision from mandated reporters, mental health resources, and many more.  CHILD USA has put together resources for teachers to use to check in with their students during distance learning to help assess their safety and well-being.

CHILD USA shouts out Dr. Lee for embracing reopening schools with humor and good spirit!
