Please help your child get used to wearing a mask. We will be wearing masks in the room since it is nearly impossible to social distance in our classroom. A good way for your child to get ready for mask wearing at school is to have them wear a mask while they are watching their favorite TV show at home, keeping it on for as long as possible, building up to the whole 30 minutes. We will be providing mask breaks for the children and we will not be wearing masks when we are outside in the Outdoor Classroom, recess, meals, or during nap time. Please help me with this so it will be more comfortable our first days of school. If your child does better with a face shield practice that too and let me know. We can get creative with the shields to help the kids be motivated to use them.
