    Emotional Security: A Moral Imperative

    It’s hard for students to learn if they don’t feel known and protected. Security is equally about emotional as much as physical safety. In these days of school insecurity, we need to address the needs of the whole child. This includes balancing the curriculum with both academic and social-emotional learning to teach students to recognize and control their emotions as well as to feel empathy for others. This important curricular work benefits all students, but especially those with identified early trauma who may end up disrupting classrooms and, sometimes, sadly become assailants.
  7. Introduction COVID-19 will be with us for the foreseeable future and its impact on international schools will continue. The virus itself is evolving, the science related to the virus, to vaccines, and to testing is also evolving. Although the pandemic is global, mitigation of the impact of the virus needs to be managed at a school and local level. A current understanding of the situation with the virus will enable schools to implement up to date mitigation strategies. These strategies should incorporate vaccinations, screening, process and procedures as well as communications.

No one is sure how that environment may look, but one thing is for certain, schools will once again face the same kinds of threats and hazards they have always encountered. To overcome these threats, hazards and other disruptions, schools will need to be prepared with an emergency action plan, or better yet, a robust Emergency Planning Management (emergency preparedness) program.

  22. Hi, schools are certainly looking more and more at technology solutions. Health records can be sensitive, so what schools track and how is very much an issue in Europe and other countries. Other things they are doing are tools to support reporting of temperature checks, self screens at home, tracking apps for school bus service to know who was on which bus when in case of a suspected or confirmed exposure and communication tools. We will be hosting a Round Table session in a couple of weeks on this topic, you are welcome to join. Details will be published later in the week. Kevin
  23. It is a commonly known fact that the school authorities are extra cautious about the health of their students after the outbreak of COVID-19. The school management has been researching different tactics to improve the health of their students. Most of the schools have started collecting students' medical history to get a clear picture of students' overall health. School Health Services software are available to ease frontline health workers' jobs, including school nurses. What all steps have your school taken to improve the health management of the students? Please share!
