Across the country, school districts are developing reopening plans for the upcoming school year. And, while these plans vary from district to district, there is one message we want all local leaders and administrators to hear loud and clear:
Health and physical education is essential for students’ physical, mental and social-emotional health — and now, more than ever, it’s vital to prioritize students’ health and well-being.
Please join us tomorrow, July 16th, for our Online (Backyard) Advocacy Day. This is your chance to voice your views to local representatives and ensure that health and physical education stays at the forefront of back to school planning.
