I hope you have been enjoying your summer! The back-to-school transition can sometimes be an adjustment for families and that is especially true this year given the pandemic.
Connecticut Children’s just launched a Back to School Kit to help families navigate the new school year. Please feel free to share these resources with families in your community.
The Back to School Kit includes:
What to do When Your Child Doesn’t Want to Go Back to School
When Will a COVID-19 Vaccine Be Ready for Kids Under 12?
10 Steps to a Better Morning! Boost Your Child’s School Routine
And much more!

Did you know that HUSKY covers more than one-third of kids in our state? Last year alone, Connecticut Children’s cared for more than 99,000 children who rely on HUSKY, including 62% of the babies who received care in one of our Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs).
