Arlington children and adolescents have faced the effects of school closures for nearly a year now. In addition to switching to virtual learning, social and out-of-home activities have been canceled or reduced significantly. As a result, many students have experienced an increase in stress and reduction in support when outside of the classroom setting. Yet others report only being mildly affected and seem to have adapted well.
What have we learned about what is needed to support students during the pandemic? What long-term effects might this “learning loss” have on children and families? How should Arlington Public Schools and the broader community respond to these challenges?
