The Healthy Habits Safety Pledge includes safety steps for students whether they are virtual or face-to-face. Incorporating healthy practices daily, such as wearing masks, washing hands, social distancing and being kind (both in person and online). These practices can become healthy habits as schools continue to strive for academic excellence and provide a safer place to learn.

Frequently,  I'll wash my hands,  which keep them clean, that's my plan.

I'll be extra kind everyplace, virtual school and face-to-face.
I'll consider others as I learn, everyone deserves their turn.
