COVID-19 and the Christian School: Key Understandings and Correcting Misconceptions

Plenary Session | Aug 17 - 11:00am

What exactly is a novel coronavirus and why are we shutting down schools and businesses to fight it? The human immune system has several branches that fight diseases, from the B cells that make antibodies to the T cells that search for viruses. Recent studies have shown how immunity to the novel coronavirus develops, opening the door to life-saving treatments or vaccines. As Christians and teachers, we can approach these findings and predictions with humility, faith, and hope as we look to the future. As we prepare for a complex school year with possible distancing and cohorting restrictions, this plenary session for all educators will deepen your own understanding of COVID-19 and prepare you to speak with your students and families about the pandemic with both wisdom and clarity.
