The makings of a school climate can be made into a nightmare in a matter of minutes, if you’re a parent of a child at a public school in Michigan.
Here’s how to avoid the worst, and stay safe.
The problem is, there’s no magic formula for dealing with it.
School climate is one of the top five causes of asthma attacks in America, and one of many factors that can lead to an asthma attack.
While there are many possible causes, it’s usually the school climate that comes in last.
The fact that school climate is a big deal is why it’s a top priority for public health officials and advocacy groups.
If your child is feeling sick, you can get them to the nearest emergency room as soon as possible.
The most common ways of getting there are by ambulance or by driving to a hospital.
You can also contact the school’s emergency hotline at 1-800-527-4536.
Stay alert: It’s a school year and kids aren’t getting home until next week, so you should still check on your child’s well-being during the school year.
Be aware: Students in public schools in Michigan are required to wear masks at all times, and teachers, administrators, and staff can be arrested if they break that rule.
It’s a tough road for many students to navigate, but they can be given support.
Schools often have peer counselors to talk with them and teachers and counselors can be present during class hours.
Make sure to check in with your school’s safety coordinator for any emergency alerts, and check your childs health status regularly to make sure your child has the correct medications, tests, and other treatment options available.
Don’t leave the door open: Schools can be incredibly busy, especially during the summer months.
Students and staff often work from home during school hours and often do homework before or during class.
If your child needs a ride home, try to find a safe location where they can get to their destination.
Be aware that many school closings happen during the day, so if you can’t make it to your destination on time, you might have to wait until school hours are back up.
Call your school immediately: You can call your local school emergency number to make a report about a child who has an asthma emergency.
Call 1-877-273-8255 or text TTY to 888.
