Are Your Students Behind on Vaccines?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, childhood and adolescent vaccination rates in the United States have declined: As many as one in three students may lack vaccines such as MMR, hepatitis, meningitis, chickenpox and many more. LFA's new GetVaxFacts campaign explains how educators can encourage parents to schedule their children's lifesaving vaccinations. (photo courtesy of CDC)

Managing Covid-19 in Schools

June is #PrideMonth! Students who identify as LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning, intersex, asexual and allies) are bullied at much higher rates and the consequences are heartbreaking. Educators have opportunities each day to create safe and welcoming environments. Share My Lesson has free preK-12 resources and many recommendations for lessons and books to help support and celebrate #LGBTQ students.
