Kaweah Delta is partnering with the Visalia Unified School District to answer children’s questions about COVID-19 and related education issues.
The Kids Town Hall focused on COVID-19 will take place on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. Children can learn why they are working remotely, why they must wear masks and more.
The event’s guest speakers will include VUSD Superintendent Tamara Ravalin and Keri Noeske, Kaweah Delta’s chief nursing officer.
Students from throughout Tulare County can submit their questions to [email protected].
The event will be live-streamed on Kaweah Delta’s social media channels, as well as through an online webinar and is free. The event is intended for kids, but parents are encouraged to listen in so they can be prepared to discuss these questions/answers with their children.
“Young people have had to bear so much this year, losing out not just on school but from all that goes with it – friends, sports, events, and so much more,” said Deborah Volosin, director of Kaweah Delta’s community engagement department. “We want to give them a chance to ask questions, so they can feel like they have a little more understanding, and a little more control, during this challenging time to be a kid.”
Students can register for the town hall at kaweahdelta.org/students or view the event through Kaweah Delta’s social media pages at facebook.com/kaweahdelta and @kaweahdelta on Instagram.
