Tips when Staying at Home

Children need routine - Try to keep a regular bedtime and wake time. Set aside time for reading, chores, being outside.

Keep up to date - Check the Tekoa School District website and Facebook page daily. Use the links at top of page for state and national information on COVID-19.

Take time together - Enjoy our spring weather outside. Be sure to keep social distance if leaving when you are outside. Play a game, read a book together, create a fort, cook a new recipe.

And Rest - Relax your body often by doing things that work for you-take deep breaths, stretch, meditate or pray, or engage in activities you enjoy. Pace yourself between stressful activities, and do something fun after a hard task. Talk about your experiences and feelings to loved ones and friends, if you find it helpful.
If you or your loved ones experience symptoms of extreme stress - such as trouble sleeping, problems with eating too much or too little, inability to carry out routine daily activities, or using drugs or alcohol to cope - speak to a health care provider or call one of the hotlines below:
