My School is Closed Social Narrative
My school is closed right now. This was not planned. This means I can’t go to school today.
My school may be closed for 1 day, or it may be closed for many days. I may not know how long my school will be closed for. This is okay.
When my parents or my teachers know how long my school will be closed, they will tell me.
It is okay to have big emotions about my school being closed. I may feel happy that we have a break. I may feel sad that I can’t see or play with my friends.
I also may feel worried about my schedule or when I can return to school. I also may feel angry if I can’t see my friends or say goodbye before the closure. This is normal. Many people feel emotions just like me when my school is closed.
If I have concerns or questions, I can ask my family. I can talk to them about my feelings.
Even though I can’t go to my school building right now, I still need to keep learning at home. This is okay.
I will be doing school at home during this time. This is okay, and may even feel exciting!
Learning at home will be different, but my parents will help find a routine that helps me to do my best.
The change from learning at school to learning at home is a big change for me and my family. This is okay.
I will do my best to be patient and follow a new routine. It may be hard at first. That is okay.
This is only for now. This can be exciting and overwhelming. I will return to school, but I will be okay at home working with my family until my school is open.
