Are you feeling like you and your child are missing out on activities with other kids and families?  
Are you wanting to explore other options for school this year? 
Are you also worried about you and your family getting sick?  

Forming a pod with other families might help.  

A pod is a small number of families who are committed to each other’s health and well-being, agree to shared rules and practices, and spend time together while physically isolating from the rest of the world. Pods can also be a mode of education for your children. 

This provides information on what pods are, how they work, and what to consider when forming them. After this class you will be able to: 

  • Apply strategies to identify those families with whom you could form a pod 
  • Recognize key issues you may want to consider when approaching another family 
  • Identify approaches to build shared understanding and trust once you agree to form a pod 
  • Consider modes of education based on pods
