LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — It’s the first day back in class for CCSD students and parents and teachers are tackling pandemic-related challenges.

Monica spoke with John Etzell who is the executive director of Boys Town Nevada as he shared how you can help kids get acclimated to the “new normal.”

John Etzell and his wife are parents to three teenagers. He shared a few helpful tips that can help parents when it comes to managing the “new normal” in school.

  • Communication – Listen to what is going on in their world from their perspective
  • Flexibility – They are experiencing school during a pandemic for the first time
  • Routine – Set realistic goals and a schedule that allows your child to adjust

Etzell says he has a partnership with the Clark County School District and that the connection can help parents and teachers if they find themselves in a crisis with a child or student.
