The Safe and Healthy School Bureau (SHSB) understands that by supporting student health, we aSHSB_Yucca.Health.Modelre increasing students’ potential to succeed academically. Student health and well-being are essential to learning. We can all do our part to create a safe and healthy school environment.

With the recent school closures due to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), we are sharing some of our classroom resources to help teachers, parents, and kids at home. The following resources have been compiled by staff from the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED), Safe & Healthy Schools Bureau, and are intended to help identify online resources to help students stay active and choose nutritious food options during the ongoing schools closures. The list also includes resources for online classroom resources for physical and health education. Online Physical and Health Education Resources

Alcohol Portal: Effects of Drinking Alcohol on Your Health. While most people know that drinking too much alcohol can lead to injuries and deaths in car crashes, many people do not know that drinking too much alcohol also can increase the chances of cancer, suicide, unintended pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections, and other negative health outcomes. CDC provides for the common defense of the country and, as such, has a significant role in fighting excessive alcohol use through the use of our science, tracking, and service to the countless Americans and their families affected by drinking too much.

*AMENDMENT: Children under 18 months with 2 polio vaccines should be allowed to attend child care centers and pre-schools. The New Mexico Childcare/Pre-school/School Entry Immunization Requirements for 2018-19 have an inconsistency with the ACIP Childhood Immunization Schedule. Most infants receive the third dose of polio vaccine at their 6-month visit; however, some providers administer the third dose as late as 18 months. The ACIP schedule allows for the third dose to be given between 6 and 18 months of age. Therefore, children 6 to 18 months must have 2 doses of polio vaccine, not 3 as stated on the New Mexico Immunization Requirements

Wallace Foundation Find Out How to Build Social and Emotional Learning Skills; Compare Leading SEL Programs

Second Step Second Step is a program rooted in social-emotional learning (SEL) that helps transform schools into supportive, successful learning environments uniquely equipped to help children thrive.

Why Try Imagine if resilience was a learned trait – one that could be developed and increased by both teachers and students alike, allowing everyone in a school environment to access inner motivation in and beyond the classroom. Research has shown that resilience can be fostered and increased in adolescents – that they can learn skills to help them adapt and even thrive amidst tremendous challenges. WhyTry programs help you deliver these skills using an engaging, multisensory approach, which will transform your classroom or school climate and completely change the way your students view adversity. Multiple third-party studies have proven that our approach to resilience education works.

The Choose Love Enrichment ProgramTM is a no cost Pre-K through 12th grade social and emotional learning program that teaches educators and their students how to choose love in any circumstance and helps them become connected, resilient and empowered individuals.
