MONROE, CT — Parents with concerns over their children’s schooling amid the COVID-19 pandemic will have an opportunity to listen to one of the town’s top medical experts on the topic and ask questions during a Monroe Special Education Parent Teacher Association meeting on Thursday, Dec. 3.
Dr. Nimrod Dayan, who specializes in pediatric infectious disease and serves as a medical advisor for Monroe public schools, will be the guest speaker at the event, to be held virtually via Zoom from 7 to 8 p.m.
Nancy Sorge, president of Monroe SEPTA, said all families are invited to attend.
“We’re trying to pull the community together,” she said. “This is for all the kids. It’s for anybody to ask questions.”
In addition to Dr. Dayan, of Pediatric Healthcare Associates, Sorge said Superintendent of Schools Joseph Kobza will be a guest.
“This is important for our town,” Sorge said. “We’re working with the Board of Education and collaborating with them.”
Dr. Dayan will talk about symptoms and prevention of COVID in children. He recently spoke at a Board of Education meeting, where he expressed his belief that kids are probably safer at school than at home.
