TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — In an email addressed to parents Wednesday, Leon County Schools Superintendant Rocky Hanna launched a wellness campaign that aims to have a safe restart to the school year when students return from winter break on Jan. 5.

While the letter stressed that everyone in the LCS community, such as students, parents and teachers, should enjoy their winter break, the focal point was the Wellness Wonderland Health Tips book and Holiday Health guide attached in the email.

"We need your support to make sure our school communities, district offices and our community-at-large are doing everything they can to prevent the spread of COVID-19 during the winter break," the email read. "We hope that this information will remind everyone that whether it is the start of a new year or the start of each day, a Safe Start begins with all of us."

The holiday health guide attached in the email included tips regarding travel, masks, gatherings, and is available by clicking here.

The colorful book, "Wellness Wonderland Health Tips," gave tips with more illustrations than the holiday health guide and touched on exercise, nutrition, sleep, and more mental health advice in addition to COVID-19 prevention tips. The children's book is available by clicking here.

The second nine weeks resumes when students return to school on Jan. 5, with the new educational plan beginning on Jan. 20 along with the third nine weeks.
