Back-to-School Toolkit

Highmark is here to help you make the transition as safe and smooth as possible. Whether you’re fully back in the classroom or following a hybrid model of in-person and virtual learning, we’ve compiled the following resources to guide you along the way.
Remember, Highmark isn't here to set the rules or provide specific advice for your schools. We just want to lend a hand by providing helpful insights and resources. Follow your state and district guidelines closely.

School signage

To reinforce important health and safety messages to your students, hang the signage below throughout your buildings. These clean, simple posters were developed for students of all ages. Simply click on the sign name to automatically download.

Teacher's guide

Your staff is taking on additional lesson plans this year — like teaching safety protocols and explaining why sharing is no longer "in." We've compiled a few talking points and other creative suggestions to aid in these conversations. Download the guide and share it with faculty as they manage new obstacles this school year.
