Statement by the Press Secretary Regarding the Safe Reopening of America's Schools
President Donald J. Trump firmly believes that educating our Nation's children is a top priority. He has continually advocated for schools to safely reopen this fall to ensure our Nation's children receive the best education and care. As the data shows, children are at an extremely low risk for serious illness or death from the coronavirus, far less than adults and even less than from seasonal influenza.

Today, the Trump Administration put forth recommendations to guide schools toward a pathway of safe reopening while empowering families to make the best decisions for their children. Under President Trump's leadership, children come first.
