​Physical Restraint and Seclusion and COVID-19
With the return to in-person instruction, it is of the utmost importance to address the safety of both our students and staff in schools.  In the era of COVID-19, ​vendors providing training have been very innovative in mitigating COVID-19 risks while meeting the simulated experience requirement. Should you have further questions or need additional assistance, please feel free to contact Jarrod Slone using the information at the bottom of this ​page.
