First Thing’s First
THANK YOU to all the amazing teachers out there who are going above and beyond to keep parents in the loop and give us some direction on what and how to deal with this situation. I am constantly getting emails and Facebook messages from my son’s VPK teacher, and my 12-year-old daughter’s teacher is very responsive and willing to reply to emails. For that and so much more, THANK YOU!
As parents and educators join efforts to make this period as easy as possible for our kids, there has been a great response from online teaching sites and programs to help get us past this hurdle.
