• Hello Parents  

    Here are some great resources to tap into during this time of school closures.  I know you are getting resources from teachers, the district and other sources, I am sure it can be a little overwhelming.  These resources are more focused on support and recreation, along with ways to relieve stress.  These are a few of so many out there; I hope you find some of them helpful. I will continue posting resources here so please remember to check back.  Also, if you need to contact me during this school closure time, check out my contact page to reach me directly.
