What to do when the School and Library are Closed

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So, our schools and library are closed, but that doesn't mean you need to stop reading to your child!  There are so many resources available today.  Make sure you also check all of the resources Laura Hunter, principal, has offered in her letter from school.  You may be isolated, but you can still be entertained!  Check these out!  How to Keep Kids Reading
**Parents, if you need help with Google Classroom, please see this Guide.
 
All of these sites have been listed because they are offering their lessons, stories, and projects for free while are students are home during this pandemic.
