The coronavirus epidemic has caused children and young adults in the United States to adapt to distance learning. This is a great means of reducing the virus, but it has been a hardship for parents as they move into a kindergarten function while balancing work and taking on the tasks of a teacher. You can also keep students connected by remotly in campus via online.

Currently, the new school year has started and many of the school districts have gone in person and some are combining a mix of personal and distance learning. This is certainly a challenge, however you are certainly not alone. Parents, teachers, and students will also face the same challenges.
Let's establish your learning space at home
- Build a designated learning space using technology from which your child can connect. Wherever you choose to set up the learning room – the dining room table, the desk in your bedroom, or the living room – make sure it is clutter-free and your child understands that it is their own 'learning space' so that may have a sense of ownership of this area.
- Configure your own technology. Make sure your Wi-Fi in your children's learning distance is properly linked and compatible with all your connected devices. If you don't have Wi-Fi, talk to your school district for a solution.
Invite interactions with family and friends and try to maximize those bonds. Try socially distanced play dates in outside places. This type of interaction, even for parents, is very important.
