Dear Parents, 

We are doing our best to supply you with activities to do with your children at home.  We are also trying to find experiments or activities that require very few supplies or items you might already have around your home.  We understand that not everyone has the technology to allow you to print out materials or utilize all parts of this lesson.  If you would like materials for your child to continue his or her learning at home, please let your teacher know.  If you choose to request materials we would ask that you are prepared to assist your child with the completion of his or her work.  

Please note that this is an excellent time to work with your child on cooking, cleaning, organizing and other practical skills in the home.  Many of these projects require reading, and math or problems solving, which are very important skills.  

We hope that you are also encouraging your children to read.  The library is open at this time, and they have many excellent reading materials available.  If you are weary about going into public, Libby is a free library app that allows you to check out e-books, e-magazines, graphic novels and audio books with your library card.  While this does require technology, it allows you to check out reading material without worrying about losing them.  

We are here to support you!
