Parent Resources during COVID-19 closure

Parents I am sharing with you some resources that hopefully can aid you during the coming weeks that your children will be learning from home. I know your amazing teacher have been sending home work to be done, but there is still a lot of strain on your family.  Many of these are articles.  I feel everyone will get something different from them, but know you are not alone in trying to juggle home-schooling as well as working during this difficult time. Remember even on the most difficult of days you are doing AMAZING!

Always remember that I am available by e-mail if anything arises and I will do my absolute best to assist, e-mail me at ashley.schmidt@k12.sd.us
