Resources for Parents and Teens during quarantine

Being a teenager during this time of social and physical distancing is developmentally difficult.

Also, if you are not on my Remind: you’ve missed a significant number of postings about exams (AP, FSA ELA, and EOCs) as well as the district’s rollout of distance learning, which starts for students on March 31st, with electronics distribution at school on 3/30 for students with no other access to online learning.
