Re-Focus 2019-20

THANK YOU for all of your hard work in the last couple of weeks. We know that during this challenging time, you have been asked to make changes and learn new things while focusing on working with students and families in a very short time. It has not been easy, but you have preserved! Be proud of everything you are accomplishing! You are rock stars! You have managed to completely change how education is delivered and ensure kids are getting what they need in a matter of days.

The communication, collaboration, and sharing of resources that has happened and continues to take place has been very encouraging. The coronavirus has changed how we work, learn, and play. It has changed all of our lives, professionally and personally. We are in this together, and together we will see it through. Please check out some of the resources below and share others you have found. We appreciate all of your efforts!
