A Season of Giving

As 2020 comes to a close, we feel a sense of relief. This year has been action packed and full of surprise twists that we never could have anticipated. We have learned to pivot and balance. We have all learned new ways to perform our essential functions and had to grow in ways we did not imagine. Our teachers and students have become online educators and learners and our school buildings have become hubs for virtual learning. Students have persevered through this pandemic by giving themselves and their families the gift that keeps on giving, a plan for the future.

Resources at Your Fingertips

With all chaos that our new normal brings, it is easy to feel overwhelmed when you need help. There are a few online resources that can help. The two search engines I have used to narrow down resources are 211 and findhelp.org. Both sites offer a significant amount of links and information based on the zip code you enter. They are categorized to help you find the information you need quickly. Both sites offer the ability to choose your language, to better serve you.
