Sharing Our Strength

Updates & Information for Families During the Closure

Distance Learning!

Central Bucks teachers launched "virtual" classrooms filled with activities, projects, and more to help our students stay connected and keep their skills sharp during the closure. Students and families embraced the challenge with grace and enthusiasm, sharing feedback and helping their students navigate their new "home-based" classrooms.
