Six R's for Less Stress Virtual Learning- A Message from Know!

Many things have changed since Ohio's State Governor made the decision to close school doors in February of this year due to the COVID-19 disease. We adapted for our last quarter of the 2019-2020 school year and hoped that our students would return to the building in the new year. Instead our students have been thrust into a situation that continues to change daily as we watch the numbers rise and fall. With the decision to start the year virtual there is an added level of uncertainty among our students and their parents having an impact on the academic, mental and physical well being of our students.In this article Know! shares the six R's to less stress as we all take on virtual learning.

Know! an online resource for parents, "gives parents and caregivers of middle and high school- age kids the education, tools, strategies, and empowerment they need to raise children who are alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free." We will be sharing some of their content in hopes that it can help our parents start up important conversations with their child.
