A message from your HSA

First, a HUGE THANK YOU to our school faculty.  Our incredible teachers are still there for our children (and parents!).  Teaching in this new environment while being home with their families can't be easy.  Thank you to our school counselors for sending helpful tips for organization, words of support and links for fun things to do.  To our superintendent and principals, thank you for keeping us informed and for making the difficult decisions to keep us healthy.  We can't imagine all the work you're doing behind the scenes and we appreciate you.

It's been a long, challenging and scary week for all of us.  Online schooling, social distancing, germ fighting, grocery stockpiling, economic worry....  It can be too much.  The best thing we can do is stay positive and not fall down the rabbit hole of worry.  We have to keep it together for those little ones looking to us in this time of confusion.  Below are a few links to some fun ideas to help us through.

Fun, interesting stuff:
