Parent & Family Engagement

Due to the necessary actions being taken to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we realize many families are facing difficulties during this uncertain time, including food insecurity, job loss, and concerns their children will fall behind in school due to school closures. When it comes to education during these challenging circumstances, families need access to information and learning ideas, which will further support student learning at home.

In addition, these uncertain times can cause anxiety and worry in children. The Department has assembled strategies and resources for educators and parents to support the emotional well-being of children during this time.Additional resources for families of English language learners are available.
