Staying at home does not mean you are alone. Distance learning is as much about continuing education as it is about remaining connected. These are extraordinary times, but we are in it together. Trust we are going to be together again.
Schools offer a stable and equal safe haven to all students. School free meals for eligible students are available as needed. Some of us may not have stability within our immediate family and home. Job loss, money struggles can feel scary. Family discord can make home feel sad or unsafe.
Do not accept isolation. Reach out and ask for help if you need it.
