Thank you for joining us for Paul’s weekly update.
- Emotional health and well-being (us/students/families) should be a top priority.
- In spite of Zoom fatigue, two different types of virtual connection opportunities are available on the work-at-home site:
- Don’t forget to check on answers to Frequently Asked Questions and share your questions, concerns, ideas, and good news on the Your Voice form.

- Learn at Home website for families/educators
- Emergency Childcare Planning on hold (low demand), but still standing ready.

- Stay connected and support each other in new ways (including connecting with people we don’t generally work with).
- Take care of yourselves and each other.
