Virtual Learning Tips
Self-Care is always important, but during this time it is vital for parents & students alike. This idea was shared with me & is a fun way to think about Self Care:
Find Time each week to…
Play – do something you enjoy just for the fun of it (that doesn’t involve screens!)
Rest - take time to relax and recharge
Socialize - connecting with friends & family is important for all of us! (even virtually)

Setting Up for Success While At Home Together:
- Stick to a consistent routine daily. Set expectations about getting up, getting dressed, and eating breakfast.
- Create a schedule for each day with your children to break up the time. Include time for learning, playing, physical exercise, and emotional and mental health activities. All family members can be soothed by a predictable schedule, though there’s no need for a rigid agenda.
- Put a limit on social media. Encourage staying connected to friends, but not obsessively reading news or discussing the virus online.
