Preparing for a New School Year in the Age of COVID

These last six months have been unusual, to say the least. COVID-19 severely altered our daily lives, and while it is impossible to determine who was impacted the most, many people would agree that children experienced a uniquely difficult time. The sudden transition to distance learning, where they had less classes, less homework, and less structure, was jarring. Many students lost motivation and found it challenging to put forth effort.

There are several steps you can take to help ensure that your children are successful this school year.
