Over the past several months, we all have experienced a disruption to our sense of security, structure, and routine as school physically closed and transitioned to virtual learning environments because of the COVID-19 pandemic. During these uncertain times, our communities also have been impacted by racial and social unrest that has added an additional layer of stress to the overall situation that school communities are attempting to navigate. This added stress is relates to concern on how to balance being a parent or caregiver with helping further the education of their children, how to have difficult conversations about these uncertain times, and how address emotions in their children while they are also experiencing their own strong emotions. The PA Department of Education has posted resources to assist parents navigate these issues -- addressing emotions, moving forward with education for their children, and providing resources and ideas to promote a family balance while education is occurring in the home.
