COVID-19 and Back-to-School Plans

Monday, August 10th, 7:00pm (EST)

This panel discussion was held via Zoom in the weeks before return-to-school. The purpose of this event was to share information with other parents with school-aged children as they decide on in-person or virtual learning options for the 2020-2021 school year.

We have posted here a summary of the questions received by parents, what was discussed in the panel presentation, and linked to a saved video of our live discussion.
