Tips for Parents and Guardians To Support Remote Learning 

  • Establish a routine or schedule: During any big transition, consistency is key. Try to keep normal meal and bed times, and start learning when school typically starts each day.
  • Take time to check in with your child: If possible, pick a specific time each day to check in with your child. Questions you may want to ask include: What are you learning today? Are there materials you need? What did you enjoy about today? What was challenging?
  • Provide time for physical activity: Physical activity is important for everyone’s wellbeing. There are many resources with great ideas for physical activity, play and discovery
  • Stay updated on communications from your child’s teacher and school: School staff will provide virtual opportunities to engage and support students and families. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns.
