True North Tips
A place for parents to find great resources and ideas for quick everyday use
Everyone agrees that in-person learning is best for most kids. Being in school provides not only the best academic learning opportunities but is essential for the social-emotional development of all children. In addition, some kids depend on school for meals and other important services. For many parents having kids at home is an economic stressor which makes it impossible for them to go to work or even work at home. In California, where I live, most schools have started with distance learning as mandated by the governor. As the counties in my area see cases decreasing, schools are making plans to reopen. While all parents have the option to continue with distance learning, many are faced with the decision of whether or not to let their child return in person. We all want our kids to go back to school, but we all want them to be safe too. It feels like an impossible decision. Here are 8 questions to ask yourself while you weigh the pros and cons:
Remember to breathe, stay grounded and trust that you know what is best for your child and your family.

My daughter went back to school for only 2 weeks on a hybrid program. I saw how excited she was to have a sense of normalcy again. The school followed all the protocols for safety and I felt the benefits outweighed the risks. Unfortunately, we are now back to fully remote, not because of Covid numbers increasing, but for lack of attendance. Kids opted into the hybrid, but weren't actually showing up? We are very disappointed that for the short-term she will not even have the opportunity to be in school. For our family, it feels like a terrible loss. Other families seem to be more resigned with remote learning.
