Covid-19 Parent Resources

FRE Families,

I hope that you are all healthy and well. As news of COVID-19 continues to stream, I can't help but think about this experience from the eyes of our precious students. Many families are wondering how to discuss this in a way that will be reassuring and not make kids more worried than they already may be.
