Closure Survival

We know that this closure is creating some new situations for us all. Just as Latin’s students and teachers are working out Distance Learning, families are also adjusting and facing new challenges. Parents may need to work at home while also guiding teens on school work. Other parents might not be able to work from home, which presents its own stresses (“Just how many episodes did you stream today??”) We are sympathetic, at the  very least. We will post information here that might be useful in helping your family in this time of  e x t e n d e d  togetherness. Please email us if you have suggestions for what to do, articles, or anything else that could be useful to our community.

Stay healthy and keep learning!
