We know that parents are doing so much during our nation's safe-at-home response to COVID-19. This may mean that you and other members of your family are serving in different and possibly unexpected roles. For many parents, you are now one of your child's many teachers. The following is a list of ideas that you might consider to help your student succeed with the distance learning enrichment provided by Mustang Public Schools.
1. If you have Internet connection and technology available in your home, help your student connect with their teachers digitally via Google Classroom.
2. Talk with your student about digital citizenship. The communication via email and video may be new for some students, and they may need to talk about the importance of online etiquette.
3. If possible, help your student create a schedule to complete their work at home.
4. Additionally, help your student create a work space to complete their work at home. This may be a desk, dining room table, coffee table, etc. Working in a designated work space may help your child shift their focus onto the task at hand and be more productive in their work.
We know that this is a very difficult time for many families. Please know that your child's teachers are here to support them and to offer encouragement and educational support to parents as well.
