Sacramento Scene: Doing What Is Best For Kids
By: Matt Patton, CATA Executive Director

Our sympathies go out to the families and communities that have been impacted by the COVID-19 virus. The response to this virus has resulted in postponements, cancellations and a general feeling of uncertainty. The list of school closures, travel bans, field day cancellations and counties placed on “shelter in place” grows by the hour. As unnerving and difficult as these events are, we need to be mindful of the health and well-being of our families, students and communities. Times like these require that we ag teachers do something that does not come naturally: placing a priority on ourselves.
