From the Head of School:
We Recognize the Home Learning Challenge
Parents, we recognize that HOME learning with your children is a challenging new reality for all of us, but it is especially challenging for you as parents. We are so grateful for your partnership and want to provide all the support we can during this difficult time. With that in mind, we wanted to share with you a presentation from  The Enrollment Management Association  that we believe can provide support and guidance to you.

Webinar Presentation:
Navigating Parenting and Learning in a Remote Environment .


Featured Topics
* Developing screen time rules and creating balance
* Staying current without becoming overwhelmed
* Modeling healthy habits and boundaries
* Mentoring children on technology and social media
* Dealing with social isolation, anxiety, and depression

Families may view the webinar for free by clicking on  this LINK  and registering, which will take them directly to the presentation.

Remote Learning 2.0
Synchronous online sessions for most classes began on Monday. A new  Schedules Page  has been added to the Remote Learning Website. On that page, Middle and Upper School students can see the remote learning schedule with links to join each class. You will also see a link to a Parent version of the schedule, but for security reasons there are no links on that version. We are excited about this new blended approach to remote learning and look forward to a continued partnership with all members of the Roycemore community. Go Griffins!
