We are asking rural communities to share how COVID-19 is impacting them and how teachers and teacher-leaders are adapting in the face of nationwide school closures. Read below for a great story from Timothy Smith of Princeton, Illinois. You can share yours here: https://buff.ly/3d7hWUe
"Our district is continuing to offer breakfast and lunch to any and all students during the closure. Bus delivery of the food is available at the request of the recipient. Otherwise, designated pick up locations are the school building the student attends. (Food can be picked up for all children at one site if the family has students in multiple buildings). Teachers are currently working remotely to prepare alternative learning instruction in the event the school closure is extended. Our spring break is the week of March 23rd, so no alternative instruction is planned for that week. The "Buddy Bags" program, which provides food for students over breaks will cover the week of spring break."
