Planning for School Closures

School closures can be a time for students to relax and catch up on any schoolwork they may have missed. It is also a time for families to spend time together.

Parents and guardians can help students make the most of school closures by:

  • Encouraging students to complete any assigned homework or projects.
  • Finding educational activities that students can do at home, such as reading or visiting a museum.
  • Planning fun family outings and activities.

By planning ahead, parents and guardians can help ensure that students have a productive and enjoyable time during school closures.
