Being a parent under normal circumstances can be difficult, so when you throw a global pandemic into the mix—well, things get that much harder. With the presence of COVID-19, parents schedules and plans have gone out the window and have been replaced with uncertainty and unrest. To help parents find coping mechanisms and community with one another during this time, The Ellis School is offering a free virtual webinar series for families, Pandemic Parenting: Navigating Your New Normal. The sessions will include brief presentations and allow time questions and dialogue.
Keeping Your Cool: Family Health and Wellness During an Unusual Summer
When you’re balancing work, childcare, and household duties, it can be easy for self-care and mindfulness to be the first things cut from your to-do list.

So how can you and your family make space for self-care this summer?

Ready for the New Normal: How to Prepare for the Coming School Year
What will school look like this fall? Will we have to continue distance learning from home or will children be able to resume in-person classes? If students are able to return in-person, what types of health and safety changes will be made to protect families? For parents, there are so many questions and so few answers about what the future holds.
Learn more about the options school administrators are weighing for the future during a live webinar, Ready for the New Normal, How to Prepare for the Coming School Year, with Macon Finley, Head of The Ellis School, on Thursday, June 25 at 5:30 p.m.
While there is still much that is uncertain about school in the fall, with over 20 years of experience in education, Macon will provide parents with more information about the decision making processes and possibilities for how school can resume in the 2020–2021 academic year.
