Distance Learning Resources

As thousands of families are now learning from and working from home, things have changed in all of our daily lives. California State PTA always prioritizes the health and safety of our children, families and communities.

Here are a few things to keep in mind during this time of social distancing. Remember, children take their cues from the adults around them, so it is important to remain calm and talk to children about what is going on in an age appropriate way. Children become anxious when the adults around them are anxious. Experts say children feel better when they have some control over what is going on.  

Spending some time outside running, walking or bike riding is a good way to get fresh air. 

Most school districts are providing free meals for children. Check your school/school district website for information on how to pick up the meals. There are also some classes and lessons online.

Here are some other resources that are fun and helpful. (Please note that these links take you to websites that are neither run by nor endorsed by California State PTA.)
