Students and Teachers Keep Busy During Closures

Our Gulf Coast- area public schools have been diligently working to quickly get students the tools they need for successful online learning.  Community volunteers and school staff have come together to make sure students are safely accessing devices and at-home learning packets, as well as healthy breakfasts and lunches.  Teachers and administrators are lifting students’ spirits with events like teacher parades and social media learning!  It is so inspiring to see how our school districts and community are taking care of each other when it is most needed!
