We just ended our second full week of school using our Alternative Learning plan. This upcoming week, with the novelty worn off and cabin fever setting in, I am sharing a daily parent resource. The Child Mind Institute (click on link here) is providing daily tips and tricks to support families during this time. Be well!

During the implementation of the Woodland Park School District's Alternative Learning Plan, the Child Study Team members and related service providers are available and will continue to support your child's educational needs. Therapists will be calling the home to check-in and answer any questions or concerns regarding the activities they developed for your child. Should you need to speak with your case manager, speech, occupational or physical therapist, please email them directly. During this period the team will be holding Annual Reviews, Reevaluation Planning meetings, and Eligibility meeting via conference calls.
Should you need anything, please feel free to contact me. I can be reached by email at email@example.com daily.
