School At Home Resource Guide

Your Guide to Local Resources During an Extended School Closing

By Marie Vandenberg, Publisher/Editor Macaroni Kid Clintonville, WI March 15, 2020

For many of us, we are navigating to a new normal.  We need to figure out how to educate our kids without much time to prepare.  For many of us, even trying to feed our kids is going to be an issue.  Many students are on the free/reduced lunch program.  Not everyone has reliable internet or computers at home.  This guide will be getting updated as more information becomes available, so hopefully, this helps you start figuring out a plan. If you know of anything that should be added, please don't hesitate to e-mail me at mariev@macaronikid.com or message me on our Facebook Page
