We are committed to supporting your efforts in creating a schedule, structure, and daily routine while children are at home. Our administrative team has carefully researched resources to assist your efforts and support the reinforcement and maintenance of previously learned skills to keep children engaged in the educational process while schools remain closed across Pennsylvania.
