We are trading in backpacks and uniforms for computers and pajamas! If you are attending Palm Beach County Public Schools at the end of the month, all students start school with virtual distant learning. Setting up your child for success is important. Here are some suggestions and a supply list to start the virtual year off right. Parents were given a small dose of virtual distant learning at the end of the school year with distance learning come back it might be time to create a more permanent setup.

Have a Designated Area for School Work

Creating a designated area means fewer distractions and getting into a “school mindset and mode” in that space. This can be a spare room or even a corner in their bedroom, living room etc;. The most important thing is to use that area only for school. Other considerations to include:

• Make sure this area is quiet or has a door that can be closed. This gives students privacy when they’re working, talking to their teachers or taking an exam and reduces distractions.

• Have space for a desk or a table near a power outlet.
