To help parents with new tools and resources as they adapt to at-home and remote education systems this fall, the Multnomah County Library in Portland has launched a fresh newsletter.
With many schools shifting to a remote-optional teaching system for the Fall semester, and others launching the new year of classes with restricted in-person teaching, parents will once again have a portion or majority of the classroom in their own homes.
Though Oregon has seen a drop in coronavirus cases over the course of the last month, new waves of spreading are expected, affecting how everyone will approach the potential reopening of businesses and schools.
“Once per month, we will send you resources, tools, and information specifically designed for parents and youth. We aim to roll out the first edition in October 2020,” reads the MultCo Library newsletter sign-up page.

The newsletter is segmented into particular grade scales, offering different tips, tools, and resources for parents of children under the age of three, preschoolers, kids from kindergarten to grade two, from grades three to five, six to eight, and nine through 12.
Parents can sign up for the first edition of the newsletter now, at the Multnomah County Library website.
