MRH Response to COVID-19

Coping with COVID-19; Family Resources
We all recognize that for many of our families, this pandemic crisis is making a difficult home situation even worse. As part of a regional response, there has been a coordinated effort by area school districts to simplify the search for resources for those in need. Please click on this link Family Resources Flier
Student Success Strategies for Virtual Learning
- Make learning time a phone-free zone. Have students leave their phone in the other room and allow for breaks to let them check what's going on.
- Create a dedicated space for school work. Keep that area free from distractions like TV's, pets, siblings, and conversations.
- Ease expectations. Even when you and your child have the best of intentions, it's still so easy to lose focus. Be gentle with them and with you, and help them learn how to shift back on-task when something happens.
- Stick with routine. Either way, having a routine -- when learning happens, break times, lunch, etc. -- can make it easier to transition into and out of the school day and keep distractions at bay.
- Getting up at the same time each day
- Establishing working hours
- Following a routine, like getting dressed, eating breakfast, and using social media for a few minutes on the couch before moving into your dedicated learning space
- Scheduling in breaks, lunch, and end times (build in time for exercise and physically moving)
- Write down assignments, stick to deadlines, communicate with teachers when you are missing an assignments
Recommended Actions at Home
Wash your hands and have your kids wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds frequently throughout the day.
Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Do not come to school if you have flu-like symptoms (elevated temperature, cough, shortness of breath).
Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces in your home frequently.
If you are unsure whether your contact information is up to date in MRH systems, contact your school office. This is necessary to receive timely messages via email, texts, mail, and phone calls.
