Coronavirus and Moving Forward this Fall

In roughly two-months’ time, schools will reopen. The big questions on every parents’ mind are, “What in the world will that look like?” Will it be safe with the coronavirus?”

Depending on your state or city or school, there will be various regulations regarding the enforcement of sanitation, masks, temperature checks, hand-washing, and social distancing.
