Parent Resource Page for e-schooling

Please note: This page is in NO way intended to replace what we have been doing, or will continue to do, as a class, on Zoom, via Skype, or on the phone.  We will continue to do those things after Spring Break is over, next week (we are currently on 'soft closure' mandated by the state of Idaho until 'at least April 20').  But, even though it's Spring Break, you are all on my mind!! And there are SO many resources out there, I simply want to get started sharing them with you! This is just the tip of the TIP of the iceburg!!   I will add to this daily, probably multiple times per day.  Eventually, I will try to get them organized by topic or at least color coded.  But for now, explore and enjoy! (if you find some cool website and want to share it with me, send it to me in an e-mail)  ENJOY!! "See" you all on Monday, on Zoom!!
