During this time of sudden and extended school closures, we understand that many families may be facing the challenge of helping their children continue their learning at home. As with other schools in our community, the school in our hospital is closed to students but our team of Washington State certified educators are hard at work developing tips, resources and learning ideas. Over the coming days and weeks, we will add to this page with resources our team has reviewed for educational and developmental suitability.
