I hope that you are all staying safe and well during this unusual time in our country. Remember, drink plenty of fluids, get the appropriate amount of rest, take time to get outside for fresh air and sunshine (to reduce stress/improve mindset)!

Remember to have earbuds daily as well as a charged Chromebook.
