Parents who are used to sending your children to a physical school, whether the public school in your community or a local private school, you’ll love this! Luckily, the feedback that we’ve received is mostly positive about how school districts and private schools and local teachers are adjusting and pivoting to the new way of school.
From the first day that the Governor announced the extended break, there was an outpouring of resources on social media, most notably Facebook. At first, I thought this was awesome! Then as the resources kept coming and everyone was sharing, it quickly moved to, “WOW! This is overwhelming!”

THE SAFER AT HOME ORDER HAS BEEN ENDED AS OF MAY 13, 2020.

Do you feel overwhelmed?
Breathe. In. Out. Slowly.
Not to say to throw everything away that you have seen before this, but the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has partnered with Milwaukee PBS and PBS Wisconsin to create a plan to support all the in-home learning that has been going on since March 16.
The plan begins on March 30.
The Ultimage Wisconsin At-Home Education Plan
If you click or tap through to the Facebook post linked above, you’ll find all the details. To summarize, they are changing all the PBS programming to be educational quality to be used as a supplement to the distance learning.
You can see from the graphic that content aimed at grades preK-3 (my kids ages’) will be broadcast at the times in light blue Middle school aged students can find content where there is the middle shade of blus, leaving the dark blue for content aimed at high schoolers.
This transition to distance learning, has been a learning curve for most if not all parties: districts, schools, teachers, parents, and students. However, the outpouring of support to help parents and students still have access to educational tools has been nothing short of amazing!
This is obviously via television or online streaming, so if you were a parent worried about your child and the amount of screen time they are receiving, here’s a great way to make that screen time educational! Access these resources via online streaming HERE.
