School campuses are going to be quiet places at least through April 10.
With schools closed across the state, school districts are now asking parents to step in and do their best to homeschool kids.
It's not something most parents have prepared to do, but districts are offering up whatever resources they can while schools remain shut down at least through April 10—and potentially longer, given that cases of COVID-19 are still rising across the state.
If you're looking for some lesson plans, here are some online resources:
