Are your schools on lockdown while coronavirus wreaks it's havoc? You've got this!

We’ve been a homeschool family since 1994. Five of our six kids have already graduated and gone on to college and adulthood. Only our baby—who is now 16—remains. He’s technically a sophomore, but will graduate a year early because by then he’ll already be done with calculus, biology, chemistry, and physics, and far more social studies and language arts than required. He’ll also be done with a coding bootcamp and a filmmaker course. So he'll be more than ready to move on into his next phase.

If you’re here, you are probably a public or private school family who has suddenly found yourself—against your will—thrust into having a greater level of education responsibility than you are accustomed to and you’re wondering what to do. Let me give you a few ideas that hopefully will help!

If you have specific questions, leave them in the comments. I’m happy to help and to get input from other homeschoolers! Good luck out there!
