Hello parents, teachers and students!

Have you adjusted to working or having lessons at home? I know I haven’t. But what a brave new world we live in.

We know you’ve been following the latest regarding the novel coronavirus and the local “Stay Home, Work Safe” order.

But, with KSAT Kids, we want to provide you, your family and classmates with both relevant content to inform you during school closures, as well as educational content to help you stay engaged.

On our website, we have a map where you can find free school meals during the closures. We also have the latest regarding school cancellations.

Looking for something to do with the children while stuck at home? Don’t worry, KSAT Kids has got you covered.

Our team of meteorologists are constantly creating content designed to captivate kids and parents, alike. In this week’s newsletter, you can learn how to make a homemade thermometer, or take a fun weather quiz.

Keep scrolling to find resources that can help to keep children both active and engaged, or to see our student spotlight about a teen who had her foreign exchange program come to a swift end.
