What’s New Fall 2021

Back to School 🍎

It’s that time again, summer is winding down and we will be getting ready to send our children back to school again soon. Transitioning back to school can look different based on the needs of your child and your family. Maybe your child is attending full day, in-person instruction, maybe they are staying home and receiving virtual instruction, maybe they are attending in-person a few days per week and at home the other days (commonly referred to as a “hybrid” model), or maybe you homeschool them? Whatever school looks like for your child, and however you define success, we have apps that are sure to help you and your family this fall.
