This week, both federal and state officials have urged citizens, businesses, and schools to consider how to prepare in advance of a potential threat from a nationwide spread of the coronavirus, including the possibility that schools may need to close temporarily. While school closings due to the coronavirus are not imminent, we are following the direction of the CDC to begin making preparations. To that end, Istation stands ready to provide resources available for schools and students at home.
Istation’s online home resources are available for schools using Istation for reading, math, and Spanish literacy. Istation’s home component includes resources for students and parents.
Students have access to hundreds of learning activities, including digital books, printable books, math games, and more. Students can use Istation outside the school on PCs, Macs, laptops, or tablet devices, including Android tablets, iPads, and Amazon Fires.
Parents have access to Istation’s Parent Portal, which provides skill-building lessons that parents can go over with their child and includes printable materials for use at home. The Parent Portal can be accessed on any device with a browser, such as a smartphone, tablet, or PC.
While we hope that the threat from this virus diminishes quickly, we stand ready to support our educational partners through this time of uncertainty.
