I have read many articles recently about the possibility of many more families planning to homeschool next year due to coronavirus. I considered linking some of those articles here but honestly, there are too many to link. Google, “planning to homeschool in the fall because of coronavirus” and you will see what I mean.
Some families are worried schools will not open in the fall and are unhappy with the prospect of continuing online school. Some continue to worry about their child contracting COVID should there be a resurgence of germs this fall/ winter. Others have taken a hard look at the education their children were receiving at school since they are now watching the lessons online with their children at home. Some have enjoyed having more time together as a family and want to try something new.
Do you fall into one of these categories? Are you one of these families in NYC? Do you have any questions about how to homeschool? I’m happy to answer any questions in the comments or you can contact me via email. Here is an old post detailing how to tell the NYCDOE you plan to homeschool. The first step is a short and simple email.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope to be helpful!
