Resources for Parents & Children During School Closures

Note: We have compiled this list to aid families while schools are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All Clear Foundation is not paid to promote any of these resources and does not validate any claims made.

The impact of a First Responder’s job affects their entire family. Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic can introduce additional stress, health risks and increase already long hours spent away from home. We have compiled a few resources we hope will be of help to our First Responder Families during current school closures.
