Please help our family to navigate online school this fall! Our two children, ages 8 and 6, will be starting third and first grade online in September. Their teachers will do the teaching, but we learned last spring that they will also need adult support on issues ranging from snacks to schedules to staying (mostly) focused on the task at hand. And of course they also need supervised breaks and outdoor time.
We're ideally looking for about 20 hours per week, on weekday mornings and early afternoons, but both the number of hours and the schedule are flexible. Also willing to work around class schedules and other commitments.
As a family, we're relatively low risk for exposure to Covid-19 (both parents WFH, serious about social distancing) and hoping to find a babysitter with similarly minimal exposure.
