With everything going on, parents have come up with some creative home-school approaches and ideas.

One group of parents in the neighborhood of Twitter user Michael Haz have starting CO-OP home schooling. Basically each parent is teaching a small group of students about areas where they have a good bit of knowledge.

Obviously, children need physical activity as well, and without a structured PE class at school it can be hard to make sure kids are getting enough exercise, learning teamwork, sportsmanship, etc.

And studying from home is obviously a treat for a lot of these students:
