Public Schools: Outreach for Inclusive Environments As educators traverse the new domain of virtual and hybrid education, traditional classroom challenges may include an added dimension of complexity taking into account both student and teacher socio-emotional wellness.

The Islamic Association of Erie also distributed food from their food pantry to families as well.  “There is certainly a need in the community, especially during the virus. Lot’s of low income families will be impacted, but kids are still going to go to school virtually. They would still need supplies to be able to do their studies smoothly.” Razin Karu, the outreach coordinator for Pennsylvania, said. ICNA Relief is a nationwide organization, but has chapters in different regions. The Pennsylvania chapter plans to distribute school supplies to nine cities. Erie was the first stop on the journey.   Article Courtesy: erienewsnow.com
