Ground Zero

Good morning! Writing you from ground zero for that stupid virus taking place in the USA. The basic news, is that it is spreading. School systems are closing up shop, with the kids supposed to be doing their school by teleconference.

The question I have, is what about all those kids whose parents cannot afford a computer? They are the same ones marginalized by not having enough to eat at home, and who rely on school meals as their source of nutrition. Their parents, already strapped for enough money to pay their bills, are now being asked to either miss work, or pay more for child care. The local governments are going to have to go into high gear. They need to immediately identify, and help out those families before those kids fall too far behind. I am sure that the school systems have lists of known families that may be in distress. If they do not, why don’t they?
