Parents & Students
PLPSD has launched a website to help parents cope with remote learning. This website includes information and supports for parents to help them learn more about the systems their child is using for remote learning. There are how-to guides that support parents, as well as troubleshooting guides if their technology is not working. This website will continue to be updated to include new information.
