Resources At-Home

At-Home Parent Resources K-12

As race and equity issues continue to be at the forefront of the news, please know that the Fort Lee Public Schools has a stance condemning racism, discrimination, injustice, and violence.  

We must all be committed and focused on being part of the solution and making the world a better place. While our goal is to help our students cope with challenging situations, we are equally committed to helping students develop and enhance social skills such as empathy, social responsibility and ethical decision-making.  

As you continue your conversations at home, we have included some resources you may find helpful.  The list includes a variety of resources for families and children of different age levels. Please feel free to reach out to your child’s counselor for additional support.
