Fall 2020 provides families with more challenges than a regular school year. Every family will need to evaluate their needs, risk tolerance, and abilities when deciding how and where they will educate their children. Little Lake County has always been a resource for parents to find the options that best suit their individual families’ needs; this year is no different. We have reached out to our learning partners and school community to put together this guide for Fall Education Options for parents.
Fall 2020 Education Options in Lake County
About this guide: Little Lake County is not associated with any of the schools listed; partnerships are not an endorsement of a particular school or curriculum but are provided to give the community more in-depth information about options available. We have organized it into three sections so you can find what you need for either full-time school or just additional assistance or enrichment.
Ultimately it is your decision about what type of school you and your family choose. For the best and most up to date information on the outbreak locally, please visit the Lake County Health Department COVID-19 status page.
