Resources for Distance Learning

During virtual learning, we continue to offer Blair students, staff, and families e-books, audiobooks, and digital research opportunities. Additionally, many vendors in the educational community have offered open access to high quality research, reading, and teaching tools in addition to the wealth of resources MCPS and Blair already provide. Please continue to check to see if a platform or site is available. Let Ms. Lamphier know if you have any questions or concerns about our digital resources!

Common Sense Media Parenting Blog

Raising kids in today's media environment is challenging. But it's also fun, surprising, and inspiring. Our bloggers represent diverse views, but we all have one thing in common: We care about kids' media. We recognize that parents know their own kids best -- and know what's best for their own kids. The blog is a place to share ideas, confess our trials and tribulations, ask questions and get answers, learn something, teach something, explore topics of the day, uncover trends, and just be there for one another.
