We all continue to follow the news and know this is a time of heightened awareness and concern about the health and safety of our families, students, and community. We share in your sadness, and look forward to a time when we can learn, celebrate, and simply be together in person.  

How We Are Responding

As you and your schools heed the directives set forth by state and local officials when it comes to preventative measures to stay healthy, we are here to help you adjust to teaching, learning, and parenting in this new environment of physical distancing.  

The Behrman House team is working hard to make it easier for you. Over the coming weeks and months, we will be rolling out a variety of student, teacher, and family resources to help us all through these challenging times.
