The COVID-19 outbreak has affected students and school communities around the world. Many school districts have suspended classes to slow the spread of the illness. The CDC has offered guidance to prepare for remote instruction. And millions of kids have questions about how to navigate these confusing times.
We believe it is critical for students to have a safe, age-appropriate resource for global news. In the wake of the coronavirus and school closures, this is more important now than ever before. That’s why we are offering schools and students free access to News-O-Matic through June 30.
We want to help minimize educational disruption and keep young readers informed about their world. We are working closely with experts (including a pediatrician and child psychologist) who will answer questions and help kids understand this difficult time. And we are committed to engaging young readers every day, no matter where in the world they are. News-O-Matic can be accessed by desktop, phone, or tablet to facilitate learning at any time and any place.
