As the country heads towards what is projected to be a difficult week, and the extended isolation and diffuse stress of the moment tax our inner resources, its helpful to remember the extensive support that continues to be made available to help New Mexicans get through this crisis. A few examples of this effort are provided below:
Last week, the New Mexico Economic Development Department and the Small Business Administration presented a webinar to assist small business owners in applying for government economic relief opportunities. The webcast of that presentation is available online. Additional forms, including application and information sheets about the paycheck protection program, and a question and answer sheet, are attached. New Mexico SCORE will be hosting a similar webinar tomorrow. Register here.
For Families Learning at Home
Local schools as well as the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) are providing information, resources, and support for students learning at home. NMPED has a list of resources to help teachers and families access supplemental resources and learning ideas. West Las Vegas High School is answering questions and providing information for parents about using the school’s online classrooms on the school Facebook page. Older students can get help with their assignments by using the Brainfuse online study and tutoring portal. Students can also do research and learning using Kids Info-Bits. This site provides information about a wide range of topics, and offers full audio versions for many entries.
