LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — It’s the first day back in class for CCSD students and parents and teachers are tackling pandemic-related challenges.
Monica spoke with John Etzell who is the executive director of Boys Town Nevada as he shared how you can help kids get acclimated to the “new normal.”
John Etzell and his wife are parents to three teenagers. He shared a few helpful tips that can help parents when it comes to managing the “new normal” in school.
