School Restart Resources
The Conifer Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with our community educators to create solutions for families as we walk through the fall school schedule.
We will be adding resources once the needs assessment is complete. We will be partnering with local educators, businesses and community members to provide necessary resources for families with school aged children.
Some students may need a place with high-speed internet so that they may participate in on-line learning prior to in-person classes taking place. If your business or organization has internet and space available for students please let us know as we are compiling a list. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested in volunteering to help students in the virtual/on-line environment during the Fall 2020 semester, please fill out the following form to start the process. There are two types of volunteer positions open to help students virtually. Please take a moment to read through the descriptions so you understand the tasks and time commitments required.

Options for Internet Service
Do you and your child need to access the internet for completing schoolwork, but have no internet or unreliable service?
There are several businesses that have indicated they have internet available and are willing to let you and your child visit to get schoolwork completed. Note that these are not childcare facilities and parents are responsible for their children. Please contact each business directly to get specifics on hours, availability of services and guidelines. Some may charge a nominal fee and most have limited space available. You may need to make a reservation at some locations.
While you are using the internet services and space at these locations, please make sure to support the businesses that are supporting you during this time. Purchase something, make a donation, and give them a great review on social media.
