LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Parents are finding creative ways to make remote learning work for their families.

Marcella Hines and her husband work full time and their 5-year-old triplets started kindergarten this year.

Hines says they found that giving each child their own workspace really helped.

They also came up with a creative way for the kids to let mom and dad know when they need help.

"We set up different signals with the kids," she explained. "We had a little red cone we found at the dollar store in front of our office for when my husband was on a phone call."

"Just took it day by day," she said, "honestly sometimes hour by hour."

Facebook and other online pages are also connecting parents, helping communities share extra computer equipment with those in need and hooking up high school students with tutoring jobs.
