I wanted to check in with families around Brunswick about the transition as kids return to school.

We’ve launched a quick survey for families with kids in primary and secondary schools around Brunswick. You can fill it in below.

I’ve been in touch with most of the local principals recently to check in on how the reopening has been going.
