Storytime with Dana: ‘Freddy the Frogcaster’

In the midst of all of these abrupt changes, with offices and schools closed during the coronavirus outbreak, so many people are grappling with how to manage taking care of their children while also taking care of business. I have lots of friends who were staring into the future thinking, “How are we going to do this?” I had an idea of how to help – to provide a few minutes each afternoon of Storytime with Dana. I loved being read to as a child, and I remember Mrs. Laura Bush encouraging families to keep a story time routine with children as much as possible, especially during times of stress and uncertainty. I hope that parents will be able to take a breather while I try to keep their kids occupied and entertained for a few minutes every day. Today’s book is one from a familiar face, Janice Dean the Weather Machine! Just click here to watch and listen!

Fun!!    Thanks Dana!!   🙂

Ed Secretary Betsy DeVos Halts Collections Actions Against Student Loan Defaulters

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has directed the Federal Student Aid (FSA) office to halt collection actions and wage garnishments against students who have defaulted on their education loans. According to a press release, DeVos’s department will refund more than $1.8 billion to more than 830,000 students in default in order to provide assistance during the coronavirus crisis. DeVos said in a statement: ” These are difficult times for many Americans, and we don’t want to do anything that will make it harder for them to make ends meet or create additional stress. Americans counting on their tax refund or Social Security check to make ends meet during this national emergency should receive those funds, and our actions today will make sure they do.” The period of flexibility is retroactive from March 13, the date President Donald Trump declared a national emergency, and will continue for at least 60 days from that date. The education department has halted all requests to the U.S. Treasury to deny funds from defaulted borrowers’ federal income tax refunds, Social Security payments, and other “Treasury offsets.” DeVos has also instructed private collection agencies to stop their activities to obtain payments from student borrowers. Trump announced students with federal loans would automatically have their interest rates dialed back to 0 percent for a period of at least 60 days. Students may also suspend their loan payments for at least two months to allow greater flexibility during the emergency situation. Education department site studentaid.gov states: ” To provide relief to student loan borrowers during the COVID-19 national emergency, federal student loan borrowers can be placed in an administrative forbearance, which allows you to temporarily stop making your monthly loan payment.” Students and families with further questions about their federal student aid during school closures can visit the same site for assistance.
