Day 1 of  distance learning got underway this morning; What was your child's experience?

Charles Porter defended his son Riley during his son's break from distance learning. Charies remained connected to his job through his phone and earbuds as they played.

Riley Porter, a 10-year-old Elk River student, took a break from distance learning to play some hoops with his dad, Charles Porter. The Porters said the day got off to a rocky start when the system crashed, but the Parker Elementary School student was able to resume his work when the system was back up and running.

Riley said he misses his friends and having his teachers, particularly in math, explain the material to him.

The Porter family has three children in the Elk River Area School District and Charles said his kids seem to roll with technology.
