Back To School

It’s that time of year again… Back to school is here! School is looking a little different for everyone this year as a result of Coronavirus. Whether the students and teachers are doing school from home or actually in the classroom, this is a stressful time for everyone.

It’s no secret that teachers go above and beyond to provide their students with positive and fulfilling educational experiences. Doing that this school year is even more difficult. Teachers are having to buy even more school supplies than normal to abide by COVID-19 safety procedures in the classroom. 

Here are some way that we can all help teachers and students:

  1. Reach out to see what teachers specifically need.
  2. Donate to the classroom of teachers doing in person learning.
  3. Donate to the teachers who are online and need help.
  4. Check with the students and see what they need.
  5. Continue to show up and help throughout the entire school year.
  6. Share this resource with others to bring awareness to what teachers and students need.

You can reach out to us here at Rountree Realty if you have any questions on how to help. These are difficult times for everyone and the more we can help each other out the better! 

Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricanes are dangerous and can cause major damage because of storm surge, wind damage, and flooding. They can happen along any U.S. coast or in any territory in the Atlantic or Pacific oceans. Storm surge is historically the leading cause of hurricane-related deaths in the United States.

The peak of hurricane season is upon us and we need to be sure we are all prepared. 

Here are some tips for the best possible outcome:

  1. Know Your Hurricane Risk
  2. Make An Emergency Plan
  3. Recognize Warnings and Alerts
  4. Know Your Evacuation Zone
  5. Gather Supplies
  6. Strengthen Your Home
  7. Help Your Neighbors
  8. Get Tech Ready
  9. Review Important Documents
  10. Be Safe
