As schools across the United States implement and prepare for school closures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in their communities, I want to ensure that you know about the free, emergency support and virtual-learning classroom resources Britannica has made available to every school.

These curriculum-aligned, remote-learning enabled classroom resources are being leveraged by schools across the world who are grappling with shutdowns, conducting virtual lessons, and working to minimize the impact on students, families, and staff.
