August 2020

Greetings from all of us at Cornerstone.
Last time we asked if you were ready to go back to the office or not.  Are you ready to send your kids to school. This is usually the time of year for back to school shopping and the excitement of moving to college.  The year 2020 has changed that on us too.  Colleges are mostly resuming in person classes, and dorm living, but with mask requirements and safety precautions.  Primary schools are largely developing hybrid programs working between in person classes and online options.  It is a scary situation as a parent, trying to decide what it best for your kids.  There is no right answer.  School administrators are doing their best to be nimble and teachers are planning for all sorts of contingencies.  But nothing about the process will be normal.  As we, at Cornerstone, send our kids back to school too, we wanted to share some resources that might help you along the way.  

As always, let us know if you have any questions or ideas for upcoming topics.  We would love to hear from you.  Thank you for the privilege of continuing to assist you on your journey to meet  your financial goals.
