A Free Newspaper for Every Student

by ROCCO MAGLIO

Public and private school teachers, as well as parents of homeschoolers, digital learners, and e-schoolers, can request a Hernando Sun newspaper for each of their students free of charge. Teachers can request a newspaper for every student since we encourage them to have the students take the newspapers home after using them in a lesson. We also understand that with the threat of COVID-19 many teachers do not want to reuse newspapers with different classes and we encourage them not to.
