YORKTOWN, N.Y. – John and Elaine Griffiths are spending social distancing with four of their kids in their Yorktown home. Their oldest daughter, Etta, is living in Detroit, completing a year of full-time volunteer work. Here is their quarantine story, in their own words:

“Aside from the daily schoolwork—kids as students, John as assistant superintendent of Croton-Harmon Schools—the whole family is musical! Lots of practicing and playing the piano, guitar and band instruments; Zooming music into our weekly church services; Kelly even taught herself the ukulele during this time!”
