The first day of school has officially begun for Sarah Michelle Gellar and her children, who are continuing their studies at home in a bid to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Sarah, 43, jokingly asked for assistance from fans as she documented her first day of homeschooling on Wednesday, which was riddled with problems.

'In case anyone was wondering how the first day went... the fire alarm started going off ten minutes in ... and no ladder we had was tall enough to reach... so seems about right for 2020 #sendhelp #homeschool #teachersareheroes,' she wrote.

In the video, Sarah stood in her living room holding onto two signs announcing her children's first day of school in quarantine.

'Send help,' Sarah whispered to the camera. 

Sarah and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr. share daughter Charlotte, 10, and son Rocky, eight, together.
