COVID-19 (coronavirus) closes 5th annual Mind, Body, Spirit Breakfast
In accordance with the current national and local guidance surrounding COVID-19 Coronavirus, we must refrain from hosting the 5th Annual Mind, Body, Spirit Breakfast on March 27th. On behalf of the staff and students, we would like to thank our generous event supporters, speakers, and volunteers for their commitment to this important annual gathering. We have seen wonderful growth with our event in the past four years and are excited to continue bringing women and our young ladies together for a dedicated day of learning and personal development.
We will share future plans soon, but for now we have turned our attention to our students and their families. As you know, Link is so much more than a school. In light of the impending health-related closure, we worked hard over the past few weeks preparing for the delivery of educational programming. As we instituted our closure yesterday, we were pleased to share with our families:
----a robust instructional program via online platforms,
----breakfast and lunch packages ready for pick up,
----chromebooks and routers athat they did not have,
----support from our special education team ito meet the needs of all our students,
----regular wellness checks,
----ongoing counseling sessions and speech therapy.
And much more is being delivered remotely to our scholars.
Our efforts are ever evolving as we creatively approach meeting the needs of our scholars and their families and we are dedicating resources to emerging needs.
While our work here at Link is re-imagined and ever-evolving, please consider a gift to help facilitate the necessary outreach Link is providing to its students and families during this crisis.
Thank you to our presenters for planning engaging workshops for our event.
