Staying Safe & Healthy

During this time, it is important to us that our students and families receive ongoing support, academically and otherwise. SFNC has set up a small fund for families to use in the event of an emergency. The distribution of funds will be decided by staff on a case by case basis. 

If a Power Project parent or family member needs help during this time, they can let a staff member know during their check-in or contact our Parent Liaison Coordinator Everel Watson at everel@stfranciscenter.org.

Please refer to the CDC and Baltimore City Health Department guidelines to ensure health and safety of your family.

Free Meals For Families

Baltimore City is providing grab-n-go meals to all Baltimore children and youth (18 and under) Monday-Friday, March 23-27. The city is also distributing meals for families at select Housing Authority of Baltimore City sites for those communities’ residents only. 

Dorothy I. Height has closed as a meal distribution location. The closest distribution location to most families in the 21217 area code is now the Mount Royal Recreation Center at Mount Royal Elementary/Middle.

Please see the link below to find your free meals location, listed at bmorechildren.com. All meal distribution sites are listed below by quadrant and with meal type and time.

Continued Learning

We all know education is essential. It is our goal that all students in the Power Project will use iReady online instruction for at least 1 hour per day so that students can continue learning from home. Students will earn 1 PowerBuck (our incentive program: PowerBucks are used to purchase toys in our PowerBuck Store) per 15 minutes they log on iReady. There is no limit or cap to how many PowerBucks they can earn. We ask that parents/guardians monitor students while on iReady if possible. If you have trouble please contact us. We are here to help!

Daily SFNC Staff Check-in's

Our staff is committed to keeping open communication with all families throughout this period. Each of our staff members has been assigned four families to check-in with daily from Monday to Thursday. The goal of these calls is to make sure our families are OK, check-in on their child's learning at home, and provide additional resources and support as needed. Our staff is here to listen. Each family will recieve a check-in call every day. An initial call will be made to see what the best time to contact you is. Some families will receive daily calls from staff who are usually 'behind the scenes.” Click the link below to see pictures, names, and titles of our team so that you may put a name to a face.
