Update on March 24, 2020

We are one week in with a new way of teaching, learning and being community. We understand many of our families are struggling to support children in their studies while balancing other responsibilities. Many of you are facing job loss and health issues. During all this, PUENTE remains committed to helping students stay connected to us and their educational goals.

Even though our campus will now remain closed through May 4, 2020, our team is here for support, resources, and connection. Lessons and activities are available daily – ONLINE! I encourage all our students to get on the internet via phone, home computer or tablet to take advantage of this help. Use the practice lessons in textbooks or other study materials instructors have given out or texted to the class. See the links below for more educational resources.

PUENTE will share updates by email, and by phone in the coming weeks. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at michele@puente.org

Stay healthy and well.

Senior Director, Programs
