Since March 2020, everything has changed - except the solidarity of our LEAP family. The day our school closed last spring, our teachers packed school supplies, books and tablets, which we delivered to families in stages through the spring and summer. Through our partnership with Porch Durham, we have been able to give our families food and gift cards for food shopping.

In June 2020, 77% of the COVID cases in Durham County were in the Latino community. In response to many of our students' parents being laid-off or becoming sick, we began making grants to families so they could pay their rent and remain housed.

Last school year, we provided online instruction and also saw our preschool students in-person, outside, in very small groups. This year, we are back in-person and spending almost all of our time outside and masked. Our tutoring students and their tutors are meeting online through zoom.  Now that we are not constrained by the size of our building, we have more than doubled the number of students we are tutoring to fifty students!  We are continuing to work with community partners to give our families access to food and other forms of support.


Your support helps us respond to the needs that have been created by COVID. Our school has needed outdoor tents, lighter-weight tables (that we move in and out each day), thermometers, etc). The needs of our families and children have ranged from rent support, to clothing, to tuition assistance. Your donation enables us to respond to these kinds of needs as they emerge and change.
