During this challenging time, a priority at Stand for Children is to do what we can to support our community and provide you with tools and information to help all children continue to learn and thrive despite school closings.
As we all adjust our routines to help combat the community spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), Stand is committed to helping Oregon families -- albeit now remotely -- with resources in navigating COVID - 19 related closures.

Districts across Oregon have stepped up to offer “grab-and-go” meals at no cost for children 18 and under. Get more info on your districtin in this comprehensive list from our friends at Hunger-Free Oregon.
The Oregon Department of Education has released their Distance Learning for All guidelines, which districts are expected to launch by April 13.
The guidelines are a step in the right direction in ensuring kids, their families, and their teachers have resources to get through help get through this school closure.
While desperately needed, these guidelines do not yet ensure that the needs of all students are met – much needs to be added for special education and emergent bilingual students. We look forward to working with ODE to ensure these resources evolve to meet the needs of more students.
You can browse the resources for families and educators – which include online and offline tools – here.
