Staying Connected

Heart & Hand continues to respond to changing public health recommendations and plans from Denver Public Schools. We are currently providing remote learning support to elementary and middle school students to ensure they attend their remote classes, stay engaged and keep learning! Heart & Hand is also focusing on the social emotional needs of our students and families during these challenging times. Career & College Readiness emerging leaders will continue to have one-on-one check-ins and access to drop-in hours. All community members can participate in Heart & Hand's ongoing food distribution weekly on Wednesdays from 4-6PM. 

CURRENT PROGRAMS

Heart & Hand’s elementary programs have resumed full-day program offerings in response to Denver Public Schools' 3rd-5th grade return to remote learning. The two locations are Prep Academy (targeted at Columbine Elementary students) and Clayton Early learning (targeted at Smith Elementary students). Middle school programs are being offered at Bruce Randolph Middle School and remotely. Career & College Readiness students will continue to receive communication about virtual hangouts, drop-in hours, and one-on-one support.  Changes to programming may be necessary based on shifting public health requirements and school district decisions. Students and families currently enrolled in programming will be informed of any changes to program offerings by their Program Manager.
