Sanneh Opens Distance Learning Hub for Children of Working Parents in St. Paul


Starting Monday, Conway Community Center is welcoming a maximum of 70 grade school students to its newest learning program. As the 2020-21 school year begins with a mix of both classroom and virtual lessons, Conway is open for children to attend their online classes and focus on their assigned school work within a safe and productive environment. Social distancing will be maintained by assigning each student a six-foot-long desk with protective shields designed to prevent the spread of airborne transmissions. The Sanneh Foundation will communicate regularly with Minnesota schools to stay up-to-date on lesson plans, and Conway’s 2:1 ratio of tutors to students will ensure that every child receives the education and attention they need to learn.


The Sanneh Foundation aims to allow parents and guardians to obtain jobs or continue working by providing a safe space for their children during normal school hours. The program is free of cost, and is targeted at students in grades second through sixth. Drop-off begins at 8:00 A.M., with sessions beginning at 8:30 A.M. and ending at 2:00 P.M. In addition to a daily breakfast, lunch, and snack, students will receive a free T-shirt and have access to an iPad charging station. Families can also enroll their children in the 2:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. Enrichment Time, which includes a dinner and snack in addition to the day’s earlier meals. Lastly, families will receive a weekly box of fresh produce to take back to their homes.
