The Sanneh Foundation Response to COVID-19

Over the previous few weeks, The Sanneh Foundation has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation with extreme precaution. We cannot stress how important it is for our staff, families, and partners to make informed and considerate decisions regarding their social activities to help prevent the spread of contagious disease. With this in mind, and in conjunction with the Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS), St. Cloud Area School District (SCASD), and Saint Paul Parks and Recreation (SPPR), The Sanneh Foundation will be making the following changes to its programs and operational schedule starting Wednesday, March 18th through Monday, March 31st, 2020:

Important Changes
