Everyone is under a lot of stress, so it's important to remain calm, be patient and kind, and take care of one another. Check in with your friends and neighbors, do your part to practice social distancing to slow the spread of the virus, know the facts, and follow the advice of trusted sources like the CDC and Maine CDC . 211Maine has trained operators to answer basic questions, too.
Project GRACE is neighbors helping neighbors, and together, we will get through this worrying time. If you need us, please call 883-5111. Our volunteers are monitoring our phone line remotely and will call you back as soon as we can.

SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED  -  Resources for Parents
The Scarborough Public Schools are closed for the time being, but there are resources to help parents, and more will be coming soon.

The School Nutrition Backpack Program will continue to provide food to families. If you are worried about feeding your kids, email or leave a message at 730-4700.
Many groups are offering tips for talking with your kids about coronavirus, and here are a couple we found: Girl Scouts of Maine, PBS, and NASP.

Scholastic and others have online learning resources to keep kids engaged.

We're all practicing social distancing, but parks and trails are open, and we encourage you to go for a walk with your kids.
