Dear Parents and Guardians of the Estabrook Community,
We sincerely hope that everyone is staying well. We know this is a significant disruption to the routine for so many, and as a PTO we are focused on supporting our staff, faculty, parents, and especially children during this time.
Please bookmark this page and feel free to check back, as we plan to regularly update the page throughout the day in order to incorporate new ideas as they are submitted.
Additionally, if you have books, learning materials, or other supplies that you are willing to lend or give to others in need, or if you are in need of those items, please use the Estabrook Google group during this time to post offers and wants. Please note: We ask that anyone who borrows an item from a community neighbor please return the item within two weeks in the same or better condition than when it is borrowed unless the lender specifically states otherwise.
You can subscribe to the Google group by emailing:
Thank you all for working together to make this transitional time go as smoothly as possible!

Lexington Community Help Request/Volunteer Sign-Up!
Dear Lexington residents,
At the Community COVID-19 Forum last Thursday, one of the panelists Dr. Hua Wang mentioned that Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL) is organizing a volunteer group to help those families impacted by the novel coronavirus. We have received many positive feedbacks.
We created an online registration form to recruit volunteers to serve those families in isolation or quarantine with urgent needs, to help them contact doctors, purchase food, medicine and other needed goods, and more.
If you can help, please register with the form below. If you are in need of help for your family, please register below as well. We will find the match and address the needs as much as we can.
This is open to all Lexington residents who want to be a volunteer, or seek help.
We are all in this together and together we shall prevail!
