For students in grades 3-K–8, who are participating in blended learning, Learning Bridges is a new program that will provide free childcare options on the days when students are scheduled for remote-learning instruction, for the same time period as the remote-learning instructional period. The Learning Bridges programs will:
Be operated by community-based organizations and other partners;
Provide opportunities for children to connect to remote-learning activities;
Include time for art, recreation, and other age-appropriate activities;
Follow the same rigorous health and safety precautions as schools.
Families can express interest in the Learning Bridges program by completing the Learning Bridges family interest form.
Please note that students who reside in shelters or hotels will be prioritized for the program.
