Are your kids bored or distracted at home trying to learn remotely?
Does your work schedule make it difficult to keep your student on task all day?
The Hawkins Distance Learning Program may be able to help.
As our young students and teachers work through the pandemic more virtually, many families with school age children are finding it difficult to manage distance learning from home. Parents are working from home for their jobs, tending to younger children or just not available during key study hours. This has created a necessary if not urgent need to provide alternate solutions to distance learning from home.
As a result, The Hawkins School of Performing Arts is offering an afternoon program to aid families with supervised distance learning. Our program meets the required minutes of asynchronous learning as stated by the local school districts, as well as offering an hour of dance or recreational (physical education) activity.
