The Y is working with parents to offer child care services to students in grades Pre-K through eighth who have to stay at home and learn virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to supervision, the Y says the program will also include wireless internet connection and a lunch.

Following schooling sessions, the YMCA says students can expect fun activities such as swimming, games, and structured activities.

Each student should bring a device, headphones, and necessary school supplies. Parents should also ensure their child knows their school login information to access the online courses.
