SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio City Parks and Recreation Department is opening  free Virtual Learning Hubs at eight community centers in our city.

The hubs will be opening October 5th through December 18th on Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The hubs will provide internet access and a free lunch to students ages six and up.

“We know that students need reliable and safe spaces to continue their distance learning while caregivers return to work. In response to this need, we’ve transformed eight community centers into Virtual Learning Hubs. Once registered, students can bring their laptops, Chromebooks, or mobile devices to the Virtual Learning Hub and have access to internet for distance learning classes, schoolwork, and enjoy a hot meal,” noted Homer Garcia, III, Director of Parks and Recreation. 

Students and staff will need to follow COVID-19 health and safety protocols such health screenings, temperature checks, as well as wearing face coverings or masks daily, physical distancing and frequent hand washing.
