About Virtual Learning Rec Days

In response to ABSS decision to follow Plan C (Virtual Learning) for the first nine weeks of school, Burlington Recreation and Parks will offer Virtual Learning Rec Days for students enrolled in Alamance-Burlington School System for rising kindergarten through 8th grade. The program will operate at Thataways Youth Center (1331 Overbrook Road, Burlington, NC 27215). This facility will be CLOSED to the non-participants during program hours.

BRPD will provide a quality academic environment (quiet space, socially distanced student work spaces, internet access, adults to monitor, etc.) where students can complete their studies. Staff will provide assistance to students as needed but please keep in mind that staff are not teachers. Due to the variance in each student's virtual schedule and to reduce distractions, children are required to bring their school work daily. Parents will be asked to submit their student’s daily school schedule and login details. Students will be required to provide their own laptops, chargers and headphones. Cellphones will not be allowed.
