The Alexandria Soccer Association introduced ASA School+, a nine-week educational program for students in kindergarten through fifth grade, according to a news release.
ASA School+, which follows the ASA’s new day camp program, Camp ALEX, that ran over the summer, aims to supplement students’ education while offering child care options for parents.
Through the program, ASA staff will facilitate students’ online schooling in a safe, outdoor environment, supplementing online classes with movement breaks, crafts and games throughout the day, according to the release.
The program is being offered as part of a broader city and schools effort to safely provide students with additional educational opportunities, as well as space to participate in their schools’ synchronous learning.
The program will run on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for first through fifth graders and from 8 a.m. to noon for kindergarteners, according to the ASA’s website. Students will be able to take part in the program at Brenman Park and Simpson Park, with additional sites yet to be announced.
