PALS program offers distance learning support for kids

The City of Lakewood is offering an extension of the Camp Circle program this fall in order to support Lakewood resident families who have children in distance learning.

The Park Alternative Learning Sites (PALS) program will be offered at 8 park locations from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. for children in first through fifth grades.

Monthly programs will offer a safe atmosphere for children to complete their schoolwork and participate in virtual learning while in a group setting of one adult to ten children.

Participants must provide their own laptop or tablet, but each site will provide ample bandwidth to support all the devices on the network simultaneously. Face coverings and daily temperature checks are required.
