DPR Learning Hubs

To support students' continued learning during the public health emergency, Mayor Muriel Bowser has launched Learning Hubs for DC students with support from DPR and DCPL.

Learning Hubs provide families in the District with safe spaces for their children to engage in supervised independent activities. These spaces will provide students with access to internet, and offer recommended independent activities based on age group and host site. This Learning Hub will serve students who are rising Kindergarten through 5th graders, ages 6-12.

DPR Learning Hubs will operate in the following locations:

Staff will wear face coverings at all times, and participants will be required to wear face masks when medically and developmentally appropriate. Participants will be seated at least 6 ft apart from each other during structured activities. Additionally, there will be no more than 10 people in each group. Enhanced cleaning of the building will occur between sessions.
Families can sign up today! Participants should come prepared with an electronic device and charger, headphones, and any other materials needed to complete school assignments.
