As students continue distance learning at home, the Parks and Community Services Department can help.
L.I.V.E. 'n' Rec (Learning in a Virtual Environment) program:
L.I.V.E. ‘n’ Rec (Learning in a Virtual Environment) is designed to offer support for working parents with children in Kindergarten to 5th grades. Registration is offered in three-week sessions, per COVID-19 protocol and will continue as long as the Dublin Unified School District continues with distance-only learning.
Students will be assigned to stable cohort groups of not more than 14, adhering to all State and County safety guidelines and protocol. This includes daily temperature checks, proper social distancing, frequent hand washing, and regular sanitizing of supplies and equipment.
Once distance learning is complete, play begins. Students will engage in cooperative games, activities, sports, fitness activities, creative play, and arts and crafts.
Students must bring all distance learning equipment and materials including laptop computers, headphones, pens, pencils, notebooks, etc., as well as the specific links and passwords required to access their schoolwork. Students must also bring their own lunches, snacks, and beverages. No food will be provided due to COVID-19 protocols.
The program will be open, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday at four sites in Dublin: Shannon Community Center, Dublin Senior Center, The Wave at Emerald Glen Park, and Dublin Library.
The cost for each three-week session is $300 for Dublin residents; $360 for non-residents. Weekly payment plans are available and may be selected at registration.
