YWCA Greenwich Offers Free Remote Learning Camp for Displaced Students from JC, NMS, OG and Riverside

YWCA Greenwich will again hold a free remote learning Day Camp for students in four elementary schools displaced this week.

Students from North Mianus, Julian Curtiss, Old Greenwich and Riverside Elementary Schools are spending the week at YWCA Greenwich, spread around the building and attending school remotely on their laptops.

As of Sunday, February 21, almost 50 students had enrolled.

Superintendent Toni Jones approached both YWCA Greenwich and the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich last week to help families in need of coverage during the school day. Both organizations provided the same free assistance to students when the Cos Cob school flooded.

“We were inundated with requests starting late last week and through the weekend,” said Arthur Smith, YWCA Director of Youth Programs on Monday. “They are off to a good start in school-based cohorts today.”

The Board of Education also delivered free and reduced priced meals for students spending the day at the facility.

YWCA Greenwich also provided a free remote learning day camp for a week in January, when schools went remote for an extra week following the holiday break.
