“We’re ready to get back and have kids come back to this building, to have a safe place so their parents can work until five and then be able to come and pick them up. Their homework will be done, and they’ll have some fun while they’re here,” said Recreations and Parks Community Engagement Director Christi David.

Students will be able to work on homework and participate in arts and crafts, computer lab, ceramics, and have access to a game room and gym time, the release says.

Anyone with questions is asked to call David at (731) 693-7791.
