Local News

LA CROSSE/EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – As school districts are increasingly shifting to virtual-learning models, area YMCAs are stepping up to help out parents.

The ‘Ys’ two locations in Eau Claire and one in Chippewa Falls is offering full-day virtual learning centers. Students can get help with school assignments for the week in addition to P.E. and arts and crafts.

Association Director of Child Care Services Caroline Wee says the program looks to help alleviate the stressors of remote-learning for parents.

Wee said, “They’re working from home and trying to do school work with their child, that’s not very conducive to that situation they really do have times where they need that one-on-one help with their homework and that’s one of the things that we provide. When they do go home, that’s family time, we want that to be family time.”

Students kindergarten through 12 years of age are eligible.

A similar program is also in La Crosse.
