News & Information

Friendship to expand in-person learning hubs to all campuses

Pre-K to 12th grade hubs will offer 4-day weekly schedules. Families can opt to remain in virtual learning from home.


The Mayor officially announced today that the District’s public schools will bring more students back into school buildings for in-person support in early November. For the past several weeks, on five FPCS school sites, we have provided in-person Learning Hubs for a limited number of students with parents who are essential workers and who have critical learning needs. Since opening our Learning Hubs – operated in full compliance with health, safety and social-distancing guidelines – we have grown a waitlist of families and staff interested in joining an in-person hub.

In response to the demand for more safe, structured and staffed in-person learning opportunities, Friendship will offer Learning Hubs on every elementary, middle and high school campus starting November 9. If you are interested in a Learning Hub spot for your child, complete our Learning Hub Registration Survey by October 14. Families who want their child to remain in virtual learning at home can continue to do so.

Learning Hub students in prekindergarten through 12th grade will receive in person, on campus instructional support four (4) days a week and with one (1) day of virtual learning at home. While on campus, all Learning Hub students will engage in virtual lessons along with their peers at home. In the days ahead, we will provide additional details on Learning Hub weekly schedules by grade level.
