YCS To Open Learning Lab At Parkridge Community Center

Jan 7, 2021

With the help of Eastern Michigan University, the United Way, and other local groups, Ypsilanti Community Schools will open an in-person Learning Lab on Monday January 11th.  


The free Learning Lab at the Parkridge Community Center will be available Monday - Thursday from 9 am to 3 pm for K- 5 students enrolled at Ypsilanti Community Schools.  Superintendent Alena Zachery-Ross says the main purpose of the lab will be to provide academic support during the pandemic.

Superintendent Alena Zachery-Ross: Some of our students are still struggling with internet connection, and so, they will have stronger internet connections.  Some of them are not as familiar with using some of the programs, so there will be adults there to help them to navigate their online instruction.

The lab will accommodate up to 30 students at a time, and breakfast and lunch will also be provided.  For information on how to register for the lab, click here.
