Use Gorton Center for your child’s remote learning needs!  Participants (maximum of 10 students) will be socially distanced at their own table where they will be supported by a licensed master teacher/tutor who will facilitate remote learning for grades 3-8. This will be a supervised setting that provides a measure of safety for parents who want their children to learn in a small groups, and also offers a chance for their children to socialize. Gorton will provide air purifiers and will sanitize the room each day and during the lunch break.

Students will need to bring their own laptop or device and charging cord and their elearning curriculum and Gorton will supply extension cords and power strips. Students staying for a full day must bring their own lunch and all students are welcome to bring their own snacks. We have a fully functioning kitchen available which includes a refrigerator and microwave.  Students may bring a cell phone but we do ask that they are switched to silent mode.
