Our number one priority at Kids on Course is the health and safety of our students. Kids on Course will be providing virtual programming only. During this time, we will use our website to share community resources on how to access food and meet basic needs, in addition to providing ideas for learning at home.

Thank you for supporting Kids on Course and being a strong community that cares for each other!
