LOMPOC The Lompoc Unified School District is teaming up with the United Boys and Girls Club to provide additional hours after school La Honda Elementary’s campus, where students can get homework help and more.
Superintendent Trevor McDonald said that he is “pumped for the positive impact this will have on kids.”
The three additional hours after school will be used for homework help and social skills development through interactions with adults and other students.
This afterschool option will not only give students homework help but also allow parents to pick up their children at a later time of 6 p.m. meaning less worries about pick-up coordination as well as less money spent on caretakers.
“Knowing how well (the Boys and Girls Club’s) other programs support students academically, as well as the flexibility for parents that this new program provides, ensures that this will be nothing less than a success,” said La Honda’s principal Noelle Barthel.
The program will kick off on Aug. 20, the first day of the 2019-2020 academic year.
