HAMPTON — Superintendent Dr. Lois Costa announces Hampton School District’s annual summer program will offer additional support to students identified as having struggled with remote and hybrid learning over the course of the pandemic.
Each year, the summer program is offered to students identified as needing additional support and time in the classroom to prepare for the coming school year. The district has decided to broaden the scope of the program this summer following the challenges of remote and hybrid learning in an effort to close resulting achievement gaps among groups of students.
“Remote and hybrid learning impacted students differently based on many different factors, and while we were fortunate to be able to avoid fully remote learning this year and re-open to fully in-person learning this spring, many students need additional support to be better prepared for the fall,” Superintendent Costa said. “As a result, we’ve expanded the summer program to address those needs among our students.”
Specifically, the program will also provide reading and math support as needed for each student.
The program will begin on Monday, July 6 and end on Thursday, July 29. The four-week program will be held Tuesdays through Thursdays, from 8-11 a.m. for Hampton Academy students in grades six through eight and from 8:30-11 a.m. for Centre and Marston School students in kindergarten through grade five.
Transportation and meals will be provided each day.
Parents and guardians with additional questions or who would like more information about the program are encouraged to contact their building principal.
