Summer education programs aren’t new, but some school districts have record attendance this year. Many children who have missed the face-to-face school experience due to COVID-19 look forward to being back in the classroom – even in summer.
Programs in Jefferson, Hardin, and Shelby Counties all offer expanded options this year to accommodate the number of interested students.
“This summer is not only full of learning, but also full of joy. We see a lot of smiles and those are unmasked smiles, “said Susan Dugle, Shelby County’s chief academic officer.

Keep an eye on the app store of your choice – Foodching is expected to launch on June 22nd.
