Programs sites

The Burlington Recreation and Parks Department and the Alamance-Burlington School System offer Afterschool Programs at the following locations: 
• Grove Park Elementary
• Hillcrest Elementary

At this time, we will not be offering programs at Andrews Elementary or Newlin Elementary. However, we will be collecting names and phones numbers for those interested in an Afterschool program at these sites. With enough interest, we will be able to offer this program. To be placed on the interest list, please call the BRPD Main Office at (336) 222-5030.

*We must have a minimum of 10 students to operate any Afterschool program.*

Pick up & drop off programs

For the remainder of the 2020-21 school year, BRPD will not provide transportation for any Afterschool site and Thataways Youth Center would not operate as an Afterschool drop-off site.

​Virtual Learning 

On the days your student is learning remotely, they are able to attend Thataways Youth Center for Virtual Learning Rec Days at an additional cost. This program operates from 7:30am - 6:00pm and lunch is provided. Transportation is not provided.

BRPD will provide a quality academic environment (quiet space, socially distanced student work spaces, internet access, adults to monitor etc.) where students can complete their studies. Staff will provide assistance to students as needed but please keep in mind that staff are not teachers. Due to the variance in each students virtual schedule and to reduce distractions, children are required to bring their school work daily. Parents will be asked to submit their student’s daily school schedule and login details. Students will be required to provide their own laptops, chargers and headphones. Cellphones will not be allowed.
