Updated Aug. 13 at 7:45 a.m. The program is now at capacity.

First Baptist Church-Georgetown will be offering remote learning assistance and care for working parents during the first three weeks of school, according to a Georgetown ISD Aug. 11 news release. This program has now reached capacity.

Families who have a child in kindergarten through fifth grade can enroll in the church’s free program. The program will run Aug. 20-Sept. 9 from 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

In addition to school work, the FBG team is planning a variety of safe but fun activities throughout each day, the release said. Daily lunch service from GISD and after-school care may also be available, it said.

The care will be provided by volunteers and paid church staff who have completed a background check, according to the church’s website.


Safety protocols include maintaining social distancing, utilizing masks, keeping kids who are in the same room together throughout the day to minimize any spread and cleaning rooms between each use, the website said.

Interested families should visit https://fbg.church/gisd-student-registration/. Space is limited.

Virtual learning for GISD students begins Aug. 20. The first day of optional in-person class begins Sept. 10.
