Beginning Monday, Oct. 19, the City of Gainesville is opening Porters Community Center (512 SW Second Ter.) and the Eastside Recreation Center (2841 E. University Ave.) for remote learning support Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 7:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and Wednesdays from 7:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

Labs are open to school-aged children and their parents/guardian only.

Up to 20 Chromebooks are available at each location, or students may bring their own devices to connect to the local network.

Each facility will have supervision for the facility, but no childcare or individual supervision of the children will be provided. No meals will be provided.

Users must comply with COVID-19 measures such as wearing a mask, social distancing and temperature checks to enter.
