LINKS Spring Distance Program

Dear LINKS families, 

Our Fall LINKS Distance program will be concluding soon and it is time to look forward to the 2021 Spring Term.  As many of you know, the HRCE schools are  limiting use of their facilities to the public and as such, the LINKS program is not able to run in-person programming.  Our successful distance programming for students runs from the first week of January into March as an after school, at-home instruction. This program is entirely online, therefore, students who participate must have access to the following:

  • Students must have access to a reliable internet connection
  • Students must have access to a device capable of running Google Suite and in-browser aps
    • if not already integrated into their primary device, students will need access to headphones/speakers, a microphone, and a camera.
    • Smartphones are discouraged as a primary device due to limitations posed by screen size.

We have attached the Spring 2021 registration form to this email in a word format; however, if you wish to fill in the form ONLINE please click the following link:
