GREENSBORO — Students struggling to get internet access will be able to use high-speed internet at one of 64 sites in Guilford County Schools for two Saturdays later this month.

The district will open 64 schools on Saturday and Sept. 19 as internet hubs for students with limited internet access, the district said in a news release. The new academic year began Aug. 17, but the district started with remote learning for at least the first nine weeks because of the continuing coronavirus pandemic.

These hubs are in addition to the 13 Learning Centers available to students during the week.

The internet hubs will be open from 9 a.m. to noon on a first come, first serve basis, with up to 30 visitors allowed inside at a time. That includes students and parents. Students will need to bring their own devices.

District staff will be at each school to help families, however, they will not be teaching any classes, the district said. 

Parents must accompany K-5 students. Parents do not need to accompany middle and high school students, but those students will be required to show a student ID or schedule.

The district plans to assess participation after the first two weeks to determine if the internet hubs will be continued.

The following schools will host the Saturday internet hubs:
