LINK After School 2019–2020

September 30th – May 22nd

 Monday — Friday, 2:25–5:30pm

LINK After School will be carried out digitally for the remainder of the 2019-2020 year. Please use these resources to keep the LINK learning fun alive from your very own home!

Virtual Tutoring

  • LINK students and leaders can sign up to talk one-on-one with a LINK teacher who can help with schoolwork from home. Virtual tutoring services are available Monday–Friday from 10am–6pm. Sign up on this form or by reaching out to Coya Villegas via or (410) 235-2210; ext. 210. When using virtual tutoring services, students should look over their schoolwork before the scheduled meeting. In consideration of everyone’s time, and to accommodate technical difficulties, students will receive a 10-minute window to join the phone or video call.

Educational and enrichment videos

  • Check out the Village Learning Place’s Youtube channel for read alouds and other videos that are fun to watch and will help grow your brain! New content is added weekly.
