NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro Nashville Public Schools will keep its six outdoor, virtual learning help centers open for an extra two weeks, to continue helping parents and students.

The virtual learning support sites will remain open through at least Friday October 2. School officials say more than 2,000 students and families have used the sites for help with devices, connectivity issues or general assistance with logging into and navigating the district’s virtual learning platforms.

“We know the virtual learning help centers are a valuable service to not only our students but our families as well,” Director of Schools Dr. Adrienne Battle said in a press release. “We are committed to continuing to meet our families’ and students’ individual needs as we navigate this unique school year together.”

The following six locations will be open to students and families Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. now through Friday, Oct. 2:
