A local business in Fairfield is offering its space as a way for students to distance learn during the pandemic.
Neighbors and fellow moms Michele Scholl and Jessica McCormack opened up AR Workshop Fairfield almost two years ago as a way for people to take in-person classes to make wood projects, canvases and chunky-knit blankets.
The business owners say they came up with the idea of opening their space to students when they realized how cramped homes could get if there's not designated space for kids to learn.
They say their space is open to distance learners, and that students will have to wear masks and have their temperatures taken before coming in.
They say up to four students from a school-assigned cohort will be allowed at each workstation inside the studio, and they are allowed to bring a parent or tutor too.
Parents can sign up for a morning or afternoon session.
Each session will run four weeks and cost $20 a day, or $400 for 4 weeks.
