Hybrid School Programs

About Coralville NESTS

(Nurturing Every Student Together Safely)

Coralville has worked with community partners to bring support services to families while the Iowa City Community School District is using the hybrid school model.

These services range from once a week programs aimed at social and emotional well-being for children and families, to all-day programs that support children in an all-day school service with wrap around before and after school age care services. The programs help families when school is not fully in session at school locations by extending a helping hand to Nuture Every Student Together Safely (NESTS).

The programs may focus on any or several of the following:
  • Respite site to help with isolation stress
  • Adult supervision or assistance with academic learning
  • homework help
  • enrichment activities
  • access to community resources for other services
  • school age care
  • healthy snacks
Child and adults doing schoolwork
Each program has its own registration process. 

COVID-19: All programs require that a mask be worn. Social distancing and sanitizing practices will be used.
