Internet Hubs

Internet Hubs

PCPS is offering internet hubs for students and families to access the internet for virtual learning. There are daytime and evening options available at Pocahontas Landmark Center (4290 Anderson Highway), Powhatan High School (1800 Judes Ferry Road), and Powhatan Middle School (4135 Old Buckingham Road). Any PCPS student is able to sign up for these three-hour sessions, but certain students will require parental supervision as outlined below. Signups will be available on a two-week basis beginning the Friday prior to the two-week period. Students and parents using the hubs will be expected to follow the Health Plan in our Return to Learning 2020 guide. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you need to cancel a reservation, please contact Kelsey Brice at 804-598-5700.
