Teacher Walk-Out ResourcesExtended Hours at Recreation Facilities During Teacher Walk-Out:

In response to school closures due to a statewide walk-out of teachers and other education staff, the city of Phoenix will extend hours at 24 of its recreation centers on Thursday, April 26 and Friday, April 27.

Those facilities will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., to provide a safe option for families with children ages 6 to 17 who are affected by the closures.

While no formal programming is planned, online pre-registration is strongly encouraged and will be available starting at 4 p.m. today, Tuesday, April 24.

Pre-registration is encouraged as a limited number of lunches can be provided at some locations.  For those who do not pre-register, participants are requested to bring a non-perishable lunch. 

Depending on the facility, non-structured activities such as board games, sports, arts and crafts, and movies may be offered.

Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department staff will operate the centers as drop-in only, meaning that sign-in and sign-out is not required, and each parent or guardian dropping off a child will be required to sign a waiver and provide contact information.
