Mayor Malik D. Evans announced that the City’s R-Centers will shift to a daytime schedule and host special programs over the February Recess to provide children and youth fun and engaging activities when many parents are at work. “Every kid loves a week off from school, but mid-year breaks can be a source of concern for working parents who may struggle to find childcare options,” said Mayor Evans. “R-Centers offer fun and engaging programs during the workday to keep Rochester’s youth healthy, safe, and learning over the February Recess. I encourage everyone to take advantage of these neighborhood treasures and enjoy a stress free break while their kids have fun and stay busy with caring adults.” City R-Centers will be closed Monday, Feb. 20 for Presidents Day, but will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21 through Friday, Feb. 24. R-Centers—typically open during after-school and evening hours during the school year—offer a wide array of healthy and productive ways to stay active, including basketball courts, game rooms, fitness centers, computer and educational programs. The R-Centers will provide meals for participants during February Recess.
