Governor Abbott announced today (April 17, 2020) that all schools in Texas are to remain closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 term. We will be follow that order with our Head Start program. At this time, we are hoping to reopen our Early Head Start program as soon as authorities advise that this is safe. Thank you and stay safe.
