At this time, we continue to follow the State and Center for Disease Control guidance as it relates to taking precautionary actions as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Early Head Start and Head Start in-person center-based services will remain suspended through September 7th. We will stay in communication supporting our enrolled families with remote learning and at-home activities. We will also let you know when we are able to once again safely operate in-person center-based services. Please see our Coronavirus Info page for additional information regarding opening of our centers.
