Ensuring the safety of your children is our number one priority at Head Start. We want your child/children to feel safe at school and get the best education possible.
Class Cancelations / Delays
Any decision to cancel classes or have a delayed start due to weather related closures and delays, will be broadcast on local television news channels and radio starting at 7AM. If your class uses the Remind app, announcements will also be made there.
Classroom staff are certified in CPR and administering first aid.
In case of an emergency we will contact you or your emergency contact in addition to any of these necessary resources below:
Emergency Services (9-1-1)
Emergency room or clinic
Health Consultant at Head Start, a Registered Nurse
You must inform us if your child is going to miss class or be delayed. Acceptable instances for not bringing a child in could be illness, medical appointments or other serious incidents. One scheduled vacation, absence or family visit of up to three calendar weeks is permitted in an academic year.
Room for Fun
We want families to have fun and to experience a joyful life. One scheduled vacation, family visit or other planned absence of up to three calendar weeks is allowed during a school year.
To ensure that your child is receiving a proper education, families will be expected to participate in alternative services during extended periods of absence. This may include lessons to work on at home or visits from the teacher (in-home or virtual).
