Head Start/Early Head Start

WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!!!

AUGUST 2022 NEWSLETTER

THE DIRECTORS' CORNER

The school hours for HS & EHS students are 7:45 a.m. – 2:45 p.m. The student’s arrival time is 7:45 a.m., and the departure time is 2:45 p.m. The only time Head Start and Early Head Start students should be checked out of school early is when they have a scheduled appointment or a family emergency. When students arrive late and are dismissed early, this interrupts daily routines and instructional time such as meals, daily schedules, lessons, activities, screenings, assessments, etc. Families, we need your assistance with adhering to the appropriate school hours for Head Start and Early Head Start students.
