Happy Holidays!!!

Growth Measurements

Just a reminder that Early Head Start second measurements are due before Christmas Break. Head Start children are not due until the end of January. If you have any questions, please contact Julian.

Amendment to Health and Safety Policy and Procedures

All advocates were provided a copy of the Health and Safety Policy and Procedures at the beginning of the school year. The only update at this time is to the Physical/Well Baby section. On item 3b the last sentence will now state, "After seven (7) days, the child will not be permitted into a center until a physical/well baby check is provided."

The change was made to clarify that the child is still enrolled but not permitted to attend until licensure requirements are met.


Just a reminder to please notify Bobbie of any time you intend to take off through the holidays.

Family Partnerships

Another reminder, if you haven't already updated these, please begin doing so. This needs to be reviewed and updated periodically. If you have any questions, please contact Bobbie.

Parent Point Tracker

Everyone should have their links and be utilizing this. If you are having any trouble, please contact Julian or Bobbie.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks again for all the hard work you do. All of you have worked well this first part of the school year to help our children have the best experience possible in Head Start. I hope you look forward to the second half!

Have a wonderful holiday with your friends and family!!!
