Virtual Classroom

As COVID-19 regulations will allow, all Head Start and Early Head Start classrooms will operate in-person for the 2021-22 school year. Classrooms will move between in-person and virtual models if COVID exposures occur. 

While classrooms operate virtually due to COVID exposure, teachers will provide virtual circle/story times, Ready Rosie and Kahn Academy access, and educational materials and activities for children to use at home.
