Dear Head Start families,


Thank you for your flexibility and patience as our response to COVID-19 has been rapidly evolving each day. As a trusted community preschool, Schuyler Head Start continues to make the safety of our students and staff the main focus of our decision making process. We have been working to plan and respond to this emerging issue. Our Health Manager has been following the Centers for Disease Control, Office of Children and Family Services, Office of Head Start, and County Public Health as to their recommendations for an appropriate response to this pandemic.

Although there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Schuyler County at this time, we have been decided that temporarily suspending our programming would be the best course of action to help prevent outbreak in our community.  To that end, center-based classroom programming in the Watkins Glen Elementary School and the Montour Falls Human Services building and Early Head Start home-based programming will be suspended from Monday, March 16 through Monday, April 13.

We will continue to communicate additional details in the coming days. We appreciate your cooperation during this challenging time and we will be thinking about all of you.
