Virtual Head Start Begins Sept. 14

posted 9/7/20 -- Planning for the 2020-2021 school year has been very challenging due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

LCCAA had to make some difficult decisions to maintain the highest quality and most comprehensive services available to our families. Your child’s health and safety is our number one priority.

Since space is limited for our center-based services, LCCAA Head Start will offer a virtual learning experience where your child can still learn and thrive. Virtual learning using the platform ClassTag begins Sept. 14.

Virtual learning and support will be provided at home through interactive lessons by LCCAA teachers, educational programs and your child’s first teacher – YOU! When parents are partners in their child’s education, everyone wins.

This virtual learning option includes all the typical services children at LCCAA Head Start Centers receive including an assigned Family Service Worker to assist with resources, referrals and forms.

Virtual students will also receive nutrition and health services including weekly food distributions. All the same screenings done at our centers will also be accomplished.

In addition to a weekly call or virtual meeting with a teacher, you will have access to daily read-alouds, daily literacy lessons, program enhancements (music, tae kwon do, etc.) and other virtual services you can use at your convenience. Each child will receive both an art kit and a music kit so they have access to supplies needed for activities.

If you know someone who wants to sign up for the virtual learning option, the first step is to visit our website and fill out the Quick Application:
