Be Aware of Alta Head Start’s School Closing Policy

The bitterly cold weather that hit the Valley at the end of January is a reminder that parents should know what our policy is at Alta Head Start concerning school closings.

We understand that many parents still have to report to work even in the worst weather, so they may have concerns about where their child can go if schools close. So the bottom line is, unless you see a specific mention on TV or in other media that the Head Start or Early Head Start location your child attends will be closed, you can assume that it will be open.

The policy may differ depending on the type of Head Start classroom your child attends. See the graphic below for this information.
