Annabelle Rico 2019The new Policy Council Officers were elected on September 18th.  Annabelle Rico is the new President and she will represent our school. The Policy Council is responsible for the direction of the agency’s Head Start and Early Head Start programs.

Congratulations to our new Policy Council Officers!


Children should always go out trick or treating accompanied by a responsible adult. If you have a group of kids going, the parents should choose two or three of them to go along and keep an eye on things.

Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you. This way you can check for any problem candy and get the pick of the best stuff!

Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into their car. Explain why this is not a good idea and what to do if someone approaches them and tries to talk to them.
