Program Information 

What to do when:


Your child is absent or tardy:

Please call or email the Head Start Nurse if your child is going to be tardy or absent. 

You can also report an absence on our website using the "Report an Absence" button on our main page.

We are required to contact you when your child is absent for three or more consecutive days.

If you have extenuating circumstances, please contact your Family Service Provider or the Head Start Nurse to discuss a solution and ensure your child makes it to school. 


Inclement Weather & Early Dismissals: 

On days when the school has a delayed opening, Head Start follows this schedule: 

AM 3-year-olds: Do not attend school 

PM 3-year-olds: attend per SMCPS delayed arrival schedule 

Full Day 3s & 4s: attend according to SMCPS delayed arrival schedule 

Early dismissal days: Head Start students do not attend school on regular early dismissal days. In the case of early dismissal for inclement weather, you will be contacted to be kept updated on the procedure.
