Thanks to a grant, Community Action's Head Start programming is going to be offering summer programming.
Executive Director Alison Rumler-Gomez tells Regional Radio News the purpose of summer programming is to get kids back into a classroom setting before they return to school in the fall and make up for the lost instruction time from the coronavirus.
Rumler-Gomez says Head Start is allowing a lot of flexibility in how their sites work the classroom setting but they are asking kids to wear masks, maintain social distancing of six-feet, and classroom sizes are limited to ten students.
There are plenty of spots available for the summer head start programming. Rumler-Gomez points anyone interested in getting their child registered to visit their website, capcil.info, or call 217-732-2159.
