Dear parents,

We know this time for your family may be difficult and unique in its challenges, as we all deal with the COVID-19 closures and social distancing. We are going to do what we can to help! Your center staff will continue to be in communication throughout any closure period to support you. We will also be providing resources on this website, and on Facebook at this link: https://www.facebook.com/DubuqueHeadStart, so you have options for continued learning for your child, and direct links to resources for other needs your family may have.

Please see below for topic area sections, and as always please reach out directly to your center staff for anything else you need.

Status of Center Closures

All Dubuque, Delaware and Jackson County Head Start centers are closed at this time due to COVID-19. 

We will follow the closure schedule of the public schools where your Head Start center is located.  As long as the public schools are closed due to COVID-19, the Head Start centers will remain closed. At this time, the Governor has ordered that schools close the remainder of the school year. We will remain in ongoing contact with you, and provide any services your child and family needs until the last scheduled day of our program year, which is May 25, 2020.

You can check back here for updates on center closures and openings in the future.

Parent and Child Learning Resource

This area includes a link to a list of several learning opportunities for you and your child to do together! Your child’s teacher is also available to speak with you by phone call to support any lesson you would like more information about from these resources.
