•            Please send your child to school every day. Head Start/Early Head Start needs to keep their Average Daily Attendance 85% or above. Sending your child to school every day will help us maintain that. Plus, your child will learn new fun things every day.

•            If your child is going to be absent, please make sure that you are contacting your child’s Teaching staff to let them know.

•            Our HS/EHS enrollment changes a lot so if you have a child on the wait list and are missing some information, please get that information in so that when we call you to let you know that your child can start we won’t have to wait for missing information.

•            If you have any questions about any of our announcements, please contact your Family Advocate or Debb LeRoy – ERSEA Manager, or Victoria Burnette – Family Advocate/ERSEA Assistant at (605) 747-2391.

Announcements from ERSEA Area: 

According to the Head Start Performance Standards, The Head Start/Early Head Start Program must maintain an 85% Average Daily Attendance for each day. If your child is going to be absent please contact your Child’s Teacher and let them know. Attendance is VERY important and we must adhere to the HS Performance Standards. Just a reminder when you don’t let your child’s Classroom staff know that your child wont be in the Teachers will be calling you the parents to see why the child isn’t there. If your child misses two consecutive days the Family Advocate will be out to do a home visit to let you know of the importance of attending school. If the child is still not attending an Attendance Contract will be signed by you the parent, the Family Advocate and the ERSEA Manager. The Family Advocate will do what she can to assist the child to make sure the child is going to school. Please work with the Classroom Staff and the Family Advocates to ensure that your child is getting the best education and be ready for Kindergarten.
