Important COVID-19 related announcement about Summer ECFE
Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) has altered its original summer schedule. Classes scheduled to run six weeks starting the week of June 14th have been changed to four-week classes that begin on July 7th.  In addition, we have added online options for families to participate together as well as parent-only evening classes.  Our Park Play Dates have been cancelled. Please watch for newly developed outdoor experiences for ECFE families.

Changes in programs will be reflected when registration for ECFE classes opens, Thursday 5/28 at 8:00 a.m.

If you have already registered for classes our program staff will be in touch over the next week to confirm your registration and adjust pricing to reflect a shorter session. For information on Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) email ECFE@isd194.org.
