Update 11/16/2020

With community cases of COVID-19 rising, the School Board voted on Nov. 9 to shift to a more restrictive learning model including canceling or limiting in-person programs.

The following Community Education programs will be canceled beginning Nov. 21:
  • Aquatics 
  • Adult Enrichment 
  • Youth Enrichment 
Processing of refunds/vouchers will take place over the next couple of weeks. 

These are difficult decisions that are made with the most informed interest of public health and to ensure the safety and well-being of our students and staff. 

Throughout the pandemic, student and staff safety remains our top priority while adhering to state and local public health guidance and the 2020-21 Safe Learning Plan.

Online and offsite classes will continue as scheduled.  Check our registration site often to see what is available.

Early Learning

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is based on the idea that parents provide their child's first and most significant learning environment and parents are the children's first and most enduring teachers.
ECFE works to support you as a parent/caregiver and to strengthen and empower families.  The goal is to enhance the ability of all parents and other family members to provide the best possible environments for their child's learning and development.
