From Las Animas Head Start: Weather will be VERY cold today. The SAFETY of your children and our staff is always our top priority. Please be aware of the following in order to do your part in keeping everyone safe today: We will be having recess inside today, but please be sure to dress your child warmly with appropriate winter wear (coat, gloves, etc). Our usual Drop Off window will be shortened slightly this morning to protect staff from the cold weather. We will bring children in starting at 7:55 instead of 7:45. Please line up in the drive thru lane as usual, and REMAIN IN YOUR VEHICLE until you have reached the VERY FRONT of the line. This will help our line move more quickly and get children and staff into the heated building as quickly as possible. If you arrive after the 7:55 to 8 am window and staff are not visible outside, please STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE and CALL the center so we can come get your child and you are not having to wait in the cold at the door. 719-384-3180 Weather officials advise AGAINST walking in this weather. Please stay safe and we'll see you soon :)
