PRIME TIME Head Start in Ouachita Parish brings a relentless focus on positive child and family outcomes to close the achievement gap and build bright futures for the children, families, and communities served by the Head Start program.

Update on fall 2020 reopening

PRIME TIME Head Start is committed to keeping those we serve safe, supporting student learning, and meeting family needs when we re-open in the fall. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, Louisiana Department of Education, Louisiana Department of Health, and the Office of Head Start. Our leadership team is participating within re-opening forums and is planning training for all staff. Additionally, our plan is in line with Louisiana’s Covid-19 Phase Status.

With Louisiana currently in Phase 2 of reopening, we are set to open this fall under the “Family Choice” option. Students are able to attend full-day onsite (Class sizes limited to 15 children with 2 adults) or virtual classes.

We encourage all currently enrolled families and families who have applied to attend this fall to review our “High Five” Reopening Plan and our Reopening FAQ for additional information.
