Keeping Our Kids Safe
Look Before You Lock!

On average, every 10 days a child dies from heatstroke in a vehicle. These deaths are preventable, and everyone in the community, especially Head Start and child care providers, has a role to play in protecting our children. In many cases, a simple communication plan between parents and child care/Head Start providers could save a child’s life.

Tiger Lilies
Lilies Bring Summer Color to Your Garden

Lilies are easy to grow, adding color and form to any garden. Bulbs can be planted in either spring or fall, from about mid-September through October. Fall planting is preferred, since it allows a longer period of time for root development before a flowering stalk is produced. If bulbs must be planted in spring, do it as early as possible.
