Chickasaw Nation Head Start, Preschool Delays Start Of In-Person Instruction

The Chickasaw Nation's Head Start program and preschool will have distance learning and virtual instruction for the first nine weeks of the school year.

The nation cited health safety concerns and will affect all four centers in Ada, Ardmore, Sulphur and Tishomingo.

Virtual instruction will begin on August 17. In-person instruction will begin when the community spread of COVID-19 is low enough to ensure the safety of the children.
