    Additional Preschool Updates:

    Preschool Program: For 2021-2022, Preschool classes are scheduled to operate in person under the enhanced health and safety regulations for licensed child care.  The Preschool Program operates under the NC Division of Child Development (DCDEE) through the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).  All licensed childcare facilities have been authorized to operate as essential businesses through DCDEE.  Additional changes in operations, such as transitions to remote learning, are at the discretion of Asheville City Schools leadership. 

    Our Health and Safety Handbook outlines how our Preschool classrooms are integrating the current licensed child care health and safety protocols.
