Local Head Start in need of teacher
May 10, 2017
The future of the Rocky Mountain Development Council Head Start program in Whitehall is up in the air.
At an informational meeting last week, program director Ashley Pena-Larsen said they are facing the issue of not having a primary teacher/family advocate for the 2017-18 school year. Pena-Larsen stated if they don't find a replacement for current teacher/family advocate Elaine Henningsen, they could not open the classroom next year. She added at this point, if they do not get someone hired by the June 2 deadline, they may need to make the decision to close out of necessity.
