Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)

CDC Parents


IMPORTANT UPDATE: The CDC is currently closed through April 3rd. CDC staff will provide any updates directly to the parents.

The CDC will not charge patrons for services during the closure period. Any accounts which have already have been paid will be credited at a later date. Any future billing will not occur until the center has reopened.  

I understand this is frustrating and that this decision will inconvenience our families that we serve; however, this was the best decision to maintain the safety and well-being of our children in the CDC.
