Updates Regarding REACH Prep and COVID-19

The REACH Prep office is closed until further notice and until deemed safe by local, state and federal officials for us to resume regular programming on site. As of Friday, March 13, 2020, all REACH Prep in-person programming and meetings were cancelled or postponed until further notice. Virtual learning methods are in place and all staff are working remotely to continue to provide services to our students and families. We understand that changes are happening quickly and that you may have questions about upcoming student programming and support for the days, weeks and months ahead. This website will be updated regularly with news and announcements as the situation and circumstances evolve.

The safety of our students and families is our most important concern and we continue to wish good health to everyone in the REACH Prep community.
