Next Door School Closure

Next Door School Closure

Next Door will be closed for children and families beginning Monday, March 16th due to concerns related to spreading the Coronavirus (COVID-19). A reopening date has not been set yet but we will keep our families posted as soon as we are able to determine a date based on guidance from state and local health officials.

As we understand the critical services we provide to our children and families, plans are in place for the distribution of food and supplies to our families throughout the closure. Next Door parents can pick up food, diapers, wipes, books and take-home educational materials on Mondays from 3 pm to 5 p.m. at both of our campuses – 29th Street and Capitol Drive.
