All employees must complete a background check, physical, TB test and drug screen before employment begins. A negative marijuana drug test is NOT a requirement for employment.

The Office of Head Start requires all Next Door employees to be fully vaccinated. As this is being mandated by the federal government, which funds our programs, Next Door does not have flexibility in the policy. If you are offered a position at Next Door, you will be required to show proof of vaccination before your start date.
