Dear TLC Families, Volunteers, and Friends, Teton Literacy Center Board and Staff have been closely monitoring the covid-19 virus to be prepared and make the best decisions for our families and this community. At this time, we are cancelling all Teton Literacy Center programs March 16th through April 5th. Programs will potentially resume after Spring Break on April 6th. We will notify families via email if programs are closed longer. We will strive to follow the TCSD calendar.
We will continue to be a resource for local families during this isolating time. We have provided information on our website and below that will help families with getting updated and important information. We are setting up a book give away outside of the center, so please come by and grab some books to take home and read. They are yours to keep! We will also be sending an email later this week with at home learning ideas and activities.
Our staff will be working from home, so please contact us via email. If you need an immediate response, please call me on my cell phone below.
