Message About Coronavirus

Dear Friends,

Due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and in light of local, state, and federal guidance, the Orange County Partnership for Young Children is moving forward with care and caution to minimize exposure and ensure the health and safety of our employees, our clients, and our partners while we continue to operate.

Beginning today, March 17, 2020, until further notice, we are conducting all business by phone and email. We are closing our physical location to the public at this time. All OCPYC-hosted meetings, site visits, trainings, and events will be conducted virtually, rescheduled or cancelled until further notice. Unfortunately, this means that our Young Children’s Art Contest Award Ceremony scheduled for April 19 is postponed. We will reschedule it as soon as possible. Rest assured that we have made arrangements to check mail and process payments with no disruption of service.

We can be reached by phone at 919-967-9091. Staff will be monitoring voicemail. We can be reached by email at the following addresses:

programs@orangesmartstart.org – for questions about our current Smart Start and NC Pre-K activities

ocpyc@orangesmartstart.org – for general questions

Staff will be monitoring their individual emails as well. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in our community and provide updates as needed on Facebook (@OCPYC), Twitter (@OCsmartstart), and our website, www.orangesmartstart.org.

Stay safe and healthy!

Robin Pulver
Executive Director
Orange County Partnership for Young Children
