Dear ECC families,

I’m sure you have heard that we will NOT be in session beginning tomorrow, March 18, 2020 until at least April 6, 2020.  During the next few weeks, the district administrators will be monitoring the COVID-19 situation and making plans for the future which will be communicated to everyone by Friday, April 3, 2020.  Please check the district’s website at for further updates. Our Facebook page is Cape Tiny Tigers Early Childhood Center. Our ECC teachers will also send messages via SeeSaw about when we may be returning to school.

Beginning Wednesday, March 18, the district will be providing meals for free to any child age 18 or under at our five elementary schools Monday - Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m..  

Those locations are listed below:

Our ECC family will miss each other greatly during these two weeks. I encourage you to do some fun activities with your children at home as well as READ lots of books together! We hope to see you soon!
