    Earlywood Educational Services is closed until further notice due to COVID-19. 
    New Connections will be 
    operating on an @home learning plan through the end of the school year.
    The COVID-19 outbreak is an unprecedented situation. Earlywood and our member school districts are making decisions as the situation unfolds. Our first priority is for the health and safety of our students, staff, and community. If you have questions about your child's IEP, services, or other aspects of special education, I encourage you to contact your child's special education teacher, the school district special education director, or myself. Please know that we're working hard to maintain communication and deliver services to the greatest extent possible. 
    Your grace and patience is greatly appreciated. 
    Dr. Angie Balsley
