NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A popular program in our area is getting back on its feet now that the feds have temporarily taken over classes.

New Hanover County's Head Start classes resumed Tuesday, according to officials.

A letter was sent home letting parents know class would be in session at Dorothy B. Johnson Elementary School located at 1100 McRae Street.

Children were assigned a classroom with the same staff and teachers students had at the end of September, according to the letter.

Officials let parents know that buses are not running at the moment. Until further notice, no bus transportation will be provided.

Head Start lost an appeal for funding last month after failing to comply with federal standards.
