COVID-19 Precautions

Smart Start of Mecklenburg County has implemented precautions for the safety of our staff and families we serve. Beginning March 17, 2020 through March 31, 2020 SSMC staff will be working remotely. Management will closely monitor the situation and adjust these dates as needed. If you need assistance, please call our main line at (704) 377-6588 or email your main point of contact, if applicable. All messages will be returned within 48 hours, though likely sooner.

It’s important to note closures apply to MECK Pre-K as well. MECK Pre-K Centers will close for a minimum of 15 days, effective Tuesday, March 16 through Tuesday, March 31, 2020.

Please keep yourself and others safe by following precautions outlined by the Center for Disease Control.
