Day cares can remain open

Day care centers have been deemed as essential businesses because they support the workforce. Day cares were not affected by Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order to close schools through April 3.

Two of the three major day care centers in Mount Vernon, Rainbow Connection and This Little Light Learning Center (TLLLC) are open. Kids Under Construction closed starting Monday, March 23, for two weeks to re-evaluate their next step. See the March 26 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more information.
