The Government shutdown is can be felt in Wiregrass Schools.
The Dothan City Head Start Program is federally funded. On Wednesday, the program met with concerned parents.
The School Board voted to provide the money necessary to keep school doors open until Nov. 5, but parents are still concerned.
“We are a community, Dothan, Alabama is a small community compared to Washington D.C. but we need to let them know that we as the people do love our children and their education comes first,” said Tiffany Blackmon, a parent of a Head Start student.
There are 45 Head Start employees and more than 300 students in the Dothan school.
