“Beyond the Bell: New After School Program in Clay County Starts on November 28th
Clay County Health Department is excited to be starting an after-school program for students in 5th grade through 17 years of age. The Teen REACH center was closed in the summer of 2015 due to the State budget impasse, but will now open again in a new location and with a new name! The new program will be called “Beyond the Bell” and it will be located at the old Washington School in Flora (444 S. Locust). Enroll and find more information here: Link to program page”
