                               COVID-19 Update 09/02/2020:


We regret to inform our local homeschool community that the ECHO Co-op will remain temporarily closed for Fall 2020, in large part due to low enrollment caused by concerns over COVID-19.  Concerns voiced by homeschooling families about COVID-19, in conjunction with the upcoming flu season,  led to the decision to delay re-opening the ECHO Co-op until January 2021.  The weekly classroom activities scheduled for Fall 2020 will be used in Spring 2021, if conditions allow the ECHO Co-op to re-open in January 2021.  Please continue to check the ECHO website (www.echo-onslow.org) or the ECHO Facebook page at echo.homeschool for updates in the coming weeks.  Thank you for your continued patience as ECHO works to re-open safely in January 2021.
