NEON to remain open through the week

NORWALK - Norwalk's anti-poverty agency NEON says its child care services will be open for the rest of the week.

They say parents should drop off their kids at the usual locations.

It comes after the federal government took control of the Head Start program away from NEON last week over concerns about how it was being run.

A Colorado-based company will eventually take over.

There is no word on when the new operation will begin.
