*PLEASE NOTE* We are trying to limit visitors in our main office and ask that we continue to place items to be picked up/dropped off in lobby and you call when arriving as we have been doing the past couple months. However, if coming into the office is necessary, our office is screening all visitors and they must sign in and have temperature checked upon entry of our office. We ask that if you have traveled outside the U.S. in the last 14 days; had close contact with a sick person; or if you have fever, cough, difficulty breathing and/or shortness of breath that you DO NOT ENTER our office.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. We hope you & your families are doing well. Stay safe, everyone. And please reach out to us if you need anything. ***
We will be updating you all as we receive more information on postponed or canceled events.
Volunteers that have not completed their trainings – Please go back in and try to complete your trainings. To do this, when you log in, go to the left side list of options and click on Trainings. There will be two trainings listed for you to complete. They are REQUIRED for you to be a volunteer. Also, for families, if one of your children was not approved, please go back in and try to submit enrollment again for your child that was not approved. The system cannot accept them back to back. I was informed that 4-H Online was made in Mozilla Firefox so it works best if you use Mozilla Firefox as your web browser. Chrome works okay, but Internet Explorer has a lot of problems with 4-H Online.
