HERNDON — After 38 years of giving young children a head start, the preschool at Faith Lutheran Church on Route 225 is closing its doors due to new regulations the state has issued in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“This was not an easy decision, as we have had the preschool since 1982,” church secretary Virginia Shrawder wrote in an announcement to The News-Item. “It has been an awesome experience reaching out to these children.”
