Is child care for medical employees and first responders being provided by schools?

During long-term school closures, child care will be critically important so frontline healthcare workers and first responders can focus on slowing the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Governor Inslee has communicated an expectation that school districts will make accommodations to provide child care for our healthcare and first responder families. Beyond serving these two groups, districts maintain the discretion to serve other students and families, so long as they have capacity and they adhere to social distancing guidelines to the best of their ability.
