Child Care

Dear Families,

This message is to notify you that we are working in partnership with our county's Child Care Resource & Referral (CCR&R) agency, which has updated information about available healthcare during school closures related to COVID-19. The CCR&Rs will provide information on childcare providers to any parents seeking it and will provide enhanced referrals for HEALTH CARE WORKERS, FIRST RESPONDERS, and ESSENTIAL employees deemed by the Governor. Enhanced referrals will include facilitating the process of finding an available slot so that parents in these crucial service professions have less legwork to do. To access this service, please contact the CCR&R from the list below that servers the county WHERE YOU LIVE.

We would like to take this moment to thank all of our health care professionals and first responders for your dedication to your communities during this unprecedented time.
