Essential Child Care

Lapeer County Intermediate School District (LCISD) is working in cooperation with state and local partners to support the Executive Order issued by Governor Whitmer EO 2020-16 - Expanding child care access during the COVID-19 emergency .  LCISD is working to ensure the following two priorities are addressed immediately:

  1. Identify and monitor the existing capacity of local child care providers who are able to provide emergency care to essential workers. Here is a link to the child care providers that have openings at this time. 2. Connect “essential workers” in need of childcare with existing child care providers who have the capacity to provide care for their children.  A survey has been developed to help identify the need in our community:  http://bit.ly/COV19Childcaresurvey.  If you have completed the survey from LCISD, you do not need to complete the “Help Me Grow” survey.  Please check your email for communication from Becca Robertson

If you need to speak with someone about either FINDING or PROVIDING Child care, please call or email Becca Robertson  rrobertson@lapeerisd.org or (810) 245-3963

 

Lapeer ISD is also working with the local school district community to put in place contingency plans to open emergency child care centers in school facilities.  At this time, these facilities will only be activated if the pressure on the existing child care capacity is exceeded. Our first priority is to support existing providers who have the capacity to provide care for the essential workforce

Please share this information with members of the essential workforce who may need child care as they support our community during this emergency.

 

Thank you and please stay safe.
