When the Governor issued his order to close schools, he also included a provision to provide childcare services to specific families. In order to support critical care providers and vulnerable students, Walla Walla Public Schools will offer free, student-aged childcare supervision at all school sites from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Eligible children include current WWPS students whose parent(s)/guardian(s) are first responders who otherwise do not have coverage, students identified as homeless and students with significant disabilities. The district has expanded the definition of first responders to include any student whose parent/guardian works for a medical provider or in the medical field, police officers, firefighters, rescuers, military personnel, critical prison personnel, or key public works personnel. The childcare program will follow social distancing guidelines, offer nutritional services and provide a learning environment. Transportation will be available upon request. For more information, contact Pam Clayton at 509-526-6730 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Walla Walla Public Schools is also finalizing its plan for the continuation of education for all students, from preschool to high school, during the campus closure event. Learning plans and programs are set to be communicated on Tuesday, March 17 to ensure all students remain engaged in their learning, continue to earn credits, and remain on track for graduation.
