According to Executive Order #20-82, Albert Lea Area Schools will provide the child care for our students under the following circumstances:
The school-age care for children of critical workers is intended for extreme circumstances in which no parent or guardian is at home, as all of the parents or legal guardians in the child's household are Tier 1 critical workers. If it is a two-parent household and one is not a critical worker, a school is not required to provide free school-age care to the family, but the school could choose to provide the care, if they have the capacity to do so while ensuring health and safety requirements can still be met.
The district will continue to provide Tier 1 child care on January 6th, 7th, and 8th at Hawthorne Elementary. We will also provide Tier 1 child care throughout the remainder of the school year on Fridays.
