Cajon Valley School District Offering Free Emergency Child Care for Essential Workers

April 9, 2020

This is awesome! 

Starting on April 20, the Cajon Valley School District is offering free emergency child care for essential workers who have kids enrolled in the district's schools.

Superintendent David Miyashiro told Fox 5 San Diego, "Child care under these circumstances is not something we've ever done before," but he wanted to help parents who are essential workers and need help with their kids.

Worried about social distancing? Superintendent Miyashiro says, "Our classrooms are quite large, and when there's only five or six people in them, it'd be quite easy to set up comfortable learning spaces and activities where kids can engage and just not be close to each other.
