Update March 27, 2020:
To add some additional information to our post from yesterday. Our direction to operate has come from the Ministry of Education; they have provided an outline on the tiers that essential service workers must fit into to meet the needs for childcare. In partnership with the Abbotsford School District we are following this tier system.
The tiers are as follows:
o Tier 1: HealthCare and Emergency Responders
o Tier 2: Social Workers, Service Canada Employees, Utility Workers, and
Food Chain Supply Employees
o Tier 3: Teachers and Childcare Employees
Hand in Hand will not be operating at all of our locations. If you are deemed an essential service employee please ensure that you have made contact with the administration office at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange care.
If you have not prearranged care with the admin office your child cannot attend the program.
