Chandler USD announced March 25 that it will offer child care for workers in emergency or essential fields. To qualify for care, parents or guardians must be either a medical care worker, a senior care employee, a first responder, a pharmacist, a grocer or food delivery worker, or a member of the military. Valid proof of employment must be provided to the district.

A registered nurse will be available on-site, and the staffing ratio meets both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Department of Health Services recommendations, according to district officials. Superintendent Camille Casteel told the governing board in a virtual meeting March 25 that strict cleaning procedures will be performed at the site as well.

"We believe we are in pretty good shape," Casteel said during the meeting. "Word is just now getting out that we have two sites open and that we are working provide this to workers."

Infants through students in sixth grade are eligible for care Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. at a cost of $25 per day, or $115 per week. Costs can be paid on a daily or weekly basis, and sibling discounts are available. Children will be served breakfast, lunch and snacks.
