COVID-19 Update

March 23, 2020



Dear Sprague and Lamont Families:


During our long-term school closure, daycare may be critically important so frontline healthcare workers and first responders can focus on slowing the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Beginning Wednesday, March 25, Sprague and Lamont School Districts will be offering daycare services for any of our local healthcare workers and first responders for their children between the ages of four and fourth grade. This service will be offered at Sprague School on an as-needed basis on most weekdays from the hours of 7:45 AM to 3:30 PM.


It has been indicated by OSPI that the following definitions of “healthcare workers” and “first responders” should be used:


·       Members of the healthcare workforce, as defined by the Washington State Medical Association, includes people who work in any setting where healthcare services, long-term care, long-term services and supports, or personal care are delivered. This includes, but is not limited to, hospitals, clinics, behavioral health centers, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult family homes, and personal homes.

·       First responders, as defined in RCW 70.54.430, includes firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical personnel, as licensed or certificated by the state.


If you and/or your significant other fall into one of the two categories as defined above and are in need of daycare for any of your children between the ages of four and fourth grade, please contact the offices of Sprague or Lamont School Districts at the phone numbers listed above. It is asked that you please call 24 hours in advance of needing daycare services. Due to our personnel limitations, we will be unable to offer daycare services outside of the normal business hour times of 7:45 AM to 3:30 PM, on weekends, or during the week of April 3 through April 10.
