SEATTLE — With all of Washington’s 1.2 million students now sitting out school for the next six weeks amid the COVID-19 outbreak, many parents are likely racing to figure out what to do when it comes to child care.
In King County, Boys and Girls Clubs will be extending hours and programs at 12 of its centers as an option to families looking for a place to turn. “For those families that need us most or for first responder families. we’ll be providing some activities, snacks, lunch,” said Brandee Paisano, an area director for six sites. “This is a comfort and they know we are taking every precaution that we know of at this time to provide that place for them.”
