District’s child care services starts today

DIXON – The district will begin offering child care services at 7:20 this morning.

Attendance is not required, and it will not count as a school day because there will be no instruction.

Margo Empen, assistant superintendent, said Friday that more than 50 students are signed up for the child care, which will be provided by the district’s administrators and paraprofessionals.

As of Friday afternoon, all parents had been notified where their children were going. Parents must provide transportation and lunches. For safety reasons, they must drop off and pick up their students, Empen said.

The district is using its three elementary schools to place students close to home. Siblings are paired together.

Students will rotate between activities that include movies, computers, arts and crafts, and library time.

Parents still can register by calling the district office at 815-284-7722 or by going online to www.dixonschools.org to fill out forms.
