Child Care for Essential Workers

  • Dear Parents/Guardians, 

    The Floral Park-Bellerose School District has partnered with SCOPE Education Services to provide Emergency Child Care to First Responders, Medical Care providers and other Essential workers as designated by Governor Cuomo during the school closure due to COVID-19.  Any parents working in these professions who are critical to the response effort to this outbreak with school age children and need child care can enroll their child(ren) in this program.

    For additional information, please see the links below to the "Emergency Child Care Informational/Instruction Sheet" and to the "Frequently Asked Questions" pages of the SCOPE website:
