Latchkey Service

Dear parents,

Latchkey will remain in operation while Dublin City Schools is in session, with some alterations to our procedures to promote safety. As we all face the challenge of the virus COVID-19 to our community, please be assured we are taking our best possible measures, informed by daily developments, to protect your child’s safety while in our care.  The CDC has developed “Interim Guidance for Administrators of U.S. Childcare Programs and K-12 Schools to Plan, Prepare, and Respond to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)” to assist us through the process of handling COVID-19.  We are following this guidance, and will follow any other guidance from health and government authorities as the situation develops.

We will be altering our pick up and drop off so that the parents will sign in/out in the breezeway between the double doors of the building. A staff member will assist your child with the transition to and from the door. This change will limit contact from parents to the group children.

In the event Dublin City Schools closes schools, we will follow suit in that building or as a whole.    The decisions made will be made with children’s safety foremost in mind, with the safety of all staff and parents and the network of our community as well.  We will communicate with you as needed and welcome your questions as we work through this challenging time for all of us.

We understand the impact this may have on your family.  We will gather a list of people that we will make available who may be willing to provide home care in their personal capacities if you would like to contact them to make arrangements.  Such private arrangements and services are not a service of Latchkey, and persons willing to provide home care are not acting in their capacity as Latchkey employees, nor does Latchkey oversee such arrangements.  Latchkey expressly disclaims any liability for any such arrangement.  Latchkey does not recommend or endorse any personal services which may be provided through private arrangements.

We will keep you updated as the situation unfolds.
