Parents Need Flexibility

May 15, 2023

Last week two Detroit area schools were closed due to unexplained illnesses at both schools. Authorities say that the schools are not connected in any way, yet multiple kindergartners are getting severely sick, with one death. School officials say that schools will be closed for a few days for a “deep cleaning” before children are able to return.

Working parents are once again hustling to find child care without there being any answers. Where are the emergency child care services? Where are the breakfast and lunch services?

Parents are forced to find their own solutions to problems they didn’t create. Wish management was as flexible as schools require parents to be.
