Wainscott School

School Board meeting tonight July 1st at 6:15 pm

Dear School Districts, Health Agencies, and the Parents and Caregivers who are deemed NYS “Essential Workers”,

Eleanor Whitmore Early Childhood Center Information for Essential Workers

Dear School Districts, Health Agencies, and the Parents and Caregivers who are deemed NYS “Essential Workers”: The education, health and happiness of children is the greatest priority of the Eleanor Whitmore Early Childhood Center. Our Center was contacted by representatives from the Governors Office, the Suffolk County Executive’s Office, and the East Hampton Town Supervisor’s Office asking if the Center could open for what New York State has identified as “Essential Workers/Essential Business” during this current State of Emergency. The Center will follow these government offices’ call and open beginning Wednesday March 25 for both our currently enrolled EWECC families and other families and caregivers who fall under the NYS list of “Essential Workers” with school age children in need of daycare.

Governor Cuomo has ordered all New York State public schools to be closed through March 31, 2020.  As of today, we have not yet been informed about being closed for an additional period of time.  We will contact you if and when we receive further information from the Governor’s Office.

We are also receiving different interpretations about whether or not we will be required to use our snow days and Spring break to account for the time that we are ordered to be closed.  Our teachers provided parents with work for these two weeks.  If you wish to use this week as your break, please feel free to do so.

We will continue to support your child’s learning to the best of our ability through these unprecedented times.

Stay well,
Deborah A Haab
