    SFUSD also shut down.

  2. Cay N. says:

    How crazy!! I can’t believe all the school closures my kids need to be in school! I’m using WeeCare for childcare right because I think they test the daycares in LA for kids with fevers and there app shows which schools are healthy. Hopefully they help me find something. I def need care but want my kids to be safe!! https://weecare.co/daycare-near-me

  3. Concerned Faculty says:

    Not completely true at Cal Poly Pomona where faculty are being instructed to conduct a survey among students before Wed 3/18. Even if one student decides to continue attending, faculty are required to go to the classroom and conduct both face-to-face AND provide digital materials to those students to choose not to.
    To prevent retaliation (a common practice in this campus) I am posting anonymously. This policy makes no sense as is putting faculty at risk, leaving absolute control to students. This is against the social distancing that the CDC is currently recommending. So NO. Cal Poly Pomona so far is NOT transitioning to Online as stated in this article.

    Cay N. So glad you shared this!!! WeeCare was able to help me find care for my 2 kids. I am a nurse and can not miss work right now. Sophie at WeeCare was very helpful and found an in home daycare for me same day.

  5. Patricia says:

    yes my sister also used weecare over the weekend since she needed someone to watch her 8 year old starting yesterday and they placed him in 1 day! They do do fever checks thank goodness. This whole thing is so stressful, I am so worried about how long the schools are going to be closed for!

  6. Brianna Duran says:

    May God protect us all during this time! Its so sad to hear about all the closures and everything that is happening! Guys please take proactive measure to keep yourself safe and your little ones! I found a great location for my child during this time of need. I have to work and I didnt have anyone that was able to take care of her. Check out https://weecare.co/daycare-near-me
    They helped me find a great day care. Theyre taking proactive measures to stay safe and keep our little ones safe as well. Take care everyone.
