Falcon Kids Care/Foley Public Schools will be providing child care for students school-ages 5-12 enrolled in our district.  Governor declared Tier 1 Critical Workers will have first priority (EO 20-82 listed below).  Please click here for Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) Guidance states:
The school-age care for children of critical workers is intended for extreme circumstances in which no parent or guardian is at home, due to employment as a critical worker. The free child care is to be made available when the only parent or both parents in the household are employed as critical workers.”

Under these guidelines, care on distance learning days will be prioritized in the order listed below: 

  1. Priority 1: Families in which the only parent/guardian or both parents/guardians in the household are employed as Tier 1 critical workers who work outside the home. 

  2. Priority 2: Families in which one parent/guardian in the household is employed as a Tier 1 critical worker who works outside the home & current Falcon Kids Care families.

  3. Priority 3:If any spots remain families outside of Tier 1 will be added in the order registrations are received. This will include our free/reduced families.
