“If you want grace, you need to give grace.” This was the closing comment from a representative from the Minnesota Dept of Health. She stated this, as we concluded a two-hour webinar I attended on the COVID-19 Decision Tree for Minnesota K-12 schools and childcare released in late August. Since the closing of Minnesota schools and Stay at Home Order in March, Gov. Walz has asked childcare to remain open; at first just for essential care workers for these eight weeks. We were given grace by the families at Laker Prep who stuck with us and helped keep ALL of our staff on payroll by paying for care they weren’t even using. The families who had children continue to attend through this order, rolled with the punches each week. We had to rehash ever changing guidelines and procedures placed on us to slow the spread of COVID-19.
