Westchester County Emergency Declaration

Dear Sunshine Families,

As I suspect most of you know, Westchester County expects to declare a county-wide state of emergency. This will put county officials in a position to make decisions quickly and respond expeditiously to a highly dynamic situation. Based on what we have seen in other jurisdictions, we expect that this will also involve a prolonged school closure — seven states and Washington DC have already closed all schools. We are speaking and coordinating with local and state officials to determine the best course of action for Sunshine Starts. We need to ask for your patience as we work through this difficult situation. We will be sending further updates later today. During this difficult time, we promise to communicate frequently and in a transparent way so that you understand how and why we make the decisions we make.
