Guide for parents with children at home due to COVID-19  

The announcement that most schools will start remotely in fall of 2020 creates additional challenges for working parents, as does caring for elderly or sick family members.  

King County has put together a new guide for parents with children at home whose school or childcare has closed because of COVID-19 to help them better understand their options for adjusting schedules and taking leave to care for family members. 

The Guidance for parents with children at home sets out several options for working parents, such as adjusted work schedules, the various leaves available, and accessing accrued time off. 

Please work with your supervisor and seek approval when pursuing any of the options in the guide, and consult your Human Resources Manager (SharePoint: employee access only) for more information.
