In light of the announcement that Department of Army Civilians will be furloughed 11 days beginning July 8, Family and MWR has made arrangements to offer reduced childcare fees for furloughed families during the 11-week period. FMWR hopes that this reduction will relieve some of the financial burden for Fort Irwin families during the furlough.
Parents who receive a furlough letter can bring it to CYSS Parent Central Services, located in building 109 in the Reception Campus on Langford Lake Road, to have their fee rate recalculated.
Fee reductions apply to children in regularly scheduled full-day, part-day and part-time programs during the furlough period. Fees will revert to the original pricing structure after the furlough has ended.
Fee reductions will not apply to SKIES Unlimited, Youth Sports, Family Child Care, or other community-based programs.
For more information, call Martina Shipman at 380-4869 or speak with a staff member at your childcare facility.
