Child Care and COVID-19

State of Indiana Executive Order 20-40:  Child Care Matters and COVID-19
Orden Ejecutiva 20-40, "Asuntos de Cuidado Infantil

Governor Eric Holcomb in response to the COVID-19 Emergency and the opening of public schools has temporarily suspended regulatory statues as they relate to schools and child care programs.

Many school corporations have opted or been ordered to provide remote or e-learning rather than in-person instruction, leaving working parents in the lurch if their children remain at home.

On August 21st, he signed Executive Order 20-40, which allows school corporations to contract with organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Club or YMCA, to operate school-age childcare programs in locations in addition to public school buildings to help families who need care while their students engage in e-learning.

Additionally, the order increases the number from six to 10 of school-aged children allowed to gather in one location on school days for e-learning without requiring the childcare setting to be licensed.

Freeman Low Water Level Warning

Shafer & Freeman Lakes Environmental Conservation Corporation (SFLECC) Issues low water warning

SFLECC Press Release - August 28, 2020

Lake Freeman is under a low water flow warning! If you are boating on the lake be aware of submerged objects that may be dangerously close to the surface of the water. If you have watercraft docked on Lake Freeman be aware of the lower water levels and take appropriate action to protect your watercraft. Low lake levels may make many docks and lifts unusable.

At this time, the SFLECC is in the middle of a lengthy battle in the Federal Court system, with no new information as of now. Our actions, if successful, will benefit you and your family in some way, whether you are an SFLECC licensee, other Lake property owner, Twin Lakes area resident, business owner, or occasional visitor.

Unfortunately, we do not see the current situation improving until there is significant rainfall in our watershed.

What can I do regarding the lake levels?

1.  Be Careful!
  • The water levels have dropped significantly, creating many hazards.
2.  Contact Federal Representatives!
3.  Support SFLECC’s appeal in Federal Court to overturn FERC’s decision to uphold US Fish & Wildlife’s mandate to drain Lake Freeman!


4.  Learn about mussels in Lake Freeman
  • US Fish & Wildlife has determined there aren’t mussels in Lake Freeman that are on the endangered species list.
5.  Learn what is the SFLECC doing?
