Parents have until Aug. 30 to register for a finger-scanning system to sign children in and out of federally subsidized child care.

Jill Dent, director of the Division of Early Childhood Care and Development at the state Department of Human Services, announced the deadline last Wednesday.

By then, parents and other caregivers will have to visit county DHS offices to scan their fingers into the system, or lose their subsidy.
