Sundays • 9am & 11AM
Student Center Basketball Court(1st-6th) | Education Wing (BIRTH – Kinder)
We believe that gathering in person for kids is so important right now, but we also want to make sure we are doing so in a way that is the most wise and loving to our community. Here’s how these gatherings will work…but with everything these days, we hold these plans loosely because circumstances change rapidly!
REGISTRATION no longer required
As attendance has stabilized we feel confident that we are able to maintain our Cohorts without the need for preregistration. And so we will no longer require preregistration of your students, but we will keep them in the same cohort they have been a part of. We will be asking about your health when you arrive, so if your child or anyone in the child’s household are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19 or if you’ve been knowingly exposed, please stay home.
KidsMin: birth – 6th grade @ 9 am + 11 am
We are hoping to make the check-in and drop-off process as quick and smooth and safe as possible. For elementary students, we are asking for you to enter in through the TOP parking lot above the Community Center. You’ll then drive down around the building. If your kids are comfortable being dropped off you’ll continue driving to the front of the basketball court. When you arrive we will ask the status of your health. After you drop your kids off you can continue driving to the main campus! If your kid(s) aren’t comfortable being dropped off from the car and you’d like to walk them in (or if you want to keep your car parked at the Student Center and walk to main campus on your own) you’ll park your car to the left before the drop-off line veers right towards the basketball court. If this sounds confusing, don’t worry, below is a link to a map, and we’ll also have staff, volunteers, and signs to point you in the right direction!
Children 3 years to kindergarten will check in on the Patio. There will be a greeter there to let you know which classroom your kiddos have been assigned to and you can get a name tag and a pick-up sticker.
Birth to ages 2 years will be signed in at room 12.
Cohorts + Precautions
In order to limit exposure and keep our families healthy we are placing kids into cohorts of no more than 14 kids and two adult leaders. They will stay with their cohort as they rotate through different activities and will remain in the same cohort from week to week. This will not only limit the number of kids they are exposed to, they will also be able to form some lasting friendships!
We hope this goes without saying at this point, but if your child or anyone in the child’s household are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19 or if you’ve been knowingly exposed, please stay home. Before you leave your house we ask that you would screen your kids at home for any fever or symptoms. We will also give kids a pump of hand sanitizer as they enter. Adult staff and volunteers will be screened each week and will be wearing masks throughout the duration of the service.
In addition to activities outside, we are moving our Elementary Students inside into the Community Center Auditorium for the short Bible Teaching video. Please have your child bring their mask with them. Inside, they will continue to be in their same cohorts and distanced from the other cohorts. Drop off and pick up will be exactly the same for our Elementary families. Due to the weekly changes in weather, the Auditorium has now been set up for us to safely move inside when needed.
