Sunday Morning Guidelines for Children, Birth – 6th Grade
Effective August 16, 2020
In an effort to protect the safety of our children and their families, especially during the COVID-19 crisis, we are putting forth the following guidelines. There is no way to be 100% sure whether someone will unknowingly carry the virus. If we do become aware of a child or volunteer testing positive for COVID-19, we will notify those who came into contact with that individual. We know that these precautions are tedious, however they are not optional because they are for the safety of our children. Until further notice, the nursery and preschool children will meet in the FLC. Look for signage designating Nursery and Preschool
