Check-In and Check-out Process
Upon arrival, visit any of our check-in desks located on the first and second floors of buildings B and C. Provide the phone number you used to register.
Once you have your nametags you may take your child to his or her classroom or if your child is familiar with the Elementary area you may allow them to go their classroom alone.
To pick up your child, please send only one adult with the pick-up tag to the Elementary area. Please keep the pick-up tag ready to show at the classroom door. Fifth graders will be dismissed from their classrooms at the end of the adult service—please arrange a meeting point with your fifth grader.
Because of our new COVID-19 protocols, snacks will not be offered in Elementary.

Health And Safety Policies
Children, staff, and volunteers will be checked for fever and will be asked to wash hands before entering Elementary, when entering their classrooms, after bathroom use, and before leaving Elementary. Volunteers and staff will wear masks as children arrive and as they leave, taking them off when the class is seated. Social distancing will be observed.
We do not provide any medications while children are in classrooms, except bandages. If a child needs medication, we will ask the parent to come administer it. Epi-pens and inhalers are an exception.
To minimize spreading germs, parents are asked not to bring sick children to church. Temperatures will be checked before entering Elementary and children with a temperature of 100 degrees or more will be asked to go home. Parents will be asked to pick up children from an isolation room if their child shows any of the following symptoms:
- nasal discharge (other than minimal, clear nasal discharge)
- any discharge or substance around the eyes
- fever of 100 degrees or more
- unidentified rash
- inflamed throat and/or mouth
- excessive coughing or sneezing
- head lice
- open wounds without proper bandages
- unusually lethargic or irritable behavior
- throwing up or diarrhea
Children being treated with antibiotics should be on their medication for at least 48 hours and symptom-free before entering one of our classrooms.
For the safety of our children, we lock the lobby doors to the elementary area during the worship service. If you need to pick up your child during the service, a volunteer will bring your child to you.
If you do not have the pick-up tag for the child you are picking up, you will be asked to show your driver’s license to a staff member.
We ensure that all our volunteers are screened with applications and background checks. This is for the safety of your children. Parents who want to visit the classroom will need to speak to the Elementary Ministry Leader to arrange a visit.
