    2. Check-in will be completed by staff at 2 computer stations. There will be no self check-in. Check-in Staff will wear gloves and a mask.
    3. Children will have their temperature taken at the Registration Desk with a touchless forehead thermometer and recorded by the staff. All volunteers scheduled will also have their temperature taken and recorded before entering the classrooms.
    4. If you or your child(ren) are feeling ill, have or have had a fever in the last 14 days, are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, have tested positive for COVID-19 with the last 14-21 days or have been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive or has possessed symptoms for COVID-19 within the last 14 days, we ask that you please STAY HOME and enjoy our online experience until such time as your family is well.

    CLASSROOM PROCEDURES

    1. Masks are to be worn by children (ages 2 and over) until they arrive in their classroom, then they may take them off. Please keep children’s masks in the classroom with their name on them. Masks will need to be worn if travelling in the hallways to go to the bathroom, to go outside or to go home. Teachers will also have their masks on in the classroom and hallways.
    2. Children will sanitize their hands as they come into the classroom, and before they leave to go home.
    3. There will be no snacks provided in the classrooms for Pre-K - 4th grade, but if your toddler (3 years or younger) needs a bottle, sippy cup or snack, please feel free to bring those. All bottles, cups, snack containers and pacifiers need to be clearly labeled.
    4. When possible, there will be some distancing when children are seated at tables.
    5. Teachers will thoroughly sanitize the tables, chairs and toys once every child has been picked up.
    6. No one except for teachers and age appropriate children will be allowed in each particular classroom. Parents and siblings need to remain outside of the classroom when dropping off and picking up their children.  Children will be brought to the parent at the doorway of the class. Please be sure to have your check-in sticker with you when you pick up your child.

    Your cooperation and partnership is greatly appreciated during this time.  Once again, we are so blessed to be able to serve you and your children in Res Life Kids! God has amazing victories in store for all of us as we stay close to Him!!
