Pre-K thru 6th Grade. Throughout the week students will learn from the Bible, participate in recreation, do crafts, and learn new songs.
Amid our current circumstances and health concerns, after talking with our local health department, here are measures that we are taking to provide safety for all of our participants and volunteers.
**Practices we have in place during classes/rotations:
-no snack rotation
-students will be organized by grade level and there should not be more than 10 – 15 per group
-all grade levels will only be together in one place at the beginning and ending of the day (about 20 minutes each time) and each grade level grouping will be separated from the other grade level groupings (similar to the Graduation format)
-each room will have hand sanitizer and students will be required to use it upon entering the room
-for Bible study rotation each grade level group will have their own space and supplies so there is no “cross contamination” between the grade level groups
-for the craft rotation each grade level group will have their own space with their own supplies so there is no “cross contamination” between the grade level groups
-there will be one route for groups to follow from rotation to rotation so that the groups are not passing each other as they walk
-there will be staggered dismissals so the groups are not all leaving/entering at the same time
-during transitions students will be encouraged to use “airplane arms” to keep themselves distanced from the other students in line
-students will be socially distanced from other students while sitting at tables during Bible study and Crafts
-recreation will be outside while students are playing games, and equipment will be sanitized in between each group
-during music students will be spaced out while learning their songs and motions to go with the songs
**Practices we have in place general:
-no drinking fountain (students may bring their own water bottles if they’d like)
-we will be taking temperatures upon arrival
-each leader will have hand sanitizer they will carry with them to have students sanitize as needed
-we will have a volunteer designated to wipe down surfaces, light switches, door knobs, and bathrooms every 30 minutes as students rotate through their stations.
-with the many lunch stops around town, we will not be serving lunch
