ProvKids COVID Precautions:
In light of COVID-19 we will be putting the following into place at this time in addition to our existing health and wellness policies. (see below for a link to our full handbook?) As we begin on August 30, 2020 we will have ProvKids available at both the 9am and 11am services for the Nursery (6mo.-18mo. olds) and K-5th graders. Preschoolers are welcome to attend service with their families at this time. (Activity bags will be available to keep preschoolers occupied during the service, and the cafe will also be available for streaming if you need a space to be with your preschooler.)
Currently, to ensure proper classroom ratios, ProvKids will be requiring all attendees to pre-register for Sunday each week by noon on Saturday.
All Staff and Volunteers will be temperature checked each morning. Before checking in children, health check questions will be asked of each family. If anyone in the household is experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, we will kindly ask that family to enjoy online service that day.
- A temperature of 100.4 or greater, now or in the last 48 hours
- Cough/Runny Nose (other than general allergies)
- Has anyone in the household been exposed to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 14 days
- Do you have a mask for service today or do you need one?
There will be manned check-in stations each week, with a check-in line marked for social distancing. Designated Check-In Volunteers will check in all families, providing a touch-free experience. Please send as few family members as possible with 1 adult to check-in.
6mo. -18 mo. children can be dropped off at the beginning of service in Rm. 201. Elementary children will begin upstairs in worship with their parents/guardians until dismissed at the start of the sermon (rooms will be assigned on your child’s tag).
Families will line up in a socially distant manner at the registration point for check out. Upon reaching the front of the line, a Check-Out Volunteer will retrieve the family’s child(ren) and check security tag(s). Please see someone at registration if you have misplaced your tags before attempting to retrieve your child.
Masks are expected for all ProvKids Volunteers and expected for all parents and Elementary children. Kid masks will be provided if needed.
ProvKids is limiting classroom capacity to encourage social distancing as much as possible. Elementary students will be placed into small groups in a large, open room to avoid unnecessary exposure.
Sanitization, Hygiene, and Cleaning
- All craft/coloring materials will be packaged for individual use.
- Sanitizer stations will be available throughout the building and we will remind children to use them when necessary.
- All touchpoints and restrooms will be wiped down and sanitized before, between, and after services.
- No outside food or drinks should be brought in at this time.
Parent Alert System
If ProvKids would need to retrieve a parent during service, your family’s unique security code (found on child pickup tag) would be displayed on the projector screen. Please report to the kids downstairs registration area if this number applies to you.
