Well Child Policy

We care for the health and well-being of all children within our ministry, by asking that kids be kept home if they have an illness.

If a child has…

FEVER: Child should be fever free for 24 hours without medication.

VOMITING/DIARRHEA: Child should be episode free for 24 hours.

STREP THROAT: Child should have started antibiotics 24 hours before attending.

NASAL DRAINAGE: Child should not attend until clear.

SORE THROAT/COUGH: Child should not attend with a sore throat, croup, or persistent coughing associated with a respiratory infection.

PINK EYE: Attend only after 24 hours of antibiotics, no matting or drainage occurs, and the child is no longer rubbing the eye.

CHICKEN POX: Child may not attend until all spots are scabbed over and the child is no longer scratching or touching scabs.

RASH: Children with an unexplained or contagious rash should not attend.

LICE/ OTHER INFESTATION: Children should not attend until after treatment and all lice and visible nits have been removed.


At all Family Ministry events, including Sunday School, Nursery, Awana, Vacation Bible School, and other special events, hand sanitizer stations are provided in all common areas. Children and volunteers are encouraged to frequently use the stations each time they pass. We currently ask that all adults (ages 14+) to social distance (6ft) from other adults outside their family or wear a mask.
