Your child’s safety is our top priority! We strive to make certain that all volunteers and staff are trained, screened, and have current background checks. We have numerous security measures in place to protect children and encourage parents and volunteers to adhere to ministry policies.
One of our safety procedures is the child/parent security tags. At a Children’s Check-In Station, you will receive two security tags with matching numbers: a nametag for your child to wear and a parent tag, so that you may pick up your child. The security numbers are unique to each family and each visit to Sugar Hill Church.
When picking up your child, have your parent tag ready. For security purposes, the numbers on the parent’s tag must match the child’s nametag before he may leave the classroom.
We want to keep your child—and the children of other families—healthy and happy. Please look over our Well-Child Health Policy below when determining if you should bring your child to his/her ministry program:
A sick child may have one or more of the following symptoms:
- A fever over 99.6 degrees currently or for the last 24 hours
- Vomiting or diarrhea currently or for the last 24 hours
- Runny nose with a thick, colored mucus
- Unexplained rashes
- Skin infections (impetigo, boils or ringworms)
- Eye infections
- Childhood diseases such as chicken pox, mumps, measles, rubella, pertussis or scarlet fever.
If a child currently has any of the above symptoms, the teacher will not be able to accept the child into the classroom. If a child develops any of the above symptoms while in our care, we will ask you to come and get him/her. We will not administer medications of any kind.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated and will help protect the health of all of our children.
