Current sick child policy as it pertains to Kingdom Heroes classes and its students.
This applies for all kids Nursery through 5th Grade.
We absolutely believe in healing and God's intervention in sickness and in His desire for us to be well. That said, we are also very intentional to be cautious and considerate of others.
Thank you for honoring the policy below.
We pray that your family would experience divine health and wholeness in Jesus' name!
COLD AND FLU SEASON
"Influenza activity often begins to increase in October and November. Most of the time flu activity peaks between December and March and can last as late as May.
Please help us keep our church family healthy by following these reminders to reduce the the risk of spreading flu and colds. This applies to both children and adults. Let's be especially sensitive to the possibilities of sharing germs with our children.
Please do not bring your child to church earlier than they should just because 'they feel O.K.'"
Please stay at home:
• If sick with cold or flu-like symptoms for at least 24 hours, to allow time to diagnose
• At least 24 hours after fever returns to normal temperature
• At least 24 hours after the symptoms of stomach virus are gone
• At least 24 hours following 1st dose of antibiotics
• If there is a cold and cough, even when there is no fever
What parents can do if their child becomes sick:
• Keep sick children home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever, without using fever-reducing medications (Tylenol or Motrin). Please err on the side of caution and give your child an additional day(s) to recover after a fever. Just because the fever has been gone for 24 hours does not mean that 26 hours later they should be coming to church. Consider keeping them home for 36 hours after they no longer have a fever.
• People who are sick should stay home from work, school, church and all other social activities and stay away from others.
QUESTIONS TO ASK IF YOU'RE WONDERING IF YOUR CHILD SHOULD STAY HOME:
-Are they running a temperature? or How long since they last ran a temperature?
-How are they acting?
-Are they contagious?
• If your child has been diagnosed with the flu, plan on staying home with your child for 5-7 days. The child who contracts H1N1 can be contagious for 5-7 days after the first onset of symptoms.
• If your child develops a secondary infection such as pneumonia, bronchitis, or a sinus infection, they must be on an antibiotic for at least 24 hours before coming to church.
Signs of influenza-like illness may include some of the following symptoms:
• A fever equal to or greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Note that it is possible to have the flu and not be running a fever of 100 degrees.
• Cough, sore throat, and runny/stuffy nose
