At the beginning of Covid, it seemed like there were endless conversations about mask wearing and other precautions. At that time, FBC decided we would follow the recommendations of the Health Department, and that our KidMin would follow the Platte County schools. Now that the 2021-2022 school year is in session, we will continue to model our mask policy after the school district. At this time, the school district has voted for a mask mandate and will continue to re-evaluate each month.
Beginning this Sunday, August 29th, we are asking our KidMin & youth volunteers to wear a mask when in the classroom with kids & teens. We are also asking kids ages 3 years & up to wear a mask while in their classrooms. We know that there are a lot of differing opinions on mask mandates, and our top priority is to do everything we can to keep kids safe.
One policy that has changed in the last year is quarantine requirements. At this time, kids are not required to quarantine if both students are wearing a mask at the time of exposure. We hope that by asking our kids & volunteers to wear masks, we can prevent families from the burden of unnecessary quarantines.
Thank you for trusting us with your kids. Please reach out with any questions or concerns.
