This is an in-person event being held in a community facility. In order to ensure the safety of students and there families, as well as Abundant Life Church community members who may access the building, we will be enforcing a mask and health policy outlined below.

Following OHA recommended best practices and to the reduce risk of Covid transmission, students will have their temperature checked each day at drop-off and will be supplied with a daily face mask. Students will be asked to socially distance and keep there mask on (over nose & mouth) at all times while indoors. Frequent outdoor breaks will be incorporated into the schedule, during which time students may remove their masks. Students who present with a fever or illness or fail to comply with safety measures will be asked to leave. If a student or a member of their household is suspected or known to have contracted Covid, a program staff member must be notified as soon as possible, to allow for contact tracing.
