FFC Kids Illness Policy

Illness Policy

In our efforts to help the children of FFC be as healthy as possible, below are some guidelines for parents and volunteers to be aware of. Thank you for helping us to do our best to keep kids healthy. For some children in our church, a runny nose or slight fever is a minor illness, but for others it becomes hospitalization.  

We ask that children and volunteers stay home if they have any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever of 100 or greater
  • Runny nose that is green or yellow
  • Drainage from ears
  • Sore throat
  • Rash
  • Productive or consistent cough
  • Red, goopy eyes
  • Vomiting or diarrhea

If your child is exhibiting any of these symptoms, the classroom teacher will notify a member of the children’s ministry staff.  The staff member will make the final decision if parents need to be notified to take the child home.  

Please make sure your child is vomit, diarrhea, and fever free for 24 hours (without Tylenol/ibuprofen) before they come to a classroom.  If they are on antibiotics and eye drops, they need to have that in their system for at least 24 hours before coming to a classroom. 

If your child has chronic problems with asthma or allergies, please let us know, as some of their symptoms may be similar to the ones stated above.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
