Health and Safety

To ensure their safety, no child or youth should be left unattended at any time. In order for your child or youth to get the most out of our programs: to build community, to forge lasting memories and relationships--we ask that your family strives to attend church regularly.  Continuity is crucial to our program’s success. Please respect the starting and ending time of our programs, so that our teachers may tend to their own affairs.    Please consider how you might help our RE program be successful, it is our hope that parents assist in Sunday RE 2-4 times a year to ensure that success.  Come learn and grow with your kids!

In order to protect our children and youth, all children under the age of 18 must be in the presence of an adult.  If a child / youth does not wish to participate in the Religious Exploration programs they may either volunteer in the Nursery / Chapel or remain in the Sanctuary.  At no time should any child under the age of 18 be allowed to wander the building without adult supervision.

Child Protection

For every age group: from Nursery through High School: a minimum of two adults must be present.  If a teacher or youth leader suspects or is made aware of child abuse or has a concern about a child’s safety and well-being, this information will be reported to the Director of Religious Exploration as soon as possible.  There is to be no use of alcohol or illegal drugs at events involving the children or youth. At FUSD, we are concerned about each child’s spiritual and religious education. In addition, we are committed to making sure that we provide an environment that protects each child’s health and safety.
