Expectations for Kids

Check Out Process

  • After service dismissal, please pick up your child at their classroom.
  • Parents will display their duplicate name stickers and our volunteers will check your children out to you.

Additional Safety Notes

  • Volunteers will be enforcing mask-wearing and safe distancing.
  • If volunteers need to contact the parent/guardian, they will text the parent contact number. If there is no response, volunteers will locate the parents in the service area to come pick-up their child. 
  • If any volunteer or child experiences COVID symptoms within 48 hours of Sunday service, they or their parents are expected to contact Lighthouse. We will notify all of the families and other volunteers who were present on that Sunday. The volunteer/child who confirmed positive for COVID will not be permitted to attend in-person ministries until they have surpassed a 10-day symptom-free time period or have tested negative in accordance with CDC guidelines.
  • In case we need to evacuate (e.g. earthquake, fire), we will evacuate to Van Ness street and head north towards Del Amo Blvd.
