Options being considered for the fall: Beginning Sunday Sept. 19
Read the following for more information: exact details are still being worked out
1. OUTSIDE in person small group classes--students will be divided into small groups based on number of attendee's, age level, and space available.
This option will be dependent on the weather--we do have some pop up tents available that we can use in case of light rain. However wind/hard rain and Smokey air quality might affect this option. Masks will still be required due to outdoor space size and social distancing can not be guaranteed.
2. INSIDE in person small group classes--students will be divided into small groups based on number of attendee's, age level, and space available.
Students will be spaced out a min. of 3ft from other students, all staff will do their best to stay 6ft apart from students following state guidelines for K-12 education. Masks will be required for all students and staff. The Lower Education Wing has an upgraded HVAC system following all Covid-19 guidelines.
Please note for the 2 above options once students are dropped off in their in person small groups at 9:45am they will not be leaving their space(except to use the restroom) until parents pick them up at 10:45am.
Exact schedule to be worked out but most likely students will be asked to attend worship with their families the 1st Sunday of each month to experience communion and worship in person (Oct. 3, Nov. 7 to begin). Dec. 5 is influx--depends on Christmas program. Nov. 28 1st Sunday in Advent no regular class.
3. Online live Zoom class are the best option for us this fall
Zoom class times TBD
5-12th grade families you can skip the next 2 options and go to the response question:
4. Age/grade level Storytime pullouts(Preschool-4th grade) during worship on Sunday mornings: available at all 3 services--these will probably be 2x per month based on volunteers and space. Other weeks students are encouraged to attend worship with their families.
Students will begin worship in the sanctuary with their families and then be pulled out after the prayer of the day for a 20-25 minute Story time opportunity (masked social distanced, etc.) during the passing of the peace. Returning back to worship during the Passing of the Peace.
5. We will continue to watch and participate in pre-recorded Storytime options for Pre/K and 1st-4th grade students.
These will most likely return again as part of a regular plan to provide Faith Formation conversations and Bible Stories in the fall.
Reading the above 5 options my family plans on doing the following in the fall:
Please note we will be following all Covid-19 guidelines set by the WA DOH for early child hood and K-12 education along the lines of the Tacoma School District and the St. Mark's preschool. This will include mask wearing for all students and staff and proper social distancing as best as we are able.
