We are always striving for excellence here at FBC Russell. We have Security Labels in the Preschool area at the counter near the entrance of the preschool hallway. Feel free to see the volunteers at the security desk for help on how to complete the Security Label.
Effective Sunday, April 5th, 2009, the Preschool Sunday School teacher will only release children to the person who has the Security Label with the matching pager number on the child’s label. If you give your label to the parent who did not drop off the child, or to another ADULT family member, then the person with the Security Label will be able to receive the child. Many of our children are dropped off at 9:00 a.m., and are not picked up until after the Second Morning Worship service (10:30 a.m. service). We have different teachers during each service. This is why this procedure is so important! The teacher receiving the child at 9:00 a.m. is a different teacher than the one who will release the child. In order to provide better security, it is imperative that everyone comply with this security procedure.
The Security Label is shown below. The peelable (Front) side is the one that the parent must complete. We encourage you to take one of the labels home if you like, and complete it at your convenience. Then, on Sunday morning you will only need to get a pager and place the pager number on the labels. The larger label is peeled off and attached to your child’s back so they do not remove it, and the smaller label is attached to their backpack or diaper bag, if applicable.
The other side of the label (Back) is the one on which you write the pager number, and MUST have with you to receive your child from the Sunday School Teacher. On the Label, shown below, the arrow points to the area to write the pager number. Please make sure you complete this to match the pager number on your child’s label, the (Front) shown above.
The pager you receive must be returned to the security desk so that you do not leave the building with it. The Security Label is the source for matching you to your child. If you should have any questions about this procedure, please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. I can be reached during church office hours, Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 606-836-5111. You are always welcome to contact me after church hours, on my cell phone, at 606-923-0888.
Our goal is make FBCR the safest place possible for you and your child. We have the best interest of all the children in mind. We hope this is not considered an inconvenience, so please work with us to ensure your child’s safety. I want to thank you, in advance, for your cooperation in this matter.
