We often conduct morning classes at Bethel Lutheran Church. At the same time, the parish also conducts a morning pre-school (9:15-12:15). To ensure the security and safety of the students while school is in session, it is essential to control access to the building and school hallways. Therefore, Bethel has requested that we implement the following procedures for our members attending any morning classes at the church.
1) The main entrance glass doors must remain locked and/or monitored during school hours. Therefore, the class sign-in sheet will be located inside the front door. LLI will post a person at the front door to screen (by sight/name tag and sign-in) our people coming in the building. Soon after our class starts, the front doors will be locked. Late arrivals must enter through the office door to the left of the main entrance.
2) The pre-school hallway is OFF LIMITS during class hours, and will be screened off from the main hallway. Please do not move the barrier screen or go around it for any reason.
3) Once inside our classroom (the Fellowship Hall), we are free to use the coffee area, the adjacent restrooms, and the water fountain next to the restrooms. Butaccess to these must be through the door from the Fellowship Hall (at the front of our classroom), not from the main hallway.
4) When our morning class is completed (usually 12:00 noon), we are asked NOT TO SOCIALIZE or carry on conversations in the main hallway. The pre-school teachers will be moving their students from their classrooms to the playground or dismissal during this same time, and need free access without disturbance or congestion.
Over the years, Bethel Lutheran Church has been one of our most important venues. They graciously allow us frequent use of their facilities free of charge, and we greatly value our relationship with Pastor Wilson and this parish community. We ask for your understanding and compliance with these procedures to help ensure the safety of their students and LLI’s continued use of their facilities.
