Two Quick Things:
Thing One – Children First is this Sunday. Our theme is Alone. If your young child has ever wrestled with separation anxiety or your older child has ever felt stress about going to a new school or new camp all by themselves, then this theme will resonate!
Thing Two – Starting October 12th, the only Sunday entrance into the Children’s Wing will be through the first floor hallway (by the statue of St. Francis). All other doors, including those on the second floor, will be exit only. This was a hard decision and was not made in a bubble. We brought in security contractors, worked with a security task force from the Foundation, and the Children’s Council meton the issue. The overwhelming consensus was that the minor inconvenience of entering through the first floor doors was nothing compared with the added level of security all our children gain by simply having one monitored entrance.
This will take some getting used to, but we feel that anything we can do to ensure greater security of your sweet children is worth it.
Have a great week.
I can’t wait to see all of you at Children First on Sunday!
