Hope always strives to provide the safest and most nurturing environment possible for children. In order to insure the safety and health of both children and staff, children with ANY of the following conditions must be excluded from the classroom until conditions subside:

  • A temperature over 100 degrees
  • A painful, red throat, even if no fever is present
  • A deep, hacking cough
  • Difficulty breathing
  • An unexplained rash
  • Vomiting (more than once within 24 hours)
  • Diarrhea
  • Complaints of a stiff neck and headache
  • Thick green drainage from the nose
  • Yellow discharge from the eyes
  • An unusual yellow coloring to the skin or eyes

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Vickie Melton, our Prekids director, in the church office at 417 882 5888, or send an email to vmelton@hopechurch.net. Thank you so much for helping us keep children safe!
