Protocol for In-Person Programs

*Updated March 2021* – Following the recommendations of our medical advisory committee, TLC is returning to Bet Torah for limited in-person gatherings this spring.

In the interest of our mutual responsibility and partnership in caring for the health and safety of our families and community, each TLC family will:

  1. Parents/caregivers (not teens!) must submit Same-Day Health Questionnaire between one hour to 15 minutes before the program. (Form must be submitted by an adult, not by the teen.)
  2. Teens are expected to follow our *updated March 2021* Kulanu/TLC Health Protocols, including required face masks, social distancing, and no eating, designated seating 6-feet apart, as well as drop-off and health screening procedures.
  3. To participate in-person, teens must be registered for TLC.
  4. If this is your family’s first in-person Kulanu or TLC program: Complete a One-Time Health Attestation (one per family, per year)

TLC programs began 2020-21 as a hybrid model of in-person and remote.  

TLC Arrival/Dismissal Procedures

  • Drive up to the curb and wait for a staff member. (If teens are driving themselves, they should walk up to the sidewalk and wait for confirmation.)
  • Wait in the car until a staff member confirms that you have completed the Questionnaire. Teens can leave the car and enter the building only after confirmation.
  • Please do not arrive late. (If you must arrive late, wait in the car and call Loen’s cell.)
  • Teens are permitted to walk to cars parked cars alone at the conclusion of a program.
  • Parents are not permitted in the building.
