SAFETY:

We want to be sure you feel secure at this event! If the weather allows, lots of activities will happen outdoors, but if it's rainy, we will be indoors. 

  • Our TLC Medical Team will be on-site all day to support any medical issues that may arise. This team includes two Oncology Nurse Practitioners from Seattle Children's, and the Director of Nursing at SCCA.

  • ALL PARTICIPANTS will wear masks when indoors. During lunchtime, each family will have your own table in a large and airy cafeteria, spaced 8-10 feet from other families.

  • ALL PARTICIPANTS will be subject to a health screening upon arrival, including a temperature check and symptoms survey.  We will not allow anyone with symptoms of illness to participate.

  • ALL VOLUNTEERS will have shown proof of vaccination including the bivalent booster for COVID-19.  If a volunteer hasn’t received the booster, we will require a Covid test the day of the event.

  • ALL PARTICIPANTS will make regular use of the plentiful supply of hand sanitizer that will be provided.

We also expect that you consult your primary medical provider to be sure an event like this is appropriate for your child and family.

FAQ:

 

If only part of my family can attend, is that OK? 

YES! As long as one parent or caregiver is present.

May I bring extended family or family friends?

Sorry, this event is for your immediate family only (i.e. those who live in your home).

What will the food be like?

We will serve a buffet of pre-packaged lunch items like sandwiches, salads, chips, and fruit. We will provide a few options for kids and adults. We can accommodate vegetarians. If you have a family member who is gluten free, dairy free, or has another specific allergy, please plan to bring some food of your own.

My kids are super young...will they have fun?

They will!  We will have a special space dedicated to babies and preschoolers, staffed by a team of expert, professional preschool educators.
