The Church of the Incarnation is in compliance with the Archdiocese of Hartford in the Protecting God’s Children Program. All catechists (18 and over) have undergone a background check and have attended or will attend (new catechists) a comprehensive workshop on Protecting God’s Children. The following directives are put in place for the safety of our children as they attend Faith Formation classes.

All children are to arrive 10 minutes before the class meeting time. Please honor the time of arrival.

There are two excused absences from all levels of Faith Formation. If more absences occur, the Director of Faith Formation will notify the parent and discuss the issue.
  1. Children (Gr.4-6) may be dropped off in the circle next to the sidewalk.Children are to exit the car on the side of the sidewalk.
  2. Children (Gr.K-3) must be accompanied into the building by a parent or guardian and brought to their classroom. If the catechist is not there, please bring your child back to the cafeteria. All catechists should arrive 20 minutes before class begins.
  3. All children (Gr.K-6) must be picked up in the cafeteria.  The circle will be blocked off at dismissal.
  4. *****No child will be excused from religious formation classes for the reasons of sports or extra-curricular activities. This is the reason why the class time has been changed so that we will be dismissed before extra-curricular activities begin.
  5. *****If a child needs to be excused early because of a scheduled appointment or a family emergency, a note must be presented to the Director of Faith Formation. The child will be called from his/her community via the intercom. The parent must meet the child in the cafeteria in the presence of the director at the time of dismissal.
  6. Parents are asked not to roam the building. You are welcome to wait in the cafeteria. Adults are to only use the restroom off the kitchen which is off the cafeteria.
  7. The front door of E-W will be locked on the outside after all children have arrived. Enter by the cafeteria door only. There will be a monitor at the door.
Father Crawford Hall Communities: Calendars and schedules will be sent out via e-mail or mail to the families.
  1. Parents must park in the parking lot. No one is allowed to drive through or park in the roadway between the church and the parking lot. This is for safety reasons.
  2. Children are to be brought to the door of Father Crawford Hall.
  3. Children are to be picked up at the door.
  4. Please be mindful that children are to arrive on time and are to be picked up on time. This is most important.
  5. *****No child will be excused for reasons of sports or extra-curricular activities. If this occurs on a regular basis, the child will be dismissed from the class and will attend Emerson-Williams on Saturday mornings.
  6. *****If a person other than a parent is picking up your child, the catechist must be notified in advance via letter or telephone message.
  7. Adults may only use the restroom which is located in the sacristy.
