Choir News--Building Rules and Codes

This week's news update concerns each site's building rules and codes.  We had two of the sites contact us this week with a request for help in following their building rules.  As such, would you please remind your students of the follow and/or let them know of the building rule changes for their benefit.  We are very thankful to each of these locations for hosting us as it is a challenge to find such gracious host locations.  As such, we want to do our best to continue to honor their requests.  Also, if you'd like to send a thank you note to your location for letting the choirs rehearse there that'd be great too.  A few words can go a long way. Thanks!

Edmond Location

First Christian Church has had several very challenging off-the-street cases recently.  As such, you may have noticed the locked door policy this week at rehearsal.  Note that it's for your children's safety, AND you can now enter with the code:  4396#

This should also help with the hall monitor situation.  Basically, if those parents who are staying would collectively guide students to their room, there should be little need for an assigned hall monitor each week.  Yeah!

Oklahoma City Location

Just a reminder, we are not to use the back hallway bathrooms unless absolutely necessary (meaning: our designated entry bathroom is out of toilet paper).  Also, it has been reported to me on several occasions now that we are still having trouble with dress code at this location.  Please honor our dress code as it shows respect now only to our location, but to those around us.  Failure to wear proper attire could also result in a child being excused from rehearsal and none of us want to have to do that.  Thanks!

Norman Location

Bethel has had some scheduling changes in their building usage.  As such, COHC is no longer able to use the children's play area during choir time.  Instead we need to limit ourselves to just our reserved lounge room or the front foyer.  Sorry for any frustration, but thanks for your help in this regard.  

Want to send a positive note telling your location thank you for hosting us?  

Here's their addresses.  And thank you!
