Policies and Procedures
St. Richard's Episcopal Preschool is considered a parish school to St. Richard's Episcopal Church of Round Rock. The school is under the jurisdiction of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. The school is incorporated under the Texas Non-Profit Incorporation Act, and we operate by permission of St. Richard’s Episcopal Church Vestry. The Head of School runs daily operations and the Board of Directors set policies and fees.
Safeguarding God's Children
The Episcopal Diocese of Texas has mandated that all persons who are involved with the care or teaching of children in the church or school complete a training regarding sexual abuse of children using the program Safeguarding God’s Children. This includes paid staff and volunteers alike. The school using an approved trainer from the Diocese will provide the training; there is a fee of $10 for a background check required by the Diocese. Parents wishing to volunteer on a regular basis must have a documented certificate on file with the school and the Diocese. The training certificate is current for 5 years. Please contact the school office for additional information.
Illness and Health Policy
Little children often get sick. You should keep your child at home throughout the duration of the illness so as to expedite the healing process and avoid getting the other children sick. When your child is ready to return to school, we would appreciate a note from their doctor indicating that they are free from contagions. If your child is sent home with a fever (100.0) they will be allowed back to school once they are fever free without medicine for 24 hours.
WE ARE A NUT-FREE SCHOOL.
