If your child is to be transported to an area school in the morning, he/she must be at Kids R Kids by 7:15 am.

If your child will not be picked up from school at the end of the school day, you must notify us by 2:00 pm, before our buses leave Kids R Kids to pick up the children. If we are not notified, buses become delayed while we attempt to locate your child. This makes the bus late in picking up children on the remaining route and late getting children back to Kids R Kids.  A fee may be applied for failure to notify us due to the disruption this causes.

Field Trip Permission Forms must be signed and dated for each field trip.  The form will advise you as to where children will be going, the departure time and expected time to arrive back to Kids R Kids. The form will be available for your signature at least 2 days prior to the planned trip date.

Internet Access
Internet access to your child´s classroom is by password only. By enrolling your child at Kids R Kids, you consent that your child(ren) may also be seen on the Internet by other persons viewing with passwords.


Severe Weather, Fire or Emergency Situations
If an emergency situation develops such as severe weather, fire, physical damage to the building, or any other situation that poses a threat, the safety of the children is our first concern.

The school is equipped with a weather band radio, a fire alarm sprinkler system and fire extinguishers. Fire drills are conducted monthly and severe weather drills are conducted quarterly.

If there is an emergency situation and it becomes necessary to close the  school , parents will be notified to make arrangements for early pickup.

If there is inclement weather and it is determined that the school  will not open, parents will be notified through various local media providing closing information. We will also post this information on our website.

If an emergency situation develops and it is determined that the building or premises are unsafe, your child(ren) will be transported to a safe location.

Parents will be notified of the situation and you will be required to pick up your child(ren) as soon as possible.


Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco
In our effort to provide a safe, healthy environment for each child to grow and develop, we maintain a school free of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use.

The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited in the building or anywhere on the grounds by staff, parents, or anyone visiting.


The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited during any outing or field trip as well as on any vehicle used by the school to transport your child(ren).

 

Gang Free Zone

This school is a designated "Gang Free Zone" as mandated by the Texas State Legislature.


Discipline
At Kids R Kids, we use a method of "redirection" to guide your child(ren) toward appropriate behavior. If a child is engaged in behavior not conducive to a safe and happy learning environment, the teacher will "redirect" the child toward appropriate behavior. (The use of physical punishment or harsh language is prohibited.)

Parents or guardians are required to abide by the Kids R Kids Discipline Policy any time they are on school property.


Dismissal Policy
The staff will work with each child to fulfill the needs of that child, and every effort will be made to provide a positive learning experience. Special needs will be accommodated when possible.

Kids R Kids reserves the right to ask parents to make alternative arrangements for care if it is determined that a child´s needs cannot be met, or the child has not adjusted to group care provided by the school.  In the event behavior becomes disruptive to the program or becomes a problem that poses an unsafe situation for the child or other children in the class, alternative arrangements will be required.

If you, as a parent, are uncooperative in completing and returning forms, fail to pay your tuition on time, fail to follow any state or county regulations, or fail to follow any Kids R Kids Policies or Procedures, it may be necessary to dismiss your child(ren) from the school.

The Parent`s Role
The relationship between parents and staff is vital to the success of a child´s experience. A partnership must be formed the first day with open communication and understanding that the development and growth of the child is our top priority.

Parents can assist and help ensure a smooth transition by doing the following:

  • Sign children in and out at the front desk and then escort them to their designated class.
  • Have all forms completed promptly .
  • Update forms, as needed, when changes occur (i.e. new phone number, address, immunizations, allergies, etc.).
  • Keep staff informed of special needs or changes that might affect your child´s behavior.
  • Notify the school if your child is ill.
  • Do not bring an ill child to the school .
  • Notify the school if your child will be absent.
  • Notify the school if you will be later than usual picking up your child.
  • Provide a change of clothes marked with your child´s name (we are not responsible for lost clothing).
