Policies and Rules


Ministry of ECYS introduces Safety and Emergency Response Policy for Schools

Please keep in mind that we are a PRIVATE Christian Homeschool Program.

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who will not abide by our program policies and rules.

  • Students are to wear or have in their possession at all times their HEP STUDENT ID (once you receive it).
  • Students should dress modestly for classes. No shorts above the knee; no tank tops unless covered by an outer shirt; no clothes with offensive designs or wording; short skirts should have shorts to the knee underneath; no revealing clothes are allowed. No nose rings or other piercing except ears; no tattoos that show; no brightly colored hair or outlandish hair styles. Blue jeans with rips should not show underwear, or other private areas. We understand that these are judgment calls and the final decision will be made by Joanne Juren Juren, Principal.               
  • Students will be referred to by biological pronouns while at school and/or participating in school events and activities.
  • Students should be on time and should be picked up on time. Our teachers and the HEP TX employees are not baby sitters.
  • Students are expected to behave at all times. Those who do not will be dismissed from the program.
  • Students who skip classes will be dismissed from the program.
  • Students are to respect the property of the school and use it wisely.
  • Students who use the HEP of Texas computers must be aware that we do dismiss students for inappropriate use of the computers.
  • Students are not to eat or drink in the classrooms. All food must be consumed in the lunch area.
  • Students should not bring Red Bull, Monsters, or similar beverages to HEP.
  • HEP Employees are not allowed to give out medicines, including Tylenol, etc. without parent permission.
  • Students may bring a lunch if they are staying for multiple classes. Students are NOT to stay for lunch if they do not have all day classes. We do not have enough room.
  • Students are not allowed to leave the campus without parent permission, including crossing the street to the convenience store.
  • No card playing or other types of gambling.
  • There is no smoking on campus.
  • Bringing alcohol or drugs on campus may result in the immediate expulsion of the student(s) involved from the program. No money paid for classes will be refunded.
  • Under no circumstances is a student to be on the campus when he/she is not taking classes. Our facility is too small for visitors who come to socialize.
  • Students are not to loiter in the parking lot or on the sidewalk in front of HEP Bookstore (landlord provision.)
  • Our landlord has asked that students and parents respect the other businesses in the center by not parking in front of the large overhead bay doors. These are used by many of the companies for deliveries.
  • HEP does not provide transcripts of grades. A transcript of grades is available from the TeacherEase on-line grading system. 
  • The home schooling parent must take an active role in monitoring his child’s academic achievement and the timely completion of all course work, as it is the parent's responsibility to be in charge of the home school program according to Texas Law.
  • Teachers should be notified when a student is absent.
  • Due to the fast pace and accelerated content of HEP’s classes, our teachers will not be able to work with special needs children who need additional tutoring, modified curriculums, or special concessions.
  • Any tutoring requested outside of the regular class time will be charged per hour by the teacher.
  • We do not give out teacher phone numbers.
  • Teachers may charge an hourly fee for extended parent conferences.
  • Contact teachers via e-mail through Teacher Ease if possible.
