HEP Policies and Rules


  • Students should dress modestly for classes. This includes unusual hair/hair coloring. 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.                                                              

  • Students should be on time and should be picked up on time. Our teachers and the HEP Bookstore 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.

  • 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. Grades are 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 if possible.
