General Announcements

Google Classroom and Newsletters: All classroom links can be found on our Stay Connected page! This page also has the links for our social media and our Newsletter sign up. You’ll need to initiate the newsletter sign-up, check your email, and confirm you want to receive it to start getting it directly in your inbox. Classroom is where you will see class-specific updates and plans, the newsletter will be for general campus or all-campus information. Staying connected with both will help you stay in the know!
Rock T-Shirts: All Pre-K-6th students MUST be in their Rock t-shirts. Upper School students are highly encouraged to wear them. For more information on our Dress Code, check out our Student Handbook. If you didn’t get a shirt at the Meet and Greet or missed the Meet and Greet, we will have a shirt on hand to give you on your first day of classes! Additional blue shirts are available for purchase for $10. Black, gray, and blue long-sleeved, short-sleeved, and hoodies are also available for purchase and are within the dress code. We are about to place orders for more shirts and hoodies–so let us know by emailing admin@therockenrichmentacademy.org or filling out an order form if you’d like to order some extra shirts! You will pay when they get delivered.
Tuition for those paying monthly: A couple of years ago we changed our financial policies. This change included collecting last month’s tuition up front along with any fees.
This means that, theoretically, you paid fees and May 2023 tuition when you enrolled, and then you will begin monthly (September through April) tuition payments this week!
Some people are still playing catch up with this change of policy.
If you JUST paid your fees upon enrollment, you will owe TWO months of tuition in September (September and May)–please contact ASAP if you need to make payment arrangements! Late fees begin being assessed for all unpaid September tuition starting on 9/19. If you just paid fees up front, and then you pay September tuition, you are a month behind.
Supply lists: Are on our website! Let us know if you need help figuring out what stays at school and what travels with your students. There are little asterisks next to general campus supplies (supplies that stay on campus). As a general rule: Personal hand-sanitizer, pencil bags, sketchbooks, binders, and spiral notebooks stay with the student while bigger supplies stay on the campus.
Daily Schedules: Those are also on our website! Homeroom teachers are also listed on the daily schedules (Homeroom teacher is the teacher that students see during their Character Building period).
Annual Calendar: Our calendar is also up on the website. This includes all breaks, special weeks (like Crazy Sock week), and other events. Any classroom-specific celebrations will be posted in Google Classroom by the teacher hosting the celebration.
Birthday celebrations: We LOVE to celebrate our student’s birthdays! If your student has a birthday coming up, you’re welcome to bring in treats to share. Please let us know in advance so that we can notify families who have food sensitivities/allergies/preferences towards bringing their own treats. You may contact your homeroom teacher, or just reach out to Mrs. Jay-Turner or me (Mrs. Frankenberg) and we will pass the message along.
Campus Security: All of our doors are locked once school starts. If you need to arrive late, are taking an a la carte class so you’re dropping off at a different time, or are leaving early, the doors will be locked. Please text your campus lead (on your Welcome Letter–included below just in case you lost it/didn’t get it) to notify them of any late arrivals/early departures/if you’re stuck at the door and can’t get in! Please DO NOT drop off your student at the door and just leave–please make sure they get inside!

Monday Round Rock

First-day instructions K-6th: When you arrive on this campus, you’ll pull to the left side of the church (go straight from the entrance) for drop-off. The teachers will open the side doors at 8:45 and will walk your students into the sanctuary for morning assembly!
Pre-K Parents can either drop their students off in carpool OR park on the right side of the building and walk their students in!
When you come back to pick-up your students, they will also come to this door (hopefully right at 2:30–we don’t open the doors until everyone is settled and organized). Please form TWO LINES when picking up. We will have cones out to help direct traffic. We will also have teachers outside helping. This is to ensure we get everyone off the busy road as quickly as possible
Please have your student’s name and grade written on a piece of paper in BIG letters in your passenger side window or windshield!

Lunches: Students have lunch at either 12 or 12:30 depending on age (younger students eat first). All lunches need to be stored in their lunch bags–we do not have refrigerator space OR microwaves available. Students who are sent with a lunch to be warmed up will end up eating a cold lunch–and that’s a bummer! Please make sure that their lunch boxes and items are labeled if they’re not disposable!

Half-Day Pre-K- students who are taking half-day classes will be ready at 12pm for pick-up! Come to the double doors in the center of the right side of the building for pick-up.

Cedar Park West-Tuesday

First-day instructions K-6th: When you arrive on this campus, you’ll pull all the way to the back green building (there’s a wooden playground out front). This will allow you to drop your student off to the teacher near the playground and then loop around the loop to head back out.
Pre-K Parents can either drop their students off in carpool OR park to walk their child in. If you park in the spots near the stone house, you might get trapped. I’d park near the sanctuary and walk across the lawn!
When you come back to pick-up your students, they will also come to this loop (hopefully right at 2:30–we don’t open the doors until everyone is settled and organized). We will have cones out to help direct traffic. We will also have teachers outside helping. This is to ensure we get everyone off the busy road as quickly as possible. If the line extends to the sanctuary parking lot, please form two lines so that we can keep people off 1431.
Please have your student’s name and grade written on a piece of paper in BIG letters in your passenger side window or windshield!

Lunches: Students have lunch at either 12 or 12:30 depending on age (younger students eat first). All lunches need to be stored in their lunch bags–we do not have refrigerator space OR microwaves available. Students who are sent with a lunch to be warmed up will end up eating a cold lunch–and that’s a bummer! Please make sure that their lunch boxes and items are labeled if they’re not disposable!

Upper School Students: Will start Tuesdays off in the library (stone house). The door will be unlocked at 8:45. The door we use is in the middle of the house with an awning over it. We will then move to the sanctuary for Psychology and then back to the library for the rest of the day. Upper School students do have access to a fridge, microwave and stove (I guess if you’re in the mood to cook yourself a meal?).

Cedar Park East-Wednesdays

First-day instructions: When you arrive on this campus, you’ll pull up to the gym building to drop-off. The entrance we use is the last set of double doors and is covered by an awning. Carpool runs FROM 1431 to loop around the building/behind the gym counterclockwise and back to 1431. You may pull through the recovery center’s parking lot, but you must park behind the building or loop around to join carpool from the correct direction. Please do not park in the spots that run along the building/carpool spots–this includes ALL spots in front of the gym doors and the ones across from them before you get to the right exit/the road that goes through to the recovery center. You will get trapped or run over kids (neither of which are good). You may park in parking lot closer to the main building and walk your child in or park around back. If you drive through the recovery center’s parking lot (pulling in off Arrow Point), you need to maintain a speed of 5mph. If we do not abide by their request to limit our speeds, we will be asked to not use that entrance.


When you come back to pick-up your students, they will also come the gym door (hopefully right at 2:30–we don’t open the doors until everyone is settled and organized). Please form TWO LINES when picking up. We will have cones out to help direct traffic. We will also have teachers outside helping. If you are in the left lane (closest to the building), you will have to loop back around to exit the parking lot via 1431, if you’re in the right lane, you will have to exit through the recovery center’s parking lot and onto Arrow Point drive.


Please have your student’s name and grade written on a piece of paper in BIG letters in your driver’s side window or windshield!

Lunches: Students have lunch at either 12 or 12:30 depending on age (younger students eat first). All lunches need to be stored in their lunch bags–we do not have refrigerator space OR microwaves available. Students who are sent with a lunch to be warmed up will end up eating a cold lunch–and that’s a bummer! Please make sure that their lunch boxes and items are labeled if they’re not disposable!

Georgetown Wednesday

First-day instructions: When you arrive on this campus, you’ll pull onto the right side of the building and loop around (counter-clockwise) to the back near the playground. ALL students will start off in the sanctuary (we went back and forth about that at the Meet and Greet, if I remember correctly). That means students will walk into the doors that are in the middle of the playground. We will get started with Life Skills after arrival, so some weeks we’ll be in “The Garage”, some weeks we will be in the sanctuary, and other times in the kitchen! Once we get some Lower School kids, we might switch stuff up.

Lunches: Please make sure that their lunch boxes and items are labeled if they’re not disposable! Upper School students do have access to a microwave, I don’t know about the fridge for sure, but I think there’s one we can use 🙂

Cedar Park West Thursdays

When you arrive on this campus, you’ll pull all the way to the back green building (there’s a wooden playground out front). This will allow you to drop your student off to the teacher near the playground and then loop around the loop to head back out.
Pre-K Parents can either drop their students off in carpool OR park to walk their child in. If you park in the spots near the stone house, you might get trapped. I’d park near the sanctuary and walk across the lawn!
When you come back to pick-up your students, they will also come to this loop (hopefully right at 12, if you’re just doing STEM, and 2:30 if you’re joining us for Orchestra–we don’t open the doors until everyone is settled and organized). Thursdays are a little smaller and slower than Tuesdays so we shouldn’t have issues with backing up onto 1431.
Please have your student’s name and grade written on a piece of paper in BIG letters in your passenger side window or windshield!

Lunches: Students have lunch at either 12 if they’re staying with us for Orchestra. All lunches need to be stored in their lunch bags–we do not have refrigerator space OR microwaves available. Students who are sent with a lunch to be warmed up will end up eating a cold lunch–and that’s a bummer! Please make sure that their lunch boxes and items are labeled if they’re not disposable!

Upper School Students: Will start in the stone house/library, but be picked up in the Green Building at the end of the day.
