Important Information Re: Changes to Volunteer Background Check Procedures

 

Hello MRHE Families, 

 

At MRH, we know that the support of our community and families is vital to our success. We believe that the diversity of our MRH family is an invaluable asset to our students’ educational environment. Student safety is also a priority. Individuals working directly with students undergo rigorous background checks. 

 

Recently, House Bill 604 was passed by the Missouri Legislature, requiring all unpaid volunteers who may be alone with students to undergo a fingerprint background check and a family care registry check. The MRH Board and administrators have been working to understand and implement the new law in ways that are supportive of families. Individuals who may have had a prior background check which did not include fingerprints, will now have to pass the new checks in order to be considered an MRH volunteer. The new forms are available in the MRHE Front Office OR can be accessed to print via the link below. Completed forms will be sent to the Human Resources department for processing. Human resources staff will then provide an FBI release statement and a coupon code that will allow volunteers to complete all required background checks at the district’s expense.  

 

We hope that the new state law does not discourage our MRH volunteers. We appreciate that the process is now more cumbersome for individuals, however, the goal remains to keep students safe while providing multiple avenues for parent and family involvement.

 

If you plan to serve as an upcoming volunteer (through the school or PTO), serve as a field trip chaperone, or attend the 6th Grade Capstone Trip we will need you to fill out the new documents and return them to the MRHE Main Office.  The new documents are included below.

 

While these forms will be returned to the school, MRHE staff will not see any information on any background check at any time returned to the district. Only our human resources department staff that have handled our staff background checks will have access to volunteer background checks. 

 

Sincerely,

MRH School District 2020-21 Calendar Approved by Board of Education: The Maplewood Richmond Heights School District Board of Education on Thursday night gave final approval to a revised calendar for the 2020-2021 academic year. The calendar overhaul was made necessary by passage of Missouri House Bill 161, which prohibits local school districts from setting an opening date for the school term that is more than 14 calendar days prior to the first Monday in September. The bill was signed into law this summer.

Change to Evening Elementary Concert Location

Based on community feedback, we are changing the location of the evening MRH Elementary Concerts.

 

For all grades (3rd - 6th) the evening concerts will now be held at the MRH High School/Middle School Theater from 6:00-7:00pm. This move will allow for more parking and seating for each concert.

 

The practice concerts that are held the morning of the evening concert will still be held in the Gym at MRH Elementary School.

When should you keep your child home from school? It's not always easy (and sometimes downright difficult!) to tell whether your child's symptoms warrant keeping them home from school. Students developing a fever or experiencing vomiting or diarrhea at school cannot function effectively, and parents will be contacted to take the child home. 

Student Illness Guidelines can be found in the MRH Elementary Family Handbook on pages 19 through 21. Please refer to the handbook or contact Nurse Kathryn (kathryn.whitehouse@mrhschools.net) if you have any questions or concerns.
