Here's what you need to know!
Students at St. Philip's wear uniforms every day. Our uniform is a royal blue collared polo shirt with the St. Philip's text and crest; khaki pants, shorts, or skirt; socks and tennis shoes. On Friday, students may wear jeans or denim shorts in place of their khakis. The number of uniform sets you have is up to you, but we generally recommend 5 sets.
Royal blue collared polo shirts may be purchased at a store of your choice and taken to Southwest Uniforms, 223 N. Getty St. in Uvalde to be embroidered with the official text and crest.
During colder weather students may not wear hoodies/sweatshirts/half-zip jackets unless they are royal blue and embroidered with the St. Philip's text and crest. Full zip/button jackets or sweaters may be any color and do not need to have the St. Philip's logo.
Where's the Office and When is it Open?
The school office can be hard to find! The easiest way to get to the school office is to park on Getty Street by the wooden St. Philip's Episcopal Church and School sign. Follow the sidewalk all the way up and you will run into the school office door.
The school office is open regular school days from 7:30 am - 4:00 pm. Summer hours are as follows: June 8:30-11:30 a.m., August 8:30-3:30 p.m. Additional times can be arranged by calling 830-278-1350.
Any time parents/guardians or relatives visit campus they must check in at the school office and receive a visitor's pass. If you are not known to office staff please be prepared to show a photo ID.
School supplies may be purchased at your favorite store or through EduKit. Edukit is a service that you sign in to, enter your child's grade, and your supplies are ordered for you. Large or bulk items are sent directly to the campus!
2K, 3K and Pre-K
2K, 3K and Pre-K students are often still mastering toilet training and should have a change of clothes at school or in their backpack. This should include the uniform as well as underwear and socks.
2K, 3K and Pre-K students also nap each day and will need a blanket to use during this time.
Snacks, Drinks, and Lunch
Your child may bring a snack and water bottle each day to have during class. The 3K class assigns a parent to bring snacks for the week for every child.
We have contracted School Eatery to provide a hot meal for students each day. School Eatery has an app you can use to order or you can use their website to order.
Home packed lunches are welcome but should be relatively healthy and should NOT include carbonated or sugary beverages. If a student brings lunch from home, please use a thermos to keep foods warm and cold packs to keep lunches cool. We cannot microwave lunches.
If a parent chooses to bring their child lunch, we ask that they write the child’s name on the lunch and take it to the school office. It is not acceptable to drop off lunches in their classrooms or directly with the student.
Children without lunches will be given a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Parents will be billed $1.75 for the lunch.
If a student leaves for lunch, a parent or guardian, MUST sign-out the child before the student may leave.
We ask parents NOT to have lunch with their children for the first two weeks. This is the adjustment time for students who feel anxious when their parent must leave.
