Statement of Inclusivity 

Richmond Homeschool Collective accepts, welcomes, and respects families regardless of their race, ethnicity, class, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, religion, or national origin. Our member families come from many different backgrounds and may practice a variety of religious traditions or none at all. We do not uphold any religious worldview, and our classes are taught using currently-held scientific theories, based on empirical evidence.

RHC has moved to a dynamic policy on masking, which changes based on COVID-19 levels. In times of low spread, masks are welcomed, and during medium to high community transmission, they are required indoors (as able). Members may be asked to mask to accommodate those at higher risk of severe illness, and individual facilitators may require masks for class participation.

RHC requires the initial COVID-19 vaccination series, at minimum. Proof of vaccination will be required before proceeding to in-person meet-and-greets.
