Our 2nd semester is off to a great start, and we appreciate you and your support as we work together to move Heritage Academy Maricopa forward. We are also grateful to the City of Maricopa and their significant efforts to support our campus. In visiting with City representatives earlier this week, a concern was expressed regarding vehicle traffic around our campus, specifically that which occurs at the end of the school day along W. Heroes Way leading into campus, and along St. Michael way into the neighborhood northwest of campus. Many parents are parking along both sides of the road, in order to wait to pick up their scholar as they leave school.
As parents who have also had to deal with the frustration of a school pickup/drop-off drive line, we understand the desire to minimize the time that a drive line may require. However, the traffic situation that is being created by vehicles being parked along the roadway is causing a hazardous situation, which is dangerous for our scholars, and for the residents of the neighborhoods around our campus.
As has been requested in previous emails, please do not park along the roadways adjacent to campus. The preferred method of picking up your scholar is the established drive line on our campus. The drive line does require some time, but has been designed with the safety of parents, scholars, and neighbors in mind. We appreciate your consideration in this matter. If you choose not to utilize the drive line, please arrange to meet your scholar off-campus in a location that does not cause safety or traffic concerns.

Calling all STEM Scholars!
Lockheed Martin has launched a new scholarship program to provide opportunities to students who want to build their talents and change the world!
Beginning in 2019, we are awarding 200 scholarships of $10,000 per student – renewable each year. The program will continue to add up to 200 new recipients each year, and will be open to individuals studying engineering or computer science that demonstrate financial need and come from underrepresented or underserved communities.
The scholarship program doesn’t end with a check. Mentoring opportunities will be a key component of the program, and recipients will also be eligible for Lockheed Martin internship opportunities following their freshman year in college.
Scholarship applications for the 2019-2020 school year has ended on March 12, 2019. Applications for the 2020-2021 school year will open in January 2020.
