A FEW REMINDERS FROM OUR CELL PHONE AGREEMENT
Stolen or lost cell phones are the sole responsibility of the student and parent(s). Backpacks, purses and even personal clothing pockets are vulnerable for loss or theft. If a cell phone is lost or stolen on school property, please report it to the administration or teacher staff immediately. We will do all that we can do to locate the phone at school but it is highly recommended to file a police report as well.
Respectful communication is part of building strong character, not only for our scholars, but for our families as well. Talking in an angry or disrespectful way to our front office staff or sending condescendingly worded emails does not fit our mission statement. At Heritage, we are committed to providing all students with a safe school environment where everyone is treated with respect. We appreciate your support on this and are so grateful for our Heritage families that are instilling this principle at home! It helps build stronger families, stronger communities, and a stronger nation!
