Heritage Families –
Thank you for your support and patience with our communications this weekend and our delays in our building. Please read this letter in its entirety. We have included a lot of information for you.
We are pleased and excited to announce that we will be starting in our new building on Monday, October 28! We will be moving in to our first floor only. As mentioned previously, we will still be on an active construction site. Because of this, it is extremely important to follow all traffic flow, drop off times, pick up times, etc.
We have attached the driveline map for you to help with the flow on Monday morning. The city has specifically asked us to follow this driveline pattern as to always have an open fire lane and safe scholars. It is a single lane flow with drop off at the back of the building through a smaller parking lot and then drop off. Campus is open for drop-off starting at 7:30 am. Scholars will not be permitted on the property until that time. All scholars need to be picked up and/or off campus by 4:00 pm. At pick up time, we will ask you to circle back out of the driveline if your scholar is not there to meet you right away to keep the line moving. Please have a plan with your scholar as to where to meet you (if you are in the front of driveline or back, etc).
We will have a staff members directing traffic near the front parking lot. We do NOT have any parking lots that can be used to park and drop off your scholar. Please know if you head down the street to our gate you will already be considered in the driveline and have to go through driveline to go back the other way. Please be courteous to those directing traffic. We cannot have scholars dropped off at the front gate for safety reasons.
There is a back fire lane that goes out towards the Catholic church. This is a CLOSED road. We are not allowed to use it. It is a FIRE LANE only.
We have also attached a layout of the first floor with room numbers. You can view your scholar’s schedule on Powerschool before Monday if they would like to know ahead of time the room numbers in which they will meet. Your scholar’s schedule will remain the same, simply with a different room number. During first hour, teachers will review your scholar’s schedule with them and give a short tour of the building.
We will have lists posted around campus of where each scholar’s first hour will be. All staff members and PTO parents will be helping scholars find their first hour after we have a short 1st floor ribbon cutting ceremony. We will gather our scholars on the north side of the building for a short ceremony and some pictures before we actually enter the building. We will start this ceremony right around 7:45 am. You are welcome to stay for our short ceremony if you would like.
To lessen the chaos, we ask that parents do not come into the building on Monday morning unless absolutely necessary. If you need to come in, please park in the front parking lot area and only enter the admin door (the one story portion of the building) to report to the front office. If you simply cannot wait to see the building, we will give a quick tour once all scholars are in class right around 8:15 ish.
We will have an open house for parents when both floors are open. We will tentatively plan for the evening of November 12.
Thank you again for your great scholars, your patience, your understanding and all the support! We couldn’t do all this without you!
