Germs

Is your Scholar not feeling well? 

When is your scholar too ill to be at school?

FEVER:  If a scholar has a temperature of 100 degrees or more, they should stay at home.  To return, they need to be fever-free without taking medication for 24 hours.

VOMITING AND DIARRHEA:  Please keep your scholar home if they are experiencing vomiting and/or diarrhea.  To return, they need to be free of symptoms for at least 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting and/or diarrhea.

ANTIBIOTIC TREATMENT:  If your child is on antibiotics for a communicable disease, such as strep throat, pink eye, etc, keep them home until they have been on the antibiotics for 24 hours.  

TO REPORT YOUR SCHOLAR ABSENT FROM SCHOOL:

Please call the office at 520-367-3800 by 10:00 AM 

Tissue-scaled

WE ARE RUNNING THROUGH KLEENEX BOXES LIKE CRAZY!!!      

We are gladly accepting donations of Kleenex!  Please send 2-3 boxes with your scholar next week and drop them off in the office. 

Attendance-Reminders

SCHOLARS MUST BE SIGNED IN/OUT IN THE OFFICE WHEN THEY ARRIVE OR LEAVE CAMPUS!    

If your scholar is arriving to/leaving campus for the day, they must sign in/out in the office.  If they are marked absent for a class and there is not a record of them signing in/out, they will be logged for ditching.  The first offense is 1 day out of school suspension.  Thank you for calling in to report your scholar’s absences.  We appreciate your cooperation!  

Be-on-Time-

Please pick up your scholars after school by 4:00 pm!  

The front office closes at 4:00 pm.  Scholars will not be permitted in the building after this time without a teacher and will need to wait in the ait in the driveline area for their parents, and may not wait in the front office area.

We would also like to remind families that Heritage Academy has a strict Tardy Policy. 

TARDY POLICY: If you scholar is tardy more than 3 times to school, they will be pulled into a “sweep,” (similar to a detention) for the remainder of 1st period, and every tardy after.  They simply are not allowed to interrupt their first hour class coming in late.  Parents will be called on the scholar’s 5th tardy, and a meeting will be scheduled at their 7th tardy.  

Why does being on time matter?  At Heritage, we want all of our scholars to learn traits that will help them be successful in their lives.  

Here are just a few benefits of punctuality: 

  • INTEGRITY
  • DEPENDABILITY
  • LEADERSHIP
  • RESPECT
  • DISCIPLINE
  • ORGANIZED
  • PRODUCTIVE
  • LESS – STRESSED
  • SELF-CONFIDENCE
  • CREDIBILITY

Here are some tips to arrive on time: 

  1. PACK IT UP THE NIGHT BEFORE – Uniforms, gym clothes, shoes, jackets, sports equipment, water bottles, homework, lunch etc. 
  2. TIME TRICKS – set alarms, change the clocks in your house to be early, tell yourself school starts at 7:45 (not 8:00).
  3. ANTICIPATE DELAYS- Add 25% of your travel time to your commute for traffic, gas, emergencies, etc.

ACES
 PARENT INFORMATION NIGHT

We will be hosting a parent education night in partnership with the Maricopa Police Department and the Be Awesome Youth Coalition on April 7th @ 6:30 pm here at the Maricopa Campus.

Adverse Childhood Experiences are stressful or traumatic experiences that disrupt the safe nurturing relationships and environments that children need to thrive. Exposure to ACES can lead individuals towards the adoption of unhealthy habits and the onset of negative long-term health.  Dr. Shef Gandhi, Psy.D, Licensed Pyschologist, will be our guest speaker and will talk to us about how PCE (Positive Childhood Experiences) can impact parenting and raising emotionally healthy children.
