Dear Heritage Parent/Guardian:

As you are probably aware, Maricopa County Public Health recently confirmed one case of 2019 Novel Coronavirus in Maricopa County. This individual is a member of the ASU community. The risk to Maricopa County residents, including the ASU community, is believed to be low at this time. 

We understand that there is much concern over this new strain, and MCDPH is committed to providing the most up-to-date information at www.maricopa.gov/coronavirus

Because protection from all respiratory viruses are similar, this is a good time to review strategies we can all use to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, such as the flu:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick, and keep sick children home as well.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze, then immediately discard any tissues.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently-touched objects and surfaces.

Heritage Academy staff also take these precautions inside of our classrooms in order to ensure a healthy learning environment for your children.

We will keep you updated with any developments that could impact our families or schools.

If you have any questions, please contact the school.

Sincerely,

Jared Taylor
Heritage Academy Board, Chairman

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.

Course-Fees-Due

ALL 2ND SEMESTER COURSE FEES ARE PAST DUE!

Sports

Our Varsity Softball Heroes opened their season last night against Hasan in Tucson.  Our Lady Heroes were led by our pitcher, Ms. Celsie Espinueva, who pitched an incredible first game.  We had a handful of amazing plays including a home run by Maddie Martin and a triple for Gabi Sorenson.  Our ladies fought hard until the end and we couldn’t be prouder.
