TONIGHT! TONIGHT! TONIGHT!
Join us tonight for our Junior High Movie Night! The movie choices will be “Home” or “Finding Nemo!” There will also be food and games! Cost is $5.
Heritage standards apply: No sleeveless or midriff shirts; shorts must be 4″ from the middle of the knee and skirts must come to the middle of the knee: no cargo pants or shorts; no pants or shorts that are ripped or torn; no leggings; and no inappropriate slogans or symbols on the clothing.
For this 1 activity ONLY, you may wear your Heritage appropriate pajamas. If you are not dressed properly you will be sent home. Scholars can also bring blankets, pillows etc.
We have had a couple cases of COVID on campus since school has started and we would like to remind you of our protocols.
If your scholar is not feeling well at all, keep them home. If your scholar tests positive for COVID, call the school and report. We need to be able to let families know there has been exposure. Scholars who test positive will need to be quarantined for 10 days from the first day of symptoms.
MASKS – We want you to be aware that due to class sizes social distancing will be limited. Masks remain optional.
DAILY HEALTH SCREEN – We will ask families to do a health screen every day BEFORE their scholar comes to school.
Scholars must not come to school if they exhibit any of the following symptoms:
● fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, or chills
● shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
● muscle aches
● sore throat
● congestion or runny nose
● new loss of taste or smell
HAND WASHING & CLEANING – Scholars will be asked to wash hands or use hand sanitizer at the beginning and the end of each class. They will also be asked to clean their desk at the end of each class. Cleaning by scholars has been and always will be a part of being at Heritage.
ONE WAY HALLWAYS – These will remain for COVID reasons and for the number of scholars we have on campus. Please have your scholar see us if they are still struggling with finding anything due to one way hallways.
CLOSED CAMPUS – We ask that parents only come to campus to sign a scholar in or out. Dropping off forgotten items needs to be limited to emergencies only.
Thank you for your cooperation with all of the above in helping everyone stay healthy.
To better understand symptoms of the COVID-19 virus, we encourage families to refer to the Arizona Department of Health Services website: https://www.azdhs.gov/

“Building America’s Heroes, Together”
Heritage Academy’s mission is, “Building America’s Heroes, Together”. In order to encourage our scholars to live up to their title of Hero, we ask that they complete 10 hours of service each school year. Along with this, we ask that they attend 1 sporting event, 1 fine arts event, and 1 scholar council/school promoted event.
We are dedicated to helping to build strong character and feel that by having scholars support each other at these events by practicing service, we truly will be “Building America’s Heroes”. Scholars will have a service hour tracker that will stay at school and be distributed to them in their Citizenship class in August.

DON’T GET BLOCKED IN
SCHOLARS SHOULD NOT BE SIGNED OUT BETWEEN 2:30-3:40 PM
Need to schedule an appointment for your scholar during school hours? We ask that you try and schedule appointments on Fridays when the scholars are out of school. We know this isn’t always possible due to days and hours of operation, however due to our driveline, we are not able to sign scholars out after 2:30 pm. If you have an appointment for your scholar, we will need you to pick them up before 2:30 pm or wait until school is out to pick up your scholar.
