IMPORTANT SCHOOL INFORMATION

COVID19-1

Dear Heritage Maricopa Families,

Thank you for your wonderful support. We love having our scholars back on campus! Unfortunately, Covid is still with us, and we have some positive Covid cases at school. Our mitigation plan is in place and classrooms are being cleaned every day at the end of each period. Scholars and teachers are welcome to wear masks, but it is not required.

In an effort to communicate and make sure we are all on the same page, we would like to address the following points:

  • If scholars are not feeling well, please keep them home.  Please do a daily check before sending them to school.

  • Scholars who are sick (not with Covid) may return back to school when they have been symptom free for 24 hours. 

  • If scholars test positive for Covid, they should quarantine for 10 days.

  • If scholars are exposed to Covid and remain symptom free, they may attend school.  In the case of exposure from an immediate family member, we ask scholars to quarantine for 10 days.

Anytime your scholar will be absent from school, we appreciate it when you call and inform the school. Our number is 520-367-3800.

We have no plans to shut down our school or go online. We are keeping ourselves updated on Covid conditions in our community and will communicate regularly to keep you informed.

We love teaching your scholars and hope to have a wonderful school year!

Sincerely,

Heritage Academy Maricopa Administration

This is a high school only event!  Junior high scholars may not go, even if they are “invited” by a high school scholar.  High school scholars may invite one guest from another school, however they need a “guest pass” which they can obtain from Mrs. Ellsworth who will go over Heritage standards.  These scholars must strictly follow Heritage standards, present their pass with the ticket at the door, and show a picture ID.

Scholars must strictly follow Heritage standards with their dress or they will not be admitted to the dance!  Attached is a dress code flyer showing acceptable and unacceptable dress attire.

All physicals should be completed and turned in. Your scholar athlete is not eligible to play if their paperwork is not turned in. As well, please remember, we are a firm no pass-no play institution. Scholars must have a “C” (70%) or better grade in every class to be eligible to play. Grade checks are done every Monday morning. Scholars are responsible for all communication with their teachers regarding grades, assignments, missing work, etc.

 
The HERO Team Store has closed. We can’t wait to see all of our scholars sporting their spirit on, and off campus. Keep your eyes open for individual team spirit wear. Our campus is looking sharp!
 
Have a great weekend!

 CAMPUS TRAFFIC FLOW FROM 8:10 AM – 3:15 PM

Daytime-Driveline

To provide more security at our campus for the scholars, we are amending the areas that visitors are able to access during school hours.
  •  During the hours of 8:10a to 3:15p, all visitors must park in the front visitor parking and enter campus from the front.
  •  Cars will NOT be able to access the lunch area or staff and scholar parking in the back.
  •  Visitors will immediately be ushered into the visitor parking lot.  Please park in a parking spot and not on the curb.  When leaving campus, cars will circle the visitor park lot (counter-clock wise) and exit back out the front. Please see image above.
  •  Due to the limited space, we also ask that you do not start lining up for end of the day pick-up until 3:15p.  We will turn cars away that start lining up before 3:15p.
  •  If you are needing to pick up a scholar early, it must be done before 2:30p.  Scholars will not be released between 2:30p and the end of the school day.

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.  

We apologize for any inconvenience.

My-Hot-Lunchbox

DID YOU ORDER LUNCH? 

HERE ARE A FEW REMINDERS:  

  1. Communicate with your scholar if you ordered lunch for them so they know to pick it up.
  2. If a lunch is ordered and not picked up, it will be donated.
  3. If your scholar is absent, cancel the order or contact the school if you want it saved, otherwise it will be donated.
