Book-Pick-Up

AGENDAS – All Junior high scholars (grades 6th-8th) who would like to pick up their Heritage agenda may also do so at this time.

CONSTITUTION WEEK

***SEPTEMBER 14-17***

Constitution-Week-2020

Grade-Checks

Grade Check letters were emailed on Thursday, 8/20 for scholars who currently have a D or an F in a class.  Grades are issued at the semester so there is plenty of time to make improvements.  We do send these letters out on a monthly basis so scholars and parents are informed if there is a concern.  Please reach out to the teachers directly if you have questions.

Just a reminder of Heritage Academy’s policy concerning grades:

High school scholars who receive a “D” or an “F” in a required class will not receive credit and will be required to repeat the class. A student who fails a required class must make up the class at a time other than during the regular school year. This will involve a summer school commitment, either at Heritage, if offered, or at another acceptable school.

In the case of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade scholars, when even a single class or multiple classes are not passed with a “C-“ or better, there will be no promotion to the next grade and the scholar will have to repeat the entire year and all the classes, even the ones he did pass. Heritage
Academy will not promote a scholar into high school who has not mastered junior high school skills.

Be-on-Time-

Starting September 9th, school hours for in-person learning will be from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm.  Scholars can be dropped off starting at 7:30 am and need to be picked up 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  driveline area for their parents, and may not wait in the front office.

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.
PICTURE DAY WILL BE SEPTEMBER 16TH!!

Course-Fees

Please disregard the fee balance showing in your scholar’s PowerSchool account.  There was a glitch with PowerSchool that pre-maturely assessed course fees to your scholar’s account.    Once we move over to our new payment system they will be removed and assessed correctly.  We do have accurate account information to ensure the correct balance will remain.

All fees for fall semester (including winter sports) will be due once we are back on campus in-person.  Payments are only made online.  By way of information, we DO NOT accept cash or checks.   2020-2021 COURSE FEES
