REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR LUNCH!! NO OUTSIDE FOOD IS ALLOWED
We have a large number of forgotten lunches that are being dropped off at campus. Please limit this as much as possible and remind your scholars before they leave the house, to grab their lunch. NO OUTSIDE FOOD (fast food or delivery) is allowed.
All appointments including dentist, doctor, orthodontist, etc. should be scheduled on Fridays or after school. Fridays are the perfect day since we have it off and your scholar(s) will not miss class time.

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.
DID YOU ORDER LUNCH?
HERE ARE A FEW REMINDERS:
Communicate with your scholar if you ordered lunch for them so they know to pick it up.
If a lunch is ordered and not picked up, it will be donated.
If your scholar is absent, cancel the order or contact the school if you want it saved, otherwise it will be donated.
Has your high school scholar created a 4 year plan yet?
Heritage Academy offers advising to every scholar on campus. Mr. McCambridge will coach them along their college prep path, get them enrolled in college while in high school, and set up for future success!
