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.
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. The school does not provide a lunch if your scholar forgets.
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.
PHOTO ID REQUIRED
TO SIGN-OUT YOUR SCHOLAR
If you need to sign-out your scholar, you will be required to show your ID and we will make a copy of it for our records.
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.
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.
LOOKING FOR PHOTOS
Please send any pictures taken at sporting events, performances, or happenings involving Heritage scholars to the yearbook email!!!
