A Note from Principal Coleman:
October 26, 2023
Dear Heritage Academy Heroes & Families,
The Trunk or Treat event last night was packed! Thank you to everyone who came to have fun and pass out candy treats. It was an enjoyable night for everyone!
Attendance: Please call the school before 9:00 a.m. the day of an absence. Leave a message with the reason for the absence if it is before or after school hours. It is important to report all absences to the school office. Thank you!
Open Enrollment for the 2024-2025 school year will begin November 1 and will run through November 15!
With many new families eager for their scholars to benefit from the quality academic environment at Heritage Academy, we anticipate an enrollment to increase.
New Students: If you have friends, family members or siblings that do not currently attend Heritage, but would like to join us next year….they will need to complete the full enrollment application. The 2024-2025 school year option will be available on November 1st. Click here on November 1st. Open Enrollment will end on November 15 and the lottery will run in December. Heritage siblings receive a priority and move to the top of the list.
Current Students – No action is required at this time. Once the re-enrollment portal is available, a link will be sent out to all current scholars to complete the re-enrollment form to reserve their spot for next school year.
Costumes & Halloween Guidance: Halloween on October 31st will be here soon. Each class will enjoy the day in their own way. We want this day to be as fun and safe as possible, so we have made several guidelines to follow:
- All food must be packaged, nut-free, and not home-made. Students will participate in activities within their classrooms, designed by their teachers.
- Students will need to come to school in their costumes if they want to wear them. Costumes are optional. There will be no changing into costumes during school. Costumes must be worn to school if your child chooses this option. If students prefer not to wear a costume, they may have a dress down day in Halloween shirts, orange, black, and follow Heritage dress down guidelines.
- Costumes should be as simple as possible. Masks for any costume are not allowed, since they may obstruct vision.
- Toy guns, sticks, or pretend weapons of any kind are not allowed.
Halloween Parade: There will be an outside Halloween Parade on Tuesday, October 31st at 8:30 a.m. Scholars will walk with their class. Parents may view the parade from marked areas as the scholars walk in a single file line. Access to campus for families will start at 8:15 a.m., and gates will be closed by 8:25 to not disturb the flow of the parade. Pictures can be taken in the Café or specified areas following the parade. Our goal for this day is for our scholars to have fun and enjoy the day, while maintaining structure and safety for all scholars and staff.
