Welcome Back to School!

Welcome back families!  School begins in just a few days.  We are excited to welcome our Heritage Aviators for an outstanding year of learning.  Please be sure to mark your calendars for the following events, including Back to School Night and TK/Kindergarten orientation.

TK/Kindergarten Orientation

Please join us on Monday, August 12 from 2:00-3:00 for Kindergarten Orientation. Please bring your TK or kindergarten student to this event; we request no siblings attend as this orientation is for the parents and students.  During this event we will review valuable information regarding the school program, drop-off and pick-up procedures, and the first day of school.  Class assignments will be shared on this day as well, and families will have the opportunity to meet teachers. 

Teacher Assignments Posted at 4:30 Monday

This year we will be using the Aeries Parent Portal to share your child’s teacher, rather than posting class lists.  We hope this change is more convenient for parent work schedules.  To see your teacher, log-in to your Parent Portal account today at 4:30.  The office will not disclose teacher names over the phone; you must utilize the Parent Portal.

No Emergency Kits

Great news parents: you do not need to send in emergency kits this year!  Our emergency shed is fully stocked with water, emergency rations, and emergency supplies.  However, if your child has an allergy you are encouraged to send a small sealed plastic tub with non-perishable foods, labeled with the child’s name and teacher.  This tub will be stored in the emergency shed along with the school rations and will need to be replenished annually.

First Day Information: Who is my teacher and where do I go?

Teachers will welcome children at their classroom on Tuesday and Wednesday prior to the start of the day.  When your child arrives at Heritage, please send them directly to their classroom.  Your child is welcome to bring their school supplies with them Tuesday or Wednesday.

*The back gate will be open for parents; we STRONGLY encourage the use of this pathway, as there is limited overflow parking at Heritage.  You are welcome to park on Severyns Road to access campus (Attached is a handout about the gate).
