RE: AS OF JULY 27, 2020, REVISED PLAN FOR START OF SCHOOL
Heritage Academy has a new start date that we think will be better for this time.
ORIENTATION WILL BE THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, AT 6:30 PM. SCHOOL WILL START TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8.
- School will start at 7:50 and end at 2:20, Monday through Friday.
- All classrooms will include social distancing resulting in reduced class sizes.
- For students, grades 7th – 12, it is recommended that they wear masks during hall transitions only, when distancing is not possible.
- All staff and students will have a daily temperature check upon arrival. A temperature of 100.4 or above will result in being sent home.
- Please do not send students to school with symptoms of illness and/or fever that has been reduced by a fever reducer. Students who develop symptoms or fever while at school will be isolated under adult supervision and parents contacted. They must be fever free (without fever reducer) for 48 hours, as well as symptom free, to return to school with a doctor’s note.
- Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the school and in classrooms.
- We will limit all non-essential visitors. No guests for lunch for the time being. We request that those doing business at school wear a mask.
- No sharing of supplies, and we ask that you reduce the amount of materials traveling from home to school.
- We will be improving cleaning protocols in all areas of the school. We have purchased a commercial grade mister to disinfect classrooms daily as needed.
- Increased frequency of hand washing w/practical teaching for good hygiene.
- We will be limiting group gatherings where social distancing is not possible.
- Water fountains will be shut down, and students will be encouraged to bring their own bottled water from home.
We trust this will be something that will work well for the students and parents. We can all do our best to look out, not only for our own students, but for the welfare of all the students and staff.
REGISTRATION: Because we are limiting the size of our classrooms, please make sure you are registered and included in the classroom count.
TUITION PAYMENTS: The tuition is due per year. The yearly amount is broken down into 10 equal payments for your convenience. We are starting a bit later than usual, but we will still complete our school year without adding on too much time at the end. Tuition starts August 1 and ends May 1.
