  • HVAC Issues

    Posted by Scott Lyons on 1/25/2024 4:15:00 PM

    Heritage High School Families,

     

    Our school’s HVAC system is currently undergoing planned repairs. The unseasonably warm temperatures and humidity caused some portions of the building to become warmer than preferred today. WCPSS Maintenance and Operations are working diligently to repair the system, but we know that the repair will be completed in the coming weeks.

     

    We recognize that conditions are not ideal and want our families to have advanced notice when preparing for Friday’s school day. We will continue to monitor temperatures throughout the building tomorrow but encourage parents to help students dress accordingly.

     

    We apologize for the inconvenience this situation may cause.  

     

    Thank you for your continued support of our school.

     

    Warm regards,

    Scott Lyons

    Principal

  • Revised Exam Schedule

    Posted by Scott Lyons on 1/17/2024 9:30:00 AM

    Good Morning Huskies,

     

    We are experiencing issues with the HVAC system at our school, so we have no heat today.  WCPSS is working hard to get the part needed to fix our system.  As a result, school is cancelled today.  So, we will have to push our exam schedule back one day.  That means we will not have a make up day next Tuesday, as we will have to give a regular EOC exam.  Wednesday, January 24 will still be a workday.  If there is any need for a student to make up an exam, our testing coordinators will work to get them tested when we start second semester.  So, try to get your child to test during the regular administration.  Here is the updated exam schedule:

  • Exam Schedule Due to Two-Hour Delay

    Posted by Scott Lyons on 1/16/2024 8:00:00 PM

    Hello Huskies,

     

    As you have probably already seen, we are on a two-hour delay tomorrow.  This will greatly affect our exam schedule for Wednesday, January 17.  School will not start until 9:25 am, so we will serve lunch between the exams.  Also, school will not let out until 2:18, so no need for permission slips to leave early tomorrow.  The cafeteria will be making lunches, but the lines may be longer than normal.  So, think about sending a lunch from home with your child if you prefer.  Thank you in advance for your flexibility.  We will resume with the published exam schedule on Thursday.  Be careful making it to school, and the first exam will start promptly at 9:25 am.  So, please be on time.

     

    Wednesday Exam Schedule

    9:25 - 11:25      1st period teacher made, CTE, and Biology EOC

    11:25 - 12:13     Lunch

    12:13 - 2:18      2nd period teacher made, CTE, and Biology EOC

     

    Warm regards,

    Hello Huskies,

     

    Happy Friday, Monday, January 15 is Martin Luther King Junior Day.  School is closed.  I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.

     

    Final fall semester exams begin on Wednesday, January 17.  Only students taking the specific exams mentioned on the schedule are required to be on campus.  Access final exam schedule here.  Students can begin entering the building at 6:55am.  For those not riding the bus home after exams, exam early release permission slips for walkers, drivers, and carpoolers are also located at the top of our homepage and here.  One permission form is required for each day of exams.

     

    Second semester begins Thursday, January 25.  Students with questions about their spring semester schedule may email their assigned counselor or see them at the Counselors’ Corner.  Note: course corrections ended at the beginning of the year.  While we are not opening the door for change of heart requests, we will consider course corrections for students who may be enrolled in a course for which they already have credit, enrolled in a course in which they have not met the prerequisite, wish to increase their level of rigor, or need to add a course required for promotion or graduation due to fall semester course failure(s). 

     

    Students participating in the Career and College Promise dual enrollment courses for the spring 2024 semester should provide a copy of their community college schedule and WCPSS Dual Enrollment form to lweaver2@wcpss.net to have their HHS schedule adjusted, if they have not already done so.  Students: be sure to check your WCPSS email for any communication if there may be a scheduling conflict or additional clarification is needed.
