    Hello Huskies,

     

    Monday, May 27 is Memorial Day, and Heritage High School will be closed.  I hope everyone has a great holiday.

     

    You can access our final exam schedule on our homepage or here for seniors and here for underclassmen.

     

    Junior Specific Information

     

    North Carolina law requires all rising 12th graders to receive a meningococcal vaccine booster before starting 12th grade. Parents will need to provide a copy of their child’s immunization record showing proof that the meningococcal vaccine has been completed prior to the first day of school.  This is a 2-dose immunization; the 1st does was required in the 7th grade in Wake County schools.  This requirement is for everyone in the Class of 2021 and after.  Please send your immunization updates to Ms. O’Hara at kohara@wcpss.net or via fax to 919-670-4212 Attn: Ms. O’Hara.  More information can be found on the Wake Gov website here.

     

    Senior Specific Information

     

    Senior Day is Thursday, May 30th.  Senior Day includes mandatory graduation rehearsal, planned Senior-Only activities, lunch, games, honor graduate stoles/cords will be distributed, and more!  Seniors should report to the main gym and find their homeroom teacher at 7:25am on May 30.  Seniors who have a signed Senior Day Early Release Permission Slip will be allowed to leave the Stadium at approximately 12:30pm. The Early Release Permission Slip will be collected from Seniors at that time.

     

    As we get closer to the end of the year, make sure you are in the know!  Review our graduation page here to find out all information about graduation, including the multiple steps seniors must take in order to "be cleared" for graduation and to pick up their graduation tickets.

     

    Seniors with scholarship offers are asked to report them, whether they accept them or not, so that we may have an accurate accounting for the Class of 2024.  We know the Class of 2024 has earned much more than what’s been reported thus far.  Report scholarship earnings here.

     

    We want to celebrate the future plans of ALL of our graduates.  Seniors, if you plan to Enlist in a branch of the military, Enroll in a Community or 4-year college, or be Employed in a career path of choice, we want to see you on the Enlist, Enroll, and Employ screen in the Commons.  Stop by Student Services to scan a QR code to submit your plans or access here.

     

    The Next NC Scholarship is a financial aid program that helps most North Carolinians from households making $80,000 or less pursue higher education by fully covering tuition and fees at any community college or more than half, if not all, of tuition and fees to attend any public university in the state. The best part? Money doesn’t have to be repaid. Students should submit their FAFSA by the Next NC Scholarship priority filing date, 8/15/24, for UNC System schools and for NC community colleges. Learn more at nextncscholarship.org.

    In the spring, students in grades 5-13 will be asked to complete the annual WCPSS Student Engagement Survey. Your child will be given an opportunity to complete this survey during the school day. 

     

    The survey includes questions about teacher-student relationships, relevance of school work, and future aspirations and goals.

     

    The results of this survey help schools monitor their School Improvement Plans, and help the district track student perceptions about their educational experiences. 

     

    You can click here to review the questions included on this survey  and click here to review results of the survey from previous years.

     

    If you have any questions about when the survey will be completed, or if you would prefer your child not complete the survey, please contact your child’s school by Friday, April 12.

    If you have any questions concerning the content of the survey, please contact the Wake County Public School’s Data, Research, and Accountability Department at wcpssdataaccountab@wcpss.net
