    Hello, Huskies,

     

    I hope everyone is staying safe and warm.  As you may have seen from WCPSS, there were extra hours built into the school year this year.  So, students will not have to make up the January 21 “snow day.”

     

    Report Cards will be distributed in advisory on Monday, January 24.

     

    Parents, please consider applying for meal benefits as soon as possible. By submitting a qualifying application, families will also support the district in qualifying for additional funds to support students and learning. Also, the NC Department of Health & Human Services is collecting student free and reduced lunch and attendance data from WCPSS to determine any additional Pandemic Electronic Benefits (P-EBT) that will be issued in the coming months. By not applying for these meal benefits, you will miss the potential opportunity to receive direct P-EBT funds for your family.  Yes, meals will still be free for all students through June 2022 but we still need you to complete a meal benefits application so that students have food and our school can be eligible for extra education funding next school year. Also, this ensures your student is covered for the first few weeks of school next year. Information about applying for Meal Benefits can be found at www.wcpss.net/meals. Help our school continue to receive this funding by completing an application online at MySchoolApps.com. Paper applications can be requested by calling 919-588-3535.

     

    Junior Specific Information:

    Junior Conferences will begin on February 1 and continue through the month of February. During this individual meeting with their counselor, your student will review credits earned, remaining high school graduation requirements, and students will create a “to-do list” to meet their diploma and post high school planning needs.  Conferences are scheduled through 11th grade classes.

     

    Senior Specific Information:

    Seniors seeking to reduce their courseload for spring semester may submit completed applications to their assigned counselor by Wednesday, January 26.

     

    The Trentini Scholarship Application is now available online and at the Counselor Corner.  The application deadline has been extended to Monday, January 24 at 2:30 pm.

     

    Midyear transcripts will be available after senior ranking is complete in early February.  Seniors needing to submit a midyear transcript can begin requesting these documents next Friday, January 28. 

     

    Upcoming Dates:

    January 28 – Midyear Graduation Ceremony, 9:30am

    February 1 – Junior Conferences Begin

    February 2 – Spring Semester Virtual Meet the Teacher Event at 5:30 pm, Virtual Open House/Curriculum Fair at 6:30 pm

    Hello, Huskies,

     

    Second semester begins Wednesday, January 19.  Students will go directly to advisories on Wednesday to get their final second semester schedule.   We are looking forward to a great second semester.

     

    Students with questions about their schedule may email their assigned counselor.  Note: course corrections ended at the beginning of the year.  While we are not opening the door for change of heart requests, we will make 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, or need to add a course required for promotion or graduation due to fall semester course failure(s).

     

    Students engaging in CCP courses for the spring semester should email Ms. Weaver at lweaver2@wcpss.net a completed WCPSS Dual Enrollment form, a screenshot of their college course schedule, and the HHS elective(s) they’d like to drop in order to have their Heritage HS schedule adjusted.

    Hello, Huskies,

     

    I hope everyone had a great holiday and that your new year is off to a great start.  We are going to make it a great 2022.

     

    I am resending the majority of the last weekly message as a reminder as we get back into our routines.

     

    Exam Information:

    • The exam schedule has been posted on the main page of our school website or HERE.
    • Teacher-made exams will be given on Thursday, January 6 and Friday, January 7.
      • These are full days of school, with teacher-made exams being given two periods each day.
      • If a student has a state test for a class or classes, then they will receive instruction and review on January 6 and 7.
      • If a senior is exempt from a teacher-made exam, they do not have to attend the period the exam is given on January 6 or 7 but will need to have transportation to get them off campus for the period they are exempt.
      • If an exempt senior does not have transportation, then the senior can attend the class and study for future exams or read a book.
    • State exams will be administered the week of January 10 – 14.
      • Students only attend school on the day(s) they have an exam.
      • Buses will run at noon the week of January 10, so that all students can head home after they finish their exam.
      • If your student carpools to school, they will need a permission slip indicating that they can leave after their exam and that you have arranged a ride for them. The permission slip can be found HERE.  Bus riders do not need a permission slip.

     

    In preparation for exams, all students are asked to bring their WCPSS device and charger to school on Thursday, January 6 and Friday, January 7.

     

    I understand the frustration many of our carpool families and student drivers are experiencing in the mornings.  Due to the increase in businesses and neighborhoods that have been built around our school recently, it has increased the strain on our roads.  We have worked with the WFPD and they have determined that carpool is running smoothly.  It is just an increase in traffic that is causing delays.  We are looking for ways to increase the efficiency of carpool, but we have some barriers.  Staff members are not trained traffic directors and are not permitted to direct traffic.  Also, Foundation Road is a Town of Wake Forest road and not owned by WCPSS, so all changes to traffic on that road have to be approved.  Currently, our SRO is working with the Town engineers to make the entrance to the student lot two lanes going into the lot and morning carpool area.  This will take time, but we are hopeful to see happen in the future.

     

    If a student needs to leave for an appointment, they need to be checked out by a parent.  This includes student drivers.

     

    PSAT scores are here!  If your student took the PSAT on October 13, remind them to stop by the Counselor Corner during their lunch to pick up their scores.

     

    Congratulations to five of our seniors who finished exams this week to trade their high school classroom for college early.  Best wishes and we will see you back for graduation rehearsal on Tuesday, January 18 at 9:00 am in the main gym.

     

    Warm regards,

  • COVID-19 Cluster/Grupos de casos de contagio del COVID-19

    Posted by Scott Lyons on 12/16/2021 2:30:00 PM

    Heritage High School Families,

     

    Wake County Public Health has identified a cluster of COVID-19 cases at Heritage High  School on our baseball team. A “cluster” is defined by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services as five or more linked cases in the same facility within 14 days.

     

    The individuals in the cluster have been identified and have been directed to isolate or quarantine. Individuals who have been infected or exposed to COVID-19 will not return to campus until they have met the requirements to do so

     

    There is nothing for you to do unless WCPSS or the local health department notifies you that your student may have been exposed.

     

    Based on the guidance of health officials, we do not need to close the school. Our remaining classes and school functions will continue.

    School Cleaning

    Areas that may have been exposed to the virus have been thoroughly cleaned in accordance with NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) and Wake County Public Health guidelines, using an EPA approved disinfectant for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

    Testing

    If you are worried you may have been exposed and are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, you can be tested at one of the free testing locations throughout Wake County. You may also consult with your healthcare provider or call the Wake County COVID Hotline at 888-675-4567. 

     

    Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever or chills, sore throat, a new cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, new loss of taste or smell, diarrhea or vomiting, or a severe headache, especially with a fever.

    Precautions to prevent the spread of germs

    To help prevent the spread of germs, the CDC, NCDHHS, and Wake County Public Health Division emphasize the importance of getting vaccinated if you are eligible and complying with the 3 Ws: 

    • Wear a cloth mask over your nose and mouth.
    • Wait apart, in order to create as much distance as possible. Avoid close contact.
    • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.

    Privacy Laws

    While we understand the concerns of families and employees, the school system is prohibited by state and federal law from disclosing the health information of students or employees. Each individual’s health information is a private matter. No one should publicly declare another employee or student as sick. To protect individual privacy, notifications will not identify anyone by name or contain information that could be used to identify them.

    Emotional support

    Students feeling anxious about this situation should reach out to their school counselor or principal for support. 

     

    Employees feeling anxious about this situation can visit the Employee Assistance Program site on WakeConnect for additional resources and support.

    Additional Resources

    To view data about reported COVID-19 cases, visit these websites:

    Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.

     

    Warm regards,

    Scott Lyons

    Principal

     

     

    Estimadas Familias de la Heritage High School:

     

    El Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado Wake ha identificado un cluster (grupo de casos de contagio del COVID-19) en el equipo de béisbol en Heritage High School. Un "cluster" es definido por el Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos de Carolina del Norte como cinco o más casos vinculados en la misma instalación dentro de los 14 días.

     

    Los individuos del grupo han sido identificados y se les ha ordenado que se pongan en aislamiento o en cuarentena. Las personas que han sido infectadas o expuestas al COVID-19 no regresarán a la escuela hasta que hayan cumplido con los requisitos necesarios

     

    No hay nada que usted tenga que hacer a menos que WCPSS o el departamento local de salud le comunique a usted que su estudiante podría haber estado expuesto.

     

    Según la orientación de los funcionarios de salud, no necesitamos cerrar la escuela. Nuestras clases y funciones escolares restantes continuarán.

    Servicio de limpieza en la escuela

    Las áreas que pueden haber estado expuestas al virus se han limpiado a fondo, de acuerdo con el Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos (NCDHHS) NC y las directrices de Salud Pública del condado Wake, con un desinfectante aprobado por EPA para el SARS-CoV-2, el virus que causa el COVID-19.

    Pruebas

    Si le preocupa haber estado expuesto y usted está experimentando síntomas del COVID-19, puede hacerse la prueba en uno de los sitios de prueba gratuita en todo el condado Wake. Además, usted puede consultar con su proveedor de atención médica o llamar a la línea directa de COVID del condado Wake al 888-675-4567. 

     

    Los síntomas del COVID-19 incluyen fiebre o escalofríos, dolor de garganta, una nueva tos, falta de aire o dificultad para respirar, una nueva pérdida del gusto o del olfato, diarrea o vómitos o un fuerte dolor de cabeza especialmente con una fiebre.

    Precauciones para prevenir la propagación de gérmenes

    Para ayudar a prevenir la propagación de gérmenes, los centros CDC, NCDHHS y la División de Salud Pública del Condado Wake enfatizan la importancia de vacunarse si usted es elegible y cumplir con las 3 W: 

    • Wear: Use un protector facial de tela que cubra su nariz y boca.
    • Wait: Espere a distancia para crear el mayor espacio posible. Evite el contacto cercano.
    • Wash: Lávese las manos o use un desinfectante para manos.

    Leyes de privacidad

    Si bien entendemos las preocupaciones de las familias y los empleados, la ley estatal y federal prohíben al sistema escolar divulgar la información médica de los estudiantes o empleados. La información médica de cada individuo es un asunto privado. Nadie debe declarar públicamente enfermo a otro empleado o estudiante. Para proteger la privacidad individual, las notificaciones no identificarán a nadie por su nombre ni contendrán información que pueda usarse para identificarlos.

    Apoyo emocional

    Los estudiantes que se sientan ansiosos por esta situación deben comunicarse con su consejero escolar o director de la escuela para obtener apoyo. 

     

    Los empleados que se sientan ansiosos por esta situación pueden visitar el sitio del  Programa de asistencia para empleados en WakeConnect para obtener recursos y apoyos adicionales.

    Recursos adicionales

    Para ver datos sobre casos del COVID-19 reportados, visite los siguientes sitios web:

    Gracias por su continuo apoyo y cooperación.
