  • Advisory Codes and Supply Lists

    Posted by Scott Lyons on 8/15/2020 6:30:00 PM

    Hello, Huskies,

     

    We are happy to inform you that several items were just posted to the start of school area of the website to assist students for Monday morning.  You can view the advisory assignments, supply lists as well as the staff directory in the Start of School information section of the HHS website under the calendar on the main page.  

     

    On Monday morning, students should identify their advisory class based on grade level and last name.  They need to login into Wake ID, and access the google classroom for their advisory with the code found on the document on the HHS website.  They will then see the "google meet" link to connect to their advisory teacher.  Students are encouraged to begin logging in around 8:30am in case they encounter technical difficulties.  Troubleshooting support emails and phone numbers are also on the advisory document.  In addition, we have uploaded the supply list by course to the website in the Start of School Information section.

     

    Thank you for your patience as we continue to work through the weekend to prepare for the first day of school.  We look forward to engaging students on Monday.

     

    Warm regards,

    Scott Lyons

    Hello, Huskies,

     

    Monday is the first day of orientation for the school year.  All students are expected to participate.  If you are still waiting on a device from WCPSS, you should be receiving communication from them soon.  So, if you cannot connect to your advisory on Monday, your teacher will get you the information.  You can use a smart phone to connect if you have one.  The two week orientation schedule is on our website.  For the week of August 17, students will attend advisories from 9:00 am – 10:00 am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  On Tuesday and Thursday, students will meet with counselors virtually.  Review the orientation schedule to see when your meeting with the counselor is scheduled.

     

    The Google Meet codes for advisories will be in the teacher’s Google Classroom.  Advisory teacher assignments and codes will be posted prior to Monday morning in the start of school section of the website.

     

    On Tuesday and Thursday of next week we will have material distribution events from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm.  In order to know if your child needs to pick up anything from the school, we will send out a list on Monday by course.  Additional activities during the material pick up event on Tuesday and Thursday:

    ·         Juniors and Seniors can drop off parking applications

    ·         Athletic Boosters are available for pre-order pick ups.

     

    PowerSchool is for students to view tentative schedules.  The demand for meeting needs of virtual academy and blended learning programs has significantly decreased the ability to allow for course changes.  Counselors continue to respond to course correction requests.  A few reminders:  the virtual line for schedule assistance exists in the heritagehsschedule@wcpss.net email.  If you attempt to email a counselor it will be rerouted.  Duplicate requests do not increase processing time.  Please remember to offer an extra bit of patience to our staff as we are working through end of summer changes and accommodating schedules for virtual and blended learning students.

     

    Juniors and Seniors will be able to submit required paperwork for parking on campus beginning August 18.  More information is posted in the start of school section of the website.

     

    If you missed the Senior Orientation or Senior Info Night, recorded presentations and PowerPoints are posted.  Seniors can still view the breakout videos and are encouraged to as this information is vital to navigating necessary tasks during the senior year.

     

    The new parent orientation session is posted in the Student Services section of the website for anyone who missed the virtual meetings or needs to revisit information shared.

     

    Seniors, on August 17th at 11:00 am, the Heritage High School PTSA invite you to celebrate the first day of your senior year.  Decorate your cars and join the fun!  The car parade will begin as you turn on Foundation Drive.  Please stay in your car throughout the parade.  As you turn into the student parking lot, PTSA will have volunteers directing traffic.  You will drive through four stations:  1)  Receive a number for your car, 2)  Picture taken in front of the stadium entrance, 3)  Judging in front of the practice field and 4)  Receive a treat by the spirit rock.

     

    Upcoming Events and Times:

    Tuesday, August 25, 2 – 4pm:  Fall Semester Virtual Meet the Teacher Event

    August 17:  PSAT Registration begins.  See flyer in Student Services section of website

    Hello, Huskies,

     

    I hope everyone is having a great summer given the current situation with the pandemic!

     

    If you registered for the Virtual Academy, you will receive an email confirmation letter on Monday.  If you do not receive an email, please reach out to jcdrake@wcpss.net.  Your information may need to be updated in our system.

     

    We have made a couple of adjustments to the bell schedules and they should be on our website next week.  Everyone will follow the Reopening bell schedule, whether on Virtual Academy or on Plan B Transition, since all will be taught virtually at first.  When we move to Plan B, rotating students in and out of the building, then we will have two separate bell schedules (Virtual Academy and Blended Learning).

     

    All new students to WCPSS will receive Wake ID access next week via US mail.  Be sure to look for this important information.  They will need this information to access PowerSchool for schedules as well as other school related applications.

     

    Monday, August 3 is the deadline for seniors to submit midyear graduation or reduced course load applications.  These forms are on the academic page of our website.  Click on the Course Registration tab and scroll down to find and download the form.  Email all completed applications to dcwilliams@wcpss.net.

     

    Schedules for all students, virtual academy and blended learning, will be available to view on August 12 via PowerSchool.    We thank you in advance for your patience if you are calling and emailing with questions, as full staff does not return until August 13.  We will provide instructions for students to submit schedule questions once schedules are available to view.  You are encouraged to visit our “start of school” section of the website often as more information gets posted.  You will need to scroll down beyond the calendar to view this information. 

     

    Upcoming Events and Times:

    August 11 (1pm, 2pm, 3pm) Virtual Senior Orientation for Students

    August 11 (5:30pm, 6:30pm) Virtual Senior Info Night for Seniors and Parents

    August 12 (1pm, 2pm, 3pm) Virtual Early Start Day for Freshmen and New Students

    August 12 (5:30pm, 6:30pm) Virtual New Parent Orientation

     

    Access codes for all these events will be posted in the start of school box on the main page of the website as well as via email as we get closer to the event dates.

     

    WCPSS continues to post new information in the “Return to Campus” website.  You can access it from our school website and click on COVID 19 Updates or go directly to www.wcpss.net/returntocampus. 

     

    The state immunization law requires that all students, including those participating in the Virtual Academy, are up to date with immunizations by the first day of school.  For us, this is August 17.   There are no extensions for this date.  Seniors are now required to have the meningococcal vaccine.  Also, for Seniors a 2nd meningococcal vaccine may be required for students by 17 years of age or entering 12th grade. Please consult your doctor to see if you meet this requirement. You are encouraged to immediately check with your doctor to ensure your child is up to date and provide the school with an updated copy of the shot record.  If you do not have a healthcare provider, you can call 919-562-6300 to schedule an appointment at the Health and Human Services Northern Regional Center.  Please do not delay in providing this information to our school.  You can email the records to pjenks@wcpss.net, fax to 919-670-4212, or drop off records in the designated box at the front of the school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8am to 3pm.  Full details will be available in the Start of School section of the HHS website.

     

    Abbreviated summer office hours are Tuesday and Wednesday, 8am – 3pm.  You’re encouraged to call the office first. If you need to reach someone, you may leave a message at our main number 919-570-5600. 

     

    If your child has completed the Driver’s Education program and received a completion certificate, you may request an appointment for a Driver’s Eligibility Certificate. Send email to dcwilliams@wcpss.net to get started.  You may visit full instructions in the Start of School section of our school website.
