    Posted by Scott Lyons on 6/12/2019 2:50:00 PM

    Hello Graduating Seniors And Their Parents:

     

    This is a graduation reminder for all seniors and families for tomorrow.  It is a big day for over 400 students who have reached a significant milestone.  We wish for everyone to be prepared and ready for the 12:00 pm ceremony.  Seniors should arrive at the Raleigh Convention Center with cap/gown/tassel and required graduation protocol attire by 11:00 am.  Without these things, students should plan to not participate in the ceremony.  All seniors should enter doors at the corner of Cabarrus Street and McDowell Street.  Students should give themselves plenty of time for travel to downtown Raleigh, parking, and walking to the Convention Center.  Doors will open for guests at 11:15 am.  Tickets are required for all guests for entry.  There will be staff available to assist those who require assistance getting to the handicap seating area.  There are several areas marked for wheelchairs throughout the guest seating area.  There is handicap parking throughout parking decks as well as under the Marriott hotel.

     

    Please take a moment to read the information on the senior page of the website regarding prohibited items at the Convention Center.  Click on the graduation section to pull up the document provided to seniors during rehearsal.

     

    Immediately after the ceremony, it will be congested.  Seniors and parents are encouraged to communicate prior to the ceremony to determine where you will meet for celebration and pictures.

     

    The Raleigh Convention Center staff will seek to clear the exhibit hall area to prepare for the next ceremony, so please be mindful and make your way upstairs to exit the convention center when you can.

    We look forward to continuing the Heritage tradition of having a great graduation ceremony.  If you have questions or last minute needs, the main office will be open beginning at 7:00 am.  You can call 919-570-5600 and press “pound” to connect to the receptionist.

     

    Warm regards,

    Scott Lyons, Principal

    Hello, Huskies,

     

    We are preparing to close out the 2018-2019 school year.  With only a few days remaining of instruction, students should make every effort to complete what is required to secure a final grade that is most reflective of their work and knowledge in the respective course.  Report cards will be mailed home mid-June and final transcripts will be sent to colleges by the end of June.  You will also be able to access the parent portal to view final grades once posted and verified by teachers.

     

    With only a few days remaining, we are asking again for you to partner with us in ensuring that your child adheres to the dress code.  We have observed an increase in hats worn in the building and shorts not meeting the dress code standard.  The dress code also remains in effect during exams.  Please have this conversation with your child so that they are not subject to consequences for violating the dress code.

You can access the permission slip on the main page of the website or students can pick up a copy from Student Services or the Counseling Corner during their lunch.

    Hello, Huskies,

     

    AP exams are now complete.  Thank you for supporting your children in this endeavor.  Please encourage your student to keep his/her Student Pack in a safe place so that they can access scores online in July.  Students who registered for but did not attend their AP exam will be assessed the unused exam fee, which as a reminder, the state does not cover.  This will be posted to student fines by early next week.

     

    Next week is a week of celebration.  Senior Class Night, “Graduation Part I,” is Wednesday, May 22, at 6:30 pm in the Heritage High School Gym.  Doors open for families and guests at 5:45 pm.  Parking will be available in front and rear parking lots.  A large crowd is anticipated for this event, so you are encouraged to arrive well in advance of the senior class processional at 6:30 pm.  The class night program is followed by an reception to celebrate seniors and families.

     

    Thursday, May 23 is our annual whole school awards ceremony.  It begins at 8:00 am in the main gym.  All parents are invited to attend.  You will receive a letter in the mail by early next week if your child will be presented with an award.  The PTSA will host a brief reception after the ceremony program to celebrate award recipients and parents.  Seniors will also be in their cap and gown during this event.

     

    The final exam schedule for this semester is now posted to the main page of our school website.  Please take a moment and review with your student.  Attendance at final exams are even more critical as we are closing out for this school year.  Any absences may cause delays in receiving final grades and report cards.

     

    We are seeking parent volunteers again to assist with our senior class night reception on Wednesday, May 22.  If you can help with either set up, service or breakdown of the reception, please contact Student Services extension or email lafaison@wcpss.net.  You can also go directly to the sign up genius link:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080848A9AB2EA31-senior

    This is a large scale event, and we welcome any who are able to assist with this celebration.

     

    Exploring College Options will host an information session on Sunday, May 19 at 7:00 pm at Embassy Suites in Cary for students and families wanting to know more about the admissions process for Duke, Georgetown, Harvard, UPenn and Stanford.  Preregistration is encouraged.  Go to exploringcollegeoptions.org, click on the NC when you see the state map, then register.

     

    For Seniors Only:

    Seniors received critical information in advisory today via a PowerPoint presentation from their advisory teacher that includes Senior Day, Senior Night, graduation attire, rehearsal, graduation ticket updates and more.   Senior parents can also view this information on the senior page of the website.

     

    Today is the last day to RSVP the number of attendees for the Senior Class Night and Reception event on May 22.  You can email lafaison@wcpss.net or call 919-570-5600, ext. 20712.  While we do not require tickets, we would like to plan accordingly with food needs.

     

    The senior intention survey is now available for seniors to complete.  Many have already done so in their advisory.  Parents should resist the urge to complete this survey as duplicate responses create issues in reporting accurate information to the state. Please ask your senior if this task is completed.

     

    The final day of instruction for seniors is Tuesday, June 4.  Exam exemption policy is in effect until the end of this day.  Exams begin on Wednesday, June 5.

     

    Graduation rehearsal is Tuesday, June 4 from 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm at the Raleigh Convention Center.  This is mandatory in order to participate in the graduation ceremony.  Seniors should plan to arrive by 3:15 pm so that they can be seated and ready to begin by 3:30 pm.  There will be a Husky bus to transport students to the Convention Center.  The bus will leave HHS at 2:00 pm.  Interested seniors must sign up in Student Services.  Seniors who are planning to drive or ride with a friend will also be released at 2:00 pm that day to give them ample time for arriving safely, securing parking and walking to the convention center.  A map of downtown parking is posted on the senior page of the website.

     

    In preparation for the June 13 graduation we are securing support for guests who may need wheelchair access, a sign language interpreter or language translator.  Please send an email to lafaison@wcpss.net with details of the need as soon as possible to ensure accommodations can be made.

     

    All seniors should have by now submitted their scholarship offers.  It is important for us to have an accurate accounting of Class of 2019 scholarship results.  Please check with your senior to ensure we have their scholarship information.  If offers are just being received, we would also like to have that information included in our totals.

     

    Senior Baccalaureate program will be Sunday, June 9 at 4:00 pm at Richland Creek Church.  If you wish to volunteer in any capacity, you can reach out to Carson Cobb at Carsoncobb@northwake.com .  The parent committee is also seeking students to participate in the program.  Interested persons can also reach out to Mr. Cobb.

    Hello, Huskies,

     

    We have completed week one of AP exams, and there is another full week to go.  Most exams are off campus, but Heritage High does provide transportation to the off-site locations.  As a reminder, CollegeBoard charges an unused test fee, so if your student requests an exam but cancels or does not attend, the fee will be posted as a fine to the student account and must be paid prior to the end of the school year.

     

    The deadline to submit course verifications was today and completes our course registration process for 2019-2020.  Student schedules will be released mid-August.  Students planning to request midyear or early graduation or submit applications for dual enrollment or internship still have a bit more time to submit paperwork.

     

    Upcoming senior events include:  May 22 – Senior Day for seniors at school and senior class night and reception for families at 6:30 pm.  Graduation rehearsal is mandatory for all seniors participating and will be on Tuesday, June 4 at 3:30 pm at the Raleigh Convention Center.  Seniors should not schedule events on this day, which will create a conflict with the ability to attend rehearsal, especially college orientations.  Colleges provide several dates to attend, and Heritage High seniors should choose a date other than June 4.

     

    All seniors should have by now submitted their scholarship offers.  It is important for us to have an accurate accounting of Class of 2019 scholarship results.  Please check with your senior to ensure we have their scholarship information.

     

    Senior parents, please RSVP the number of attendees for the Senior Class Night and Reception event on May 22.  You can email lafaison@wcpss.net or call 919-570-5600, ext. 20712.  While we do not require tickets, we would like to plan accordingly with food needs.

  • Code Yellow Lockdown

    Posted by Scott Lyons on 4/29/2019 11:00:00 AM

    Heritage High Parents,


    Safety is the top priority of our school. This is why I wanted to provide you with information about an incident that happened at school this morning. First, please know that all students were safe during the duration of the incident.


    At about 10:30 a.m. today, we were notified of police activity in the area and we went into a code yellow community lockdown. In a community lockdown, all exterior doors of the school are locked and no one is allowed to enter or exit the building. In code yellow, students are permitted to move between classrooms and the school operates "business as usual" with the exception of no outside activities.


    We were given the all clear announcement from WCPSS Security at 10:42 a.m. and the lockdown was lifted.


    We greatly appreciate the relationship we have with law enforcement and WCPSS Security in responding to such situations. They work closely with us to ensure the safety of our students every day.

     

    If you have any questions or concerns, please call the school office.  Thank you for your continued support of our school.


    Warm regards,

    Scott Lyons

    Principal

Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $10 for students. Ticket prices for both Wednesday performances are only $7. Please visit the school website for more information.

     

    Our District 1 Board Member, Heather Scott, will be meeting with parents interested in sharing their thoughts or who have questions tomorrow, April 27 at the East Regional Library in Knightdale from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm.  All are invited.

     

    You should have received a WCPSS parent survey from Panaroma via email.  If you have not provided WCPSS feedback, please take the time to do so in order to give input and inform future planning.  If you did not receive the email, you can access the survey on the main page of our Heritage High School website.

     

    Students can still submit course verification forms.  This year, all students must return signed forms, with or without changes.  As the deadline approaches, we invite parents to engage students once more in reviewing course selections for next year.

     

    We are happy to confirm that we are able to increase the number of graduation tickets from 7 to 10.  We will announce extra ticket availability and request process during rehearsal in June. 

     

    Jostens has corrected and reprinted graduation announcements.  They can be picked up in Student Services.

     

    AP Exams will be from May 6 – 17.  By now, AP students should have completed their preadministration session.  Exam locations are now posted to the Advanced Placement page of the website.  Students do not have to attend classes on the day of their exam provided they submit a signed note by a parent or guardian giving permission to not attend and communicate with teachers in advance regarding work they may miss.  Students planning to drive or ride to the offsite locations must turn in the parent permission form as well.    

     

    Our end of year celebrations are approaching.    Please mark your calendar for Senior Night, May 22, and our annual whole school awards on May 23.  If you did not meet today’s deadline to submit a community awards notice for you child, it has been extended to Tuesday, April 30.  Forms are available on the Student Services page of the website.

     

    This is a final call for all seniors, including student athletes who have received offers to play, to submit your scholarship offers to be added to the Class of 2019 totals.   We also need all seniors with scholarship offers to report them, whether accepted or not, so that we may prepare an accurate accounting for the Class of 2019.  In order to be included in the senior night program, scholarship offers must be reported by May 10.

     

     

    Senior Baccalaureate program will be Sunday, June 9 at 4pm at Richland Creek Church.  If you wish to volunteer in any capacity, you can reach out to Carson Cobb at Carsoncobb@northwake.com .  The parent committee is also seeking students to participate in the program.  Interested persons can also reach out to Mr. Cobb.

    Hello Huskies,

     

    Spring break is from April 15 – April 22, and Heritage High School will be closed.  Faculty and staff will also be enjoying a much-deserved break.  Students should return on April 23.  We ask you to remind students to plan accordingly, particularly those who are working to meet deadlines for scholarships and other applications that require transcripts or signatures.

     

    Jostens will return for a final delivery on Monday, May 6.  We have also been notified by Jostens of an error on the announcements.  They are correcting and reprinting.  We will contact students when the new announcements are available for pickup. Jostens sincerely apologizes for the error.

     

    AP Exams will be from May 6 – 17.  There will be a mandatory pre-administration session for all test takers on Tuesday, April 23.  Students chose their session when registering for exams.  They will receive all details regarding testing locations, transportation and other necessary information regarding test day.  AP Teachers will be providing review sessions for students, regardless of whether the course was taken in fall or spring.  Students can pick up a copy of the review session details from the Counseling Corner when they return from break.  Seniors who missed the senior fee deadline can still pay the fee via online payments or in person at the main office. 

     

    We are already preparing for our end-of-year celebrations.    Please mark your calendar for Senior Night, May 22, and our annual whole school awards on May 23.  If your son or daughter has earned recognition for a specific accomplishment in the community, we would like to recognize him or her during the whole school awards ceremony.  You can access and complete the Awards Notice form, which can be downloaded from the Student Services page of our website. 

     

    We also need all seniors with scholarship offers to report them, whether they are going to accept them or not, so that we may prepare an accurate accounting for the Class of 2019.  In order to be included in the senior night program, scholarship offers must be reported by May 10.

     

    Parent volunteers have secured senior baccalaureate details.  It will be Sunday, June 9 at 4:00 pm at Richland Creek Church.  If you wish to volunteer in any capacity, you can reach out to Carson Cobb at Carsoncobb@northwake.com.  The parent committee is also seeking students to participate in the program.  Interested persons can also reach out to Mr. Cobb.
