    Hello, Huskies,

     

    I wanted to start the weekly message by saying how thankful I am for the Heritage community.  We have a great school, great students, great families, great educator sand a great community.  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

     

    Wednesday, December 2 is an asynchronous day.

     

    “Bell” Schedule for the Week of November 30 (except for Wednesday, which is Asynchronous):

    First Period                 8:00 – 9:00

    Second Period             9:45 – 10:45

    Third Period                10:55 – 11:55

    Lunch                          11:55 – 12:55

    The final exam schedule for first semester is posted on the Heritage High School website.  All teacher-made exams will be taken remotely and all state tests will be given in person.  For teacher-made exams, the score will count 20% of the final grade unless that brings the student’s average down.  If it brings the average down, then the grade will be 50% first quarter and 50% second quarter.  For state tests (EOCs and CTE), the tests will be taken on campus with social distancing and masks will be required.  This is a state decision, not a local WCPSS decision.  These tests will count 20% of the final grade.  If a student is unable to test for medical reasons or any other reason, please contact our testing coordinator, Ms. Vincent, to request a form to be exempt.  She will submit that to the state to make a decision.  Her email address is wvincent@wcpss.net.

     

    Registration for the January 26 PSAT  (Juniors only) will end on November 30.  Complete registration by paying the $17 fee via our online payments link from the website.  This is a final deadline.  Extra exams will not be ordered.  This is great opportunity for juniors to participate in the national merit scholarship competition.

     

    Although not included in this year’s PSAT administration, 9th and 10th grade students can do official PSAT practice tests on their own and get the diagnostic information that can be used to improve future performance. These tests can be found at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/practice/full-length-practice-tests.

  • Confirmed Case of COVID-19/Caso Confirmado del COVID-19

    Posted by Scott Lyons on 10/27/2020 4:45:00 PM

    Heritage High School Families and Employees,

     

    We have been notified that an individual associated with one of our athletic teams has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last on our campus October 22, 2020.

     

    We are working closely with the Wake County Public Health Division and the individual  to identify and notify anyone who may have been in close contact with the individual to provide them further instructions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines close contact as being “within 6 feet of an infected person for a total of 15 minutes or more.” 

     

    There is nothing for you to do unless you are contacted by your local health department. If you are contacted by your local health department, please respond immediately and follow their instructions.

     

    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 919-856-7044. 

     

    Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever or chills, a new cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, or a new loss of taste or smell.

     

    Following guidelines from the NC Department of Health and Human Services and WCPSS, the person with COVID-19 will not return to a WCPSS facility until they have met the requirements outlined on the Returning To School After Diagnosis, Exposure, or Illness website.

    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. In the event others need to be notified of a suspected or positive case of COVID-19, local health officials will notify them and provide them further instructions. Do not notify colleagues, students or families of positive cases. To protect individual privacy, notifications will not identify anyone by name or contain information that could be used to identify them.

    School Cleaning

    We will have areas that may have been exposed to the virus 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.

    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 complying with the 3 Ws: 

    Wear a cloth mask over your nose and mouth
    Wait 6 feet apart. Avoid close contact
    Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer
    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 Information about COVID-19

    For more information about COVID-19 (Coronavirus), please visit these websites:

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
    NC Department of Health and Human Services
    Wake County Public Health Division 
    Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.

    Hemos sido notificados que una persona asociada con uno de nuestros equipos de deportes ha tenido una prueba positiva del COVID-19. Esta persona estuvo en nuestro recinto escolar por última vez el 22 de octubre. 

     

    Estamos trabajando en estrecha colaboración con la División de Salud Pública del Condado Wake y con el individuo para identificar y notificar a cualquier persona que pudo haber estado en estrecho contacto con el individuo para proporcionarle más instrucciones. Los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) definen el contacto cercano como estar a una distancia de 6 pies de una persona infectada por un total de 15 minutos o más.   

     

    Usted no tiene que hacer nada a menos que su departamento de salud local se comunique con usted. Si su departamento de salud local se comunica con usted, responda inmediatamente y siga las instrucciones que le den.

     

    Si a usted le preocupa haber estado expuesto y está experimentando síntomas del COVID-19, puede hacerse la prueba en uno de los lugares de prueba gratuitos en todo el condado Wake. Además, usted puede consultar con su proveedor de atención médica o llamar a la línea telefónica COVID Hotline del Condado Wake al 919-856-7044.

     

    Los síntomas del COVID-19 incluyen fiebre o escalofríos, una nueva tos, falta de aire o dificultad para respirar, o una nueva pérdida del gusto o del olfato.

     

    De conformidad con las pautas del Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos de Carolina del Norte y WCPSS, la persona con COVID-19 no regresará a ninguna instalación de WCPSS hasta que haya cumplido con los requisitos descritos en el sitio web Regreso a la escuela después de un diagnóstico, exposición o enfermedad.

    Leyes de privacidad

    Si bien entendemos las preocupaciones de las familias y los empleados, la ley estatal y federal prohíbe 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. En caso de que otras personas necesiten ser notificadas de un caso sospechoso o positivo del COVID-19, los funcionarios de salud locales les notificarán y les darán más instrucciones. Por lo tanto, no notifique a colegas, estudiantes o familias de casos positivos. Para proteger la privacidad individual, las notificaciones no identificarán a nadie por su nombre ni contendrán información que pueda usarse para identificarlos.

    Servicio de limpieza en la escuela

    Limpiaremos a fondo las áreas que pueden haber estado expuestas al virus, de acuerdo con las directrices del Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos (NCDHHS) de 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.

    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 cumplir con las 3 W: 

    Ponerse (Wear) un protector facial de tela sobre su nariz y boca.
    Esperar (Wait) a una distancia de 6 pies. Evite el contacto cercano
    Lavarse (Wash) las manos o usar desinfectante para manos.
    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.

    Información adicional sobre el COVID-19

    Para obtener más información sobre el COVID-19 (Coronavirus), visite los siguientes sitios web:

    Our yearbook staff is seeking the help from students and parents this year for building a yearbook product that is inclusive and diverse.  In order to capture all the wonderful things taking place with students in and outside the classroom, you are encouraged to upload photos using the link:  https://images.jostens.com/415464927. You can also begin purchasing a yearbook at Jostens.com

    If your teen is interested in speaking to a military recruiter (any branch) on October 28 at 12:30 pm, please email dbeaster@wcpss.net for Google Meet codes

     

    From the PTSA corner: 

    Class of 2021:  Celebrate your senior with a commemorative brick. All bricks are installed in the HHS back courtyard. Help the PTSA, beautify the school, and leave a legacy. It’s a win-win-win!  Visit https://www.heritagehighschoolptsa.com/legacybricks.html to place your order.
