Praying all Patriot families stayed safe through the storm. For students on tracks 1, 3 and 4, your make up days will be Saturday, November 16 and Saturday, December 7.  On Saturday school we will serve breakfast but will NOT serve lunch.  School begins at the normal time and we will begin dismissal at 11:50 AM. 


HMS Progress Report Available


I encourage you to take a look at the Heritage Middle Progress Report using this link. This report, along with a progress report for all WCPSS schools, is available on the WCPSS website.  At HMS, we are very proud of the learning environment we have created that supports the development of the whole child as well as encourages our teachers to be creative in their instructional approaches used for every student each day!

Our Fall Athletic teams look forward to beginning their seasons in less than 2 weeks. Please visit the HMS Athletics website for a full calendar of events and plan to come out to support Patriot Athletics! I would also encourage you to consider following HMS Athletics on Twitter @HMSAthletics1.


Carpool Safety Reminder


Please be aware that we have many students walking to school in the mornings and home from school in the afternoons. Many cross Rogers Road.  I ask each of you to drive slowly and be highly alert for students and help us ensure the safety of all our students!  Thanks so much.
