Reminders from Previous Weekly Messages:  

Communication:  Some of our teachers are transitioning to a new type of communication tool called Talking Points.  The initial message that you receive will provide you information on Talking Points.  I just wanted to give you notice of this new tool.  

Remote Learning Days:  Sept. 29 and 30 are scheduled as remote learning days for students.  All classes will have asynchronous lessons on those dates, and attendance will be determined by the submission of assignments.  Our track out begins the following day on Oct. 1 and runs through Oct. 16. 

Student Services Needs Assessment:   Our Student Services Team is available to provide resources and to assist with needs of our families.  Please complete the following survey to let them know of your needs at this time:  Needs Assessment Survey 

Take Care,

Jo Ellen Newhouse, Heritage Middle School Principal
