Posted by Scott Lyons on 8/6/2021 10:15:00 AM

Hello, Huskies,


As we get closer to starting the 2021-2022 school year, access important start of school information from the main page of our website: https://www.wcpss.net/HeritageHS.   Please spend some time previewing all information and taking action where needed.  Links are continuing to be added and updated.  


PowerSchool will open for students to view tentative schedules on Thursday, August 12.  Final schedules are distributed during advisory on the first day of school.  Final schedules for Virtual Academy students will be accessible in PowerSchool on the first day of school. Course correction information and instructions are included in the start of school information links.   


If you do not plan to return to Heritage High School this fall, please begin withdrawal process by calling 919-570-5600, ext. 20699. 


Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to submit parking applications now until Monday, August 9 at 2:30pm.  Seniors who submit all paperwork will be able to choose a parking spot at Senior Orientation (August 11th).  Off campus lunch forms are also available.  This requires parent/guardian permission.  Submit these forms in the main office, 7am-3pm.


All students participating in the Career and College Promise dual enrollment courses for this fall semester should have already provided a copy of their community college schedule and WCPSS Dual Enrollment form to lweaver2@wcpss.net.  Students: be sure to check your WCPSS email for any communication as there may be a conflict with our bell schedule or additional clarification may be needed.


North Carolina 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 23.   There are no extensions for this date.  Seniors are now required to have the meningococcal vaccine.  Also, for seniors a second meningococcal vaccine may be required for students by 17 years of age or entering 12th grade. Please consult with 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 main office, Monday-Friday, 7am-3pm.


Seniors may still submit Reduced Course load Applications and Midyear Graduation Applications.  Both applications are accessible on the senior page of the website.  This is an extension of the original deadline.  All requests should be submitted by August 20.


Seniors are reminded to complete the task of getting your senior portrait for the yearbook.  Go to https://local.prestigeportraits.com/nc/morrisville/951-aviation-parkway.html or call (919) 377-0026. This is a busy time for Prestige.  Continue to call if there are no appointments available.
