Good afternoon, Heritage Middle School Students and Families,
It’s Friday, August 18, 2017, and I hope this message finds you ready to enjoy a wonderful weekend--with plenty of rest and relaxation. On behalf of the entire Heritage MS team, I want to thank you for helping us with such a great start to the school year. We had a wonderful start on Thursday and Friday not only because our teachers created outstanding plans, but also because you set the stage for success on the homefront! Thank you for your support.
As you may know, we are implementing some new norms and rules for the 2017-2018 school year, and I wanted to provide a little more information about them.
The administrators, teachers and staff have been talking to students about these new rules and procedures from the first day, but we need your help on the home front--to reinforce and to remind. Thank you in advance for helping us with these rules!
One final piece of information about something very special happening on Monday. A solar eclipse is supposed to happen on Monday 8/21 between 1:04-3:50pm, so it will affect our students when they leave for the day. Please make sure your student remains safe and understands the associated risks of inappropriately viewing the eclipse. According to NASA’s eclipse website, special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers, must be used when looking directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, transmit too much sunlight and are not safe for direct viewing. Please help us by sharing this information with your child.
We’re looking forward to many sunny days ahead for every Heritage Middle School Husky! Thank you again for a great start to the school year.
