From The Principal:

Greetings Heritage Hornet families! 

While we are disappointed that that COVID-19 spikes have led to a change in our in-person learning plans, we remain committed to the health and safety of our entire district.

Our students will return to remote learning beginning Monday, November 9.  While teaching and learning will occur remotely, students will continue to follow the most recent block schedule including bell times and lunch times referenced above.

We are asking that all families choose one of the two options available for second semester (which begins January 4):  In-person/remote learning, or the UCS Virual Acadamy.

In-person/remote learning option will allow your student to transition to in-person learning when health and safety factors permit us to return to classrooms.  Parents who make this choice are committing to having their students attend school under any of the following situations:
* Fully in-person at any time
* Hybrid model (two in-person and three days remote
* Fully remote

The UCS Virtual Academy is the district's fully on-line option.  All students enrolled in the UCS Virtual Academy will remain in the virtual learning environment through the remainder of the school year.  

Regardless of which option you choose, your child will be taught by highly qualified UCS teachers with curriculum that will be parallel across the various learning environments.

As we engage in the planning process, we are asking that you inform us of your choices by 11:59 p.m. on November 15.  You can make your choice by clicking this  

A Frequently Asked Question page regarding these choices is available at this link.

Just a reminder, students will be absent if they are not logged into classes. Please call the office if your child is absent for class due to illness, appointments, etc.  Attendance will be taken every day, during every block, as if students were attending school in person.

Please take the time to view the following videos to help troubleshoot and answer any Tech questions that may come up.
