From The Principal:

Dear Hornet families,

I wanted to take a moment to pass along a couple of  important  items to you in regard to Heritage Junior High.  

With the mandated school closings, I will be temporarily be suspending the weekly Heritage newsletter.  Any information that needs to be shared will come directly from the district or will be sent to you from me using SchoolMessenger, which is how the newsletter comes to you weekly.  

Mrs. Kamyszek, our Media Office Clerk, and Mrs. Jackowicz, our Administrative Assistant, have both worked on PowerSchool for students. If you are having difficulty (for example - can't get in to PowerSchool or need assistance with login/passcodes), they can be emailed with questions at:  or

Individual class and teacher questions should go directly to the teacher through their email addresses which can be accessed through Schoology and/or PowerSchool.  

9th grade students who may have been failing Quarter 3 at the time of the closings and/or Semester II should be receiving an email from their counselor in regard to some credit recovery options during this time.  

The scheduling process for 2020-2021 is currently “on hold.”  Our students received their scheduling sheets before the mandated closure.  Please complete them and wait until we give additional information/direction about scheduling for next school year.

In addition...To the parents of incoming 7th Grade students, please see below for important information regarding curriculum night and scheduling.
