Invoices will be emailed on August 12th. All school fees will be paid via our payment system My School Bucks. You will be able to pay PTO dues and buy yearbooks using the shopping cart of My School Bucks at that time as well.
Hats – No hats will be allowed on campus this year except for the Heritage uniform hat, which can be purchased at the links below and picked up in the Athletic Directors office. Scholars will be asked to remove their hats while in the building.
This year our Citizenship curriculum is Moral Lessons from Our American Heritage. Over the last two years, many young people have struggled with mental health challenges. While we are not a medical agency, these mental challenges have negatively affected the learning mindset and academic performance of many of our youth at school. We want to set every youth up for success this year, so we will be piloting a program teaching about mental wellness called MECKA. Please check out the following letter describing the program and attend an informational meeting.
Hair – “Hair should not distract from the learning environment. It must be a natural color and should not cover the eyes. Boys’ hair length should be above the collar and not touching the ears. Man buns are not allowed. Any sideburns are to be no lower than the ear lobe. Boys are to be clean-shaven. Girls’ hair can be any length, but must not be extreme in style.” Scholars with extreme or inappropriate hairstyles will be sent home.
Uniform – All scholars are expected to be in full uniform every day at school. Scholars out of uniform will be required to change and may possibly be sent home.
Piercings – The handbook only allows for one piercing on the ears of girls. All other piercings should be removed when a scholar attends school. Scholars will be asked to remove piercings and may pick them up from the principal at the end of the day.
