Heritage Academy Letter from the Staff
April 6, 2020

April 6, 2020

Good Evening Heritage Academy Families,

Congratulations on completing week one of our virtual Heritage Academy!  All of our staff members appreciate your understanding, patience and flexibility as we work together to transition to a new way of living.  We hope you are finding ways to enjoy more time with your family and cope with social distancing.  We also hope all of you are staying healthy!

As of today, Monday April 6th, we have the following information to share:

    1. This afternoon, the Idaho State Board of Education voted to continue the statewide “soft closure” for all Idaho schools through the rest of this school year.  What this means:
      • School buildings will be closed for the remainder of the year.  The SBOE may develop criteria that allow individual schools to open if health considerations improve.  The criteria will be discussed in upcoming State Board of Education meetings (those are being held every Monday).
      • During the building closure we will deliver breakfast, lunch, food pantry backpacks, Chromebooks and/or hard copy homework packets to your home.  Teachers will continue to be in contact with you regarding your family’s needs.
    2. Attendance is critical!  Attendance at virtual school is just as important as attendance in our building.  Our teachers are doing an amazing job creating online opportunities and work that will help your child(ren) meet grade-level standards.  In order to earn middle school credits and/or pass the current grade level, your child(ren) must attend school and complete work.
      • The State requires children under the age of 16 to attend school and each school is required to take attendance during the extended building closure.  Your child(ren)’s teacher(s) will let you know how he/she is measuring attendance.  If you are having trouble connecting with teachers, please feel free to email or send a Remind message to any staff member and we will help you connect.
    3. Grades are important! Grades provide you and your child with feedback about how well he/she understands the material.  Please make sure your child is completing all assigned work.  His/her teacher will provide grades, but more importantly, the work will allow our teachers to design instruction that helps your child learn, grow and progress to the next grade-level or class.


We miss you!  We love being able to connect online, but we really love seeing all of you at the school.  That’s true for both our students and their parents/guardians.  If there is anything we can do to help you during this unusual time in our community, please let us know.

Year Founded



From Aspiration to Reality


Heritage Academy makes learning fun! 

Students at Heritage participate in enrichment clusters that allow them to create real-world products and services based on their interests.  Imagine your child working with other students to write and produce a musical or design and publish a book.

Students at Heritage have used the skills and knowledge they acquire in class to achieve these things and more!  Our students achieve academic success and experience the fun and fulfillment of using what they have learned to achieve their dreams.
