Heritage Academy Letter from the Staff
March 18, 2020

March 18, 2020

Good Morning Heritage Academy Families,

What a week we have had!  We appreciate your flexibility and understanding as information has changed regarding COVID-19 and recommendations for schools, gatherings and communities.

As information continues to change, we want to remind you that we are in regular communication with the Idaho State Department of Education (SDE), US Department of Education: Home, and South Central Public Health District.  We are also referring to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to base our planning to respond to the spread of COVID-19 on the most recent tracking of the disease and the latest science that has been reported on the disease.

As of today, Wednesday March 18th, we have the following information to share:

      1. We are planning for two different options beginning Monday March 30th:
        • Return from spring break with a normal school schedule.  (We hope this is the case!).
        • Extended school closure (if recommended by state or federal authorities).  In the case of an extended school closure, we have planned to deliver breakfast, lunch, food pantry backpacks, chromebooks and/or hard copy homework packets to your home.  Teachers will be in contact with you regarding your family’s needs.  Heritage and Northside Bus are working together to prepare for service beginning March 30th and extended through any recommended closure.
      2. We encourage you to carefully consider current recommendations regarding travel and activity within our community and outside of the Magic Valley.  If we work together, we hope we can stop the spread of Coronavirus and protect our most vulnerable citizens.
      3. Please speak with your child(ren) about preventive measures such as thorough hand washing, covering the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and avoiding gatherings within the community.
      4. We know that the current recommendations change spring break plans.  This may be difficult for your child(ren) to understand.  We encourage you to reach out to your child(ren)’s teacher for fun and educational ideas for spring break activities.
      5. We also know that the threat of contagious illnesses can be frightening and stressful.  Anxiety about work, school and restrictions on activities are also normal during this time period.  We encourage you to contact Dr. Ivie (in addition to being our superintendent, she is a trained counselor), Mrs. Sauer (also a trained counselor) or Mrs. Carpenter (our Social Emotional Learning Coordinator) if you or your family are experiencing increased anxiety or stress.  All three of us can be reached via Remind or school email.  We are happy to listen, provide help and/or connect you with community resources.

As always, feel free to contact your child(ren)’s teacher(s) or Dr. Ivie with questions or concerns.

We hope you have a happy and healthy spring break!

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.
