Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you for your continued support.

Unfortunately, we are not able to have an Open House. Instead, we are currently planning a Virtual Open House. Our Virtual Open House will be shared with you through email, the Gomez Heritage website, and Facebook. We hope to have everything completed by mid October.

Parent-Teacher Conferences are being held online on TEAMS. You will access TEAMS through your student's account. See below for information regarding how conferences will be conducted.

Unfortunately, the tradition of having a Fall Harvest Parade will be placed on hold until next year. Information regarding students wearing costumes to school is reviewed below. More information will be shared during Parent-Teacher Conferences. Your understanding regarding our safety measures is appreciated.

Let us know if there is anything we can do to help support you.
