🚙 Hi Heritage Families,

During spring dismissal time, it is not unusual for us to have inclement weather. So it’s really important for us all to work together as a team so that we can accomplish dismissal is as safe, efficient and orderly manner. We are asking all families to please read this note and then to accomplish a few things while we to tweak a few things here at school.


Our biggest challenge is cancellation of Neighborhood Pickup because that moves about 100 more kids into Car Rider Pickup.


We will cancel Neighborhood Pickup only for lightening, thunder, hail, or torrential rain. We will try to make a decision by 3:15, earlier is possible. (Last Friday, it didn’t start thundering until 3:15.) Cancelation will be sent by email and posted on the Heritage Elementary Facebook Page.


Families we need your help with:


1. Please come up with a back-up plan so your children and their teachers know what to do when Neighborhood is canceled.


2. Our dismissal system operates off of a number system. Every family has been given two visor tags and a backpack tag for each child. We key in the number on your car visor tag that sends a message especially to your children’s classrooms telling them you are in the parking lot. We really need you to have the number tag hanging from your visor/mirror. The system will not accept names.


3. Please make sure the number tag is also on your children’s back packs. By the end of the day, children are tired/inattentive and our littles don’t know big numbers. Having the visual reference of a yellow numbered tag is essential for staff handling dismissal to see.


4. If your back-up plan is for your children to ride home with a neighbor/carpool, please make sure the neighbor/carpool has a tag with your children’s number on it.


You’re doing a great job:

We know the line is long. Cars are doing an amazing job pulling on to the shoulder of the road so that traffic can continue on Sorghum Mill and Broadway.

​Thank you for taking turns so both eastbound and westbound cars can enter the parking lot.

​We appreciate how slowly and carefully you are driving to keep everyone safe.


At the beginning of the year, we told you that if you lost the number/visor tags, you would need to purchase new ones. We are not going to make you do that the last 5 weeks of school. Please help us out, if you have lost yours, make a new one.


One of our favorite quotes is by Helen Keller, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” Let’s Go Team Hero!!! Let’s work together to make this dismissal safe and efficient.


Thank you sooooo much,

Cathey Bugg, Principal
