Congratulations to the Heritage Class of 2022!

Principal's Message

Good afternoon, Heritage PRIDE Family,


I hope this Update finds you and those you care about safe and well.


We had a wonderful time celebrating the Class of 2022! Even though the weather didn't cooperate, we were still able to send off this amazing class in style! We will miss them, and I know their futures are bright!


As we wrap up the 2021-22 school year, our focus shifts to the summer and perparing for the next school year with all of the excitement that brings!


Summer Credit Recovery Update

Invitations for Summer Extension Credit Recovery (SECR) were sent out this afternoon sent out by Fernando.Uribarri@lcps.org, the SECR Principal. If you received a previous email about SECR but did not get an invitation today, you may assume your student passed their class and doesn’t need SECR. If you have any questions please email Mr. Uribarri.

Special Permission Reminders

We have quite a few students here on Special Permission, so I wanted to include the information about the Special Permission windows for the upcoming school year. Just a reminder, students do have to apply for Special Permission each year.


From the LCPS Special Permission site: "The special permission request window for the 22-23 school year opens to the public on April 1 (at 10:00 am) and closes on June 30. Employees may apply beginning March 1 (at 10:00 am) if applying to bring their child to their own school or an elementary school in their employment cluster. You will receive a decision on your special permission request within 30 days."
