Students in Kindergarten and 1st grades will be able to check out 2 books and students in 2nd-5th grades will be able to check out 4 books.

Watch D.O.G.S.

Heritage Elementary is looking for WatchDOGS. If you've been a WatchDOG in the past or have never been a WatchDOG and have been wondering what WatchDOGS do during Covid 19 look no farther. WatchDOGS will be required to wear masks in the building and encouraged to wash hands frequently. You are welcome to bring a small hand sanitizer to keep with you throughout the day.

WatchDOGS will sign in with Lobby Guard in the office using your Driver's License, and we will take your temperature. After that, find Mrs. Drees or go to the Media Center to get checked in for the day. You will rotate to different parts of the building every 30 minutes. You may be asked to help with students, read to classes, or help with sanitizing in a classroom. You will be able to have lunch and recess with your students. Please feel free to bring water with you. We have a coffee pot in the library if you would like a cup.


A WatchDOGS signup will be coming out soon. Please contact Mrs. Drees if you have any questions at marsha.drees@edmondschools.net or 726-4965

Edmond Public Schools Launches Mobile App to Keep Community Informed and Involved!

Edmond Public Schools has launched an official mobile app designed to enable parents, staff, and students to stay informed and up-to-date on important issues, information, and activities underway within the school community. The free app is available for download in the Apple and Android app stores by searching for Edmond Public Schools.


The app features push notifications so that users may be notified about important events, announcements, and news in real-time such as bus delays. Users have the ability to choose which of the district’s schools they would like to follow, making their app experience personal and school-specific.


Key features include:

· Push messaging from both the district and school sites

· News

· Google Calendars

· Online grade book and attendance

· Lunch Menus

· Athletic Information

· Language Translations

The mobile app replaces the district's previous app, SchoolWay, which abruptly ceased operations last summer. The app was developed in cooperation with Intrado, provider of School Messenger solutions.
