General Information
​School Hours
Our school day is 9:00 am - 3:30 pm (Kindergarten AM is 9:00 am - 11:50 am, Kindergarten PM is 12:40 pm - 3:30 pm). First bell rings at 8:55 am. Second bell rings at 9:00 am. Students who arrive after the second bell must enter through the main doors and pick up a late slip.

 
Before School
Unless your child is participating in a program before school or having breakfast in the cafeteria (breakfast starts at 8:30 am), your child should arrive at school after 8:45 am. Adult supervision is provided at that time. Playground use is not permitted before school.

 
After School
Please be on time to pick up your children. Outside supervision ends at 3:45 pm. Children may not play on the playground after school unless supervised by parents.

 
Attendance
When your child is sick or late, you are required to call the attendance line, 720-554-3595. This is a 24-hour call line.

 
Regular, on-time attendance is an essential factor in providing an excellent educational experience. Missing several days of school and being late even a few minutes disrupts the learning momentum for students. We depend on parents to minimize your child's absences by keeping them home only when they are sick, getting them to school on time, taking them to appointments outside of the school day, and traveling out-of-town when school is not in session. We hope to have each child present in school every day and on time.

 
Extended Absence
If you know in advance that your child will be absent for more than a day, you will need to fill out a Notification of Planned Absence form (located in the main office). Please note that vacation days are unexcused absences and makeup work will not be prepared prior to a student's absence.

 
Parents and Visitors
To ensure safety, all doors at Heritage are locked. All parents and visitors must enter through the main doors, sign in and wear a visitor tag, before, during and after our school day.

 
If you need to help your child at the end of the day or you have an after-school appointment set with a teacher, please enter through the main doors, sign in and put on a visitor tag a few minutes before dismissal. After the bell rings, walk to your child's classroom.

Having Lunch With Your Child
You are welcome to have lunch with your child during his or her lunch time.

 
Dress Code
We expect students to dress in a way that helps them focus on learning and feel comfortable in the classroom. Please follow​ these guidelines:
  1. Regular shorts and tops are recommended. T-shirts must be worn under muscle shirts, especially those with large openings. Shoulder straps must be two fingers wide. Spaghetti strap tops or dresses need to be worn with a shirt underneath. Shirts need to cover the entire stomach and back.
  2. Shorts need to cover the thighs. Short shorts and short skirts are not acceptable.
  3. Shirts with advertisements for products not used by children and inappropriate language are not acceptable.
  4. Tennis shoes are required to participate in PE and to play on playground equipment.
  5. If a child dresses inappropriately, he or she will be asked to change into proper clothing.
Pets
Please do not bring pets to school. Many children are afraid of or allergic to animals.
