RE:                    2021 8th Grade Promotion/Trip    

As you know, this school year we have had to cancel many of our usual student activities. On April 19th, the issues of 8th grade promotion and 8th grade class trip were discussed with the Heritage Board of Education.  I am pleased to inform you that the Board of Education voted to allow both 8th grade activities to move forward following CDC/IDPH guidance and regulations.  We have begun plans, for both activities, knowing that either could be cancelled at any time due to increases in cases and/or changes in guidelines.   

At this time, we have set the following dates and times for the 8th grade in-person promotion ceremony and class trip.  As in the past, students must be academically eligible to attend these activities.  Rules of eligibility can be found in our student handbook and will be strictly followed.  

8th Grade Promotion Ceremony:

Date:  May 17, 2021

Time:  6:30 p.m.

Location:  Heritage High School, Broadlands, IL

**Students will be provided 6 tickets per student for guests.  Only those with a ticket will be admitted and all CDC mask and self-check requirements will be followed.  

8th Grade Class Trip:

Date:    Tuesday, May 18, 2021

                                                                    Time:   TBD

** More information will be provided to students closer to date of trip.  

 (Eligible students may opt not to participate in either activity.)  

Last day of 8th grade student attendance: 

May 14, 2021- students who are ineligible to participate in activities

May 17, 2021 – students who are eligible and choose to participate in ceremony and/or class trip
