Cold weather is coming. With the weather changes and flu season, it is important to remember a few safety tips.

  1. Follow the local Governor's order including limiting group gatherings and wearing a mask in public places, including the school. Parents are responsible to send their child with a mask each day.
  2. Families need to conduct a wellness check daily before sending students to school. Students who are feeling ill or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, chills or muscle aches, sore throat, new loss of smell/taste, nausea/or vomiting, congestion / runny nose, fatigue, or diarrhea should NOT attend school. Students who show symptoms at school will be quarantined at school until parents can pick them up. In many cases students who show symptoms at school are required to quarantine for 10 days or until a negative test can be provided to the school. 
  3. There will be an increase in traffic due to more cars dropping off and picking up children. Please slow down and follow the parking lot signs.
  4. Please help your children remember to bring a warm coat and shoes appropriate for the weather.
  5. Watch for the orange flags around the school. The orange flag represents an inside morning. Students are allowed to come into the school building at 7:45. Students should not arrive at school any earlier than 7:40 except to eat breakfast (7:30).  For more information about cold weather policies, snow days, and inside days Click Here.

Heartland Elementary Reopening Plan 20-21 Updated 1/08/21

Check out the JSD's Back to School Safety Plan (Espanol)

8:00 First Bell - 2:35 Last Bell – Updated
In previous years in order to accommodate a short day one Monday a month for professional development, our regular school times were increased. This year Heartland will no longer be doing short days on Monday. We are grateful to the community for allowing us to use that valuable time to increase our capacity. This year we will be returning to regular school hours.

FRIDAY: 10:30-1:25 in-person attendance will ONLY be available by invitation from the teacher. All students will have some work this day, but it may be online or paper homework to complete. All teachers will have an online office time to communicate with parents from 10:00-10:30. Teachers will be in collaborative meetings and preparing materials for the rest of the day. Students will have the opportunity to buy breakfast and/or lunch to-go meals from 12:30-1:25 each Friday. If they choose both meals, they will be charged for both meals at their regular rate (free or reduced prices will be applied for those who qualify).


Our number one priority as we return to school next week is the safety and wellbeing of each students and staff member at Heartland. Please note several important changes to our school procedures this year to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

  • Parents and students will be required to wear face masks while on school property and in the building
  • Students should arrive no earlier than 7:30
  • Parents are encouraged to send their students with water bottles to reduce the use of drinking fountains
  • If students are bringing a home lunch, parents are encouraged to use disposable products
  • Some of our grade level door assignments have changed. Look for updated signs and ground markings for lining up before school
  • Parents will not be allowed into the building past the main office or foyer area
  • Please make sure on Skyward that you have updated all your contact information
  • Please complete a student health check each day before sending your student to school. This includes checking for a fever (or warm/red skin). If students are sick, please keep them home. Students who show symptoms at school will be quarantined at school and parents will be called to pick them up
  • Emails for staff members can be found here.
