NEW Entry Sites for All IN PERSON Students

posted Jun 16, 2018, 9:12 PM by Jayme Stangier   [ updated Aug 22, 2020, 1:47 PM ]

To ensure all students stay socially distant upon entering school, each grade level will have "specific" entry points each morning.   Staff will be staged at these entrances to ensure students go through the health screening process as well as stay socially distant from others.   Reminder: students need to adhere to a 3-6 feet social distancing protocol, which includes no hand-shaking, fist bumping, hugging, sharing of materials, drinking containers, etc.).  Students will line up on "ORANGE" painted dots upon arrival to campus.    There are no exceptions to these routines and procedures.    

6th Grade Entry Point:    Back Cafeteria Doors between 10 Wing/Gym 
                                        (Montebello or Comanche are closest streets for drop off)
7th Grade Entry Point:    Main Doors to School 
                                        (Adair and Caledonia are closest streets for drop off)
8th Grade Entry Point:    20 Wing Doors   
                                        (Comanche is the closest street for drop off)

posted Aug 12, 2017, 6:44 PM by Jayme Stangier   [ updated Aug 22, 2020, 2:07 PM ]

All students will adhere to the following for entry to school daily.

Complete the Health Screening Protocols

  • Screening consists of temperature check and health questions

    • Once screened they will go directly to their 1st hour class.   Initially staff will help students to the appropriate classroom.   

  • ALL Students will line up on ORANGE dots sprayed on the ground to denote the social distancing that IS required.  

  • ALL students will wear masks upon arrival to the campus and throughout the day.    

  • Staff will be strategically placed around the campus, both inside and outside to ensure social distancing and mask wearing compliance.    

  • STUDENTS will not be allowed to wander around the campus.   They must line up on the orange dots and stay socially distanced.  

  • There WILL BE NO handshaking, fist bumping, hugging, kissing,  high-fiving, etc.

  • ALL students must line up in designated places upon arrival at school.   There will be no group mingling allowed.   

  • The Health Screening team will begin screening at 8:10AM.   This will stagger the number of students entering the building to avoid close contact.   

  • Any student who registers 100.4 and higher will be placed in the isolation rooms and parents will be called to pick your child up.  (Isolation rooms are located in the office area)

  • Students arriving on the bus will go to their designated grade entry doors to be screened

  • Any student that arrives after 8:30AM will need to come through the front doors to be screened before going to class.   

NOTE: As the school year begins we recognize that this process may take some time to complete. Please note we will screen all students no matter how long it takes.

If your child is sick, please keep home from school.

BE CAUTIOUS-Adair IS A One Way street

posted Nov 13, 2015, 9:23 AM by Edward Crowell   [ updated Jun 16, 2018, 8:00 PM by Jayme Stangier ]

Adair, the street DIRECTLY in front of Heaton is “officially” a ONE WAY Street.  You can ONLY access Adair from Caledonia.   Signs have been posted and cross-walks are marked.  “Cross-Walk” has been installed for student safety at Adair and Caledonia AND Comanche and Adair.   There is a "Right-Turn Only” at the corner of Adair and Comanche to help traffic flow especially after school.   We encourage families to find a designated "pick-up" point after school on either Montebello, Caledonia or on the eastern end of Comanche.   Traffic become too congested if trying to use the area directly in front of the school. The bus loop directly in front of the school is for busses only.   

As a reminder in regards to safety, DO NOT stop in the street to allow students to enter or exit the vehicle.  Also, please note the “no parking” zones that are marked with signs and paint.  All parking violation will be addressed by our SRO.  Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to make students safe.  

NO Show Cell Phone Policy 2020-2021

posted Jul 22, 2015, 3:50 PM by Joseph Misiaszek   [ updated Aug 22, 2020, 1:58 PM by Jayme Stangier ]

Cell Phones will be out of sight and kept away during the school day.  This year, even though students will be carrying their backpacks, they will not be allowed to use their phones in school.   Phones need to be put away and turned off.   

Students will ALWAYS have access to the phones in the office to speak with parents if an emergency arises.   

Cell phones can deter from students being on-task and engaged during the class lesson.  This year, more than ever, we need students to be focused on their classes since they are in person for such a limited time due to COVID-19.   

We take the education of our students very seriously.  They can text, tweet, play games, etc., outside of school time.   We appreciate your help and cooperation.  

The Only Way Out is Through--2020-2021 School Year Theme

posted May 28, 2015, 7:28 AM by Joseph Misiaszek   [ updated Aug 22, 2020, 2:22 PM by Jayme Stangier ]

"The Only Way Out is Through"

I’d like to begin today by welcoming everyone back to the 2020-2021 school year.   I am excited to be back celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Heaton and the start of the year.   

I am not sure if anyone realized Heaton was celebrating a birthday, but this year celebrates 60 years of service to the Pueblo community.    The first principal, Carl Wilkerson served as principal for more than a decade and when Heaton opened in 1960 it welcomed students to literally an empty auditorium, girls who were required to wear skirts, and to a world that was experiencing a variety of different social changes. 

Celebrate---I want us to focus on that word.  We have reason to celebrate.   As we begin our work to start this school year, there are a thousand reasons that we could sit and lament about the situation that surrounds us, but instead I have chosen and am asking you to choose to think about the positives that surround us.  

As we launch this year, I start with sharing our theme for the year.    Our theme this year comes from a poem by the great Robert Frost, called A Servant to Servants.    This lengthy poem is the lamenting and complaining about the work that has been placed upon the female character who narrates the poem. The female lead shares her frustration with the fact that she is a servant to her husband and also to the servants who work the land.   Essentially like sometimes we do after complaining, she gives herself a pep talk to help her cope and deal with the situation. She says,

"By good rights I ought not to have so much

Put on me, but there seems no other way.

Len says one steady pull more ought to do it.

He says the best way out is always through

And I agree to that, or in so far

As that I can see no way out but through..."

The only way out is through. That is our theme this year as it will help remind us that no matter what comes our way, we can not side step or change what is happening in our world today. There is no doubt that this year will task us, challenge us in a multitude of ways to work together-make steady pulls--so that in the end we can get through all of the changes we are experiencing.   

I want to acknowledge to you that this will be a challenging year.   It will test our limits, our strength, our resilience, and our fortitude.  It’s going to require that we do things differently, think out of the box, be creative.   

 I want to acknowledge that for some of us that there is fear and worry that will test us in ways probably not seen before.   I acknowledge that too.

But--I am asking all of you to think positively.  Look for the silver linings….drink from the glass that is half full.  We are here in this moment together -celebrating this opportunity to return to school, return to a regular schedule-working towards moving forward.   

I want all families to know that we are doing our very best to ensure your child's safety along with providing them the best education that will prepare them for high school and beyond. We will focus on what we can control because that will help us make it through because “The Only Way Out is Through”

So--with that said, let’s get stared! Welcome back to the 2020-2021 School Year!!!
