JOIN US FOR A VIRTUAL YOM DOR L'DOR

While we cannot yet gather in-person for our Yom Dor l'Dor/Grandparents and Special Persons programs, we look forward to building our community virtually through a special, grandparents "Zoom" assembly.

The online assembly will be on:

Thursday, March 25, 2021

You will have the opportunity to hear what makes Heilicher special to our students, and to build our extended school community through an online "conversation" about what makes Passover meaningful to all of us! We also look forward to honoring our grandparents through a special blessing.

Cleaning for Pesach? Is the warm weather putting you in the mood for spring cleaning? We are looking to collect new (in package) games, toys, puzzles, etc. for the birthday closet at PRISM - a food shelf in Golden Valley. Please have your child bring donations directly to their classroom by Wednesday, March 17.

STEP and PRISM are also seeking Kosher for Pesach food donations. Please bring items to school by Wednesday, March 17, and we'll get it to STEP or PRISM in time for Pesach.

You do not have to quarantine after domestic travel but mandatory testing and quarantine are required for international travel.
