Distance Learning Schedules

Dear Heilicher Parents, 

We look forward to seeing you "back" at Heilicher when school resumes on Monday, November 30! A reminder that all grades will be on distance learning from November 30 - December 18

Please see the NEW Distance Learning schedules for each grade level. The attachment is a single spreadsheet with tabs along the bottom for each grade. Note that these are "live" documents and will be updated as schedules adjust. Therefore, we encourage you to check your children's Distance Learning Week schedules daily for any changes. 

Please note that most of the classes do not have Zoom links embedded, with the exception of school-wide programs. The class- or grade-specific Zoom links will be made available to parents via Seesaw for grades K-2. For grades 3-8, your child should receive Zoom invites via Google calendar invites from their teachers so that the appointments appear on their personal Google calendars. 

Happy Thanksgiving!
Lifetouch Pictures

Due to COVID, Lifetouch has let us know that they will not be doing school pictures until at least January 2021. We will be communicating about the Lifetouch makeup picture day as soon as we are able to reschedule. 

Thank you for understanding. 
Share your Heilicher "Why" ...

The Admissions Department needs your help! Future Heilicher parents want to hear YOUR story. Why did you choose Heilicher? What do your kids like most about school? What can you share about the Heilicher community?

In addition to our virtual tour, we are hoping to create a short video of parent testimonials. Please send your 1-2 minute video testimonial (smart phones are perfect) to Louise Schoenberger, Admissions Director, by
Monday, November 30.  
NEW! Heilicher Video for Grandparents

Thank you for joining us for our Grandparent Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday. It was wonderful to see everyone's faces via Zoom, and we look forward to being together, in-person, again soon.

Attached, please find a link to a special video that we showed at Kabbalat Shabbat highlighting daily life at Heilicher during this unusual year. Our students are still learning, still growing, and most importantly, still SMILING! 

Would you like any grandparents added to our email or mailing lists? Please send their information to Rebecca Skelton at rskelton@hmjds.org
