Regarding Heritage’s staff, teachers work at home. School in-person is canceled for the time being since all non-essential businesses are closed. With our online learning protocol, Upper School Principal Mrs. Elise Blum is trying to emphasize the importance of social distancing. “I think that kids should realize the reason we closed school is to limit social interactions and large group gatherings. It sort of defeats the purpose of that if they are hanging out in the mall or going to parties. Students should limit their interactions and take advantage of this time to relax, rest, read, spend time outside and be with their family,” Mrs. Blum said. 

Bella Ramirez, junior, is a Marvel fanatic and hardworking leader. You can find her panicking over deadlines for her four publications (Pressing the Future, Patriot Post, French Newspaper and WAHS) or planning presentations for Key Club most days. When she’s not working then, well, she’s always working. Beyond journalism, she pursues film through directing, producing and writing. She’s excited to present her first feature film in 2019 and its sequel in 2020.
