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, senior, is a Marvel fanatic and hardworking leader. Ramirez leads Key Club and French Honors Society with a hope to inspire thinking globally and acting with kindness. She also runs le Congrès de la Culture Français en Floride’s (CCFF) social media accounts and is in charge of international publication Pressing the Future. Her passion for creativity continues through her filmmaking ventures such as “The Adventures of Mister Perfect and Friends,” the charity film with all proceeds going to Project Alive. Ramirez is excited for the upcoming year of The Patriot Post and is honored to lead the print publication to new heights with her wonderful staff.
