Floods sweep through the AHS campus

in Features/Multimedia by

It was a dark and stormy day for Heritage as rain poured and water flooded the pathways and fields. Although it may still be dry season in South Florida, the past few days have featured heavy downpours and strong wind gusts. Temperatures have also plummeted into the high 60s and low 70s, a sharp contrast from the scorching temperatures from last week. 

The culprit behind the sudden storms is an Atlantic cold front that began sweeping through Florida late Sunday and has continued to push inland. Meteorologists predict that the front will start moving north of Broward Wednesday night.

The school announced Wednesday night that classes would be held virtually Thursday, April 12 for grades 4-12. 

To access their online class, students will login to Schoology and select their course at the scheduled time. Each teacher will have posted a virtual link to a google meet.
