Vending machines have been installed on campus. If there are any issues regarding those machines we ask that scholars contact the vendor. The school has no claim to these and no way to access or maintain. That number is 602-278-5330.

The vending machines are only available for use during our lunch periods. Scholars are not to be out at the machines at any other point during the school day.

*Remember to place your orders 24 hours in advance.

*Make sure that you finish the checkout process completely. It is very easy to accidentally leave items in your cart. After you complete your check out, you will get an email confirmation.

*In the event that you order lunch ahead of time and your scholar is absent, please contact Emily Asanovich at easanovich@heritageacademyaz.com no later than 8:00 AM that day. If no communication is made regarding what to do with that lunch, it will be donated to someone in need.

*Scholars who will be picking up the lunches need to use the name that is on the account.

There will be an informational meeting for high school scholars and their parents who are interested in going on the France/Spain trip over Spring Break.  It will be held in room 320 on Tuesday, August 21st at 6:00 PM.  Please go to this link to register for the meeting.

Come out to our Scooptacular ice cream night on Wednesday, August 22 from 4-7 PM.  Come beat the heat and support the PTO as you get ice cream scooped by some of your favorite Heritage teachers and staff.
