New Online Payment System

As we announced last month, we are migrating over to using MySchoolBucks (MSB) to handle payments, receipts & invoicing for student fees, donations, PTO Dues, field trips, yearbooks, and spirit wear. Unfortunately it is taking longer than anticipated to make the transition.

While we are currently working with an implementation specialist to get the student fees side of MSB completed, our School Store is live with several items available for purchase. You can pay PTO dues or even make ECA and Non-ECA donations there (no class fee payments can be made at this time via ECA donations). Spiritwear is available for certain classes/ organizations and the Fine Arts Retreat will be available for signup and payment soon.  For more information go here.



Purchase your yearbook by September 30th to get 10% off!  Go here for more details.


Senior Pictures FAQ’s

When is Senior Picture Day?

Friday, September 25th from 9:00 AM-3:30 PM.  Every senior has been assigned a time and should have received it in the mail.  If you did not receive it, please email Senora Creno at

How Much Will Packages Cost?

To just get a basic yearbook photo, there is no cost.  There are upgraded sitting fee options to choose from with various backgrounds and multiple clothing changes starting at $10.  Two to three weeks after your photo session, you will be able to view your images for additional purchase.  To see the session options you can visit here.

What do I need to bring?

Please come dressed for success in Heritage standard clothing.  This will be your yearbook photo.  Appropriate clothing choices are slacks with a collared shirt and tie, dresses, or blouses with slacks or appropriate length skirts. Please no tops that are low-cut, off-the shoulder, or sleeveless.  You may also choose to wear your Heritage polo if you prefer.  You may bring additional clothing if you would like to upgrade your package to multiple poses and clothing changes.
