The Heritage High School Media Center Mission Statement:
The Heritage High School Media Center will create a positive, student-centered learning experience that serves to support classroom/teacher curriculum, share, motivate, and support student achievement and accomplishments, and prepare students for real world critical thinking and work skills while promoting literacy in all students.
The Media Center is for students to utilize that are enrolled at Heritage High School and that are attending classes on campus during the school day. We offer our students avariety of services and access to many resources for their academic success.
Printing- Students have access to one black and white printer. Students may print school-related documents, except photographs, free of charge. All other printing will incur a fee of .10$ per page.
Computers- Students may access computers for homework, classwork, research, and study purposes ONLY any time throughout the day, with a pass from the classroom teacher. Students will be permitted to use the computers for 30 minutes if others are waiitng, and only during one class period throughout the day, plus before school and/or during lunch.
Research- Students have access to several research resources. Students must access these resources through their Launchpad both on and off campus.
Volunteer Hours- Students interested in volunteering in the Media Center may do so during their lunch, before school, or after school as needed. There is a sign-in sheet at the front desk. Please clear with Mrs. Cote before signing in.
Lunch- Students who wish to purchase lunch in the cafeteria and bring their lunch to the Media center must obtain a special pass from either Mrs. Cote or Ms. Burgos or they will not be allowed to leave the cafeteria/courtyard dining areas. Passes are given on a first come/first serve basis and must be checked back in at the end of each quarter.

Dual Enrollment Textbooks
Attention all EFSC Students!
The Media Center will distribute your EFSC textbooks using your course syllabus. Students should visit their first class meeting, acquire the syllabus, and confirm the materials that are required and WILL BE USED for the class. Students then turn in copies of the syllabus to retrieve their textbooks from the Media Center at the Heritage High School campus. In order to avoid ordering unnecessary materials, incorrect textbooks, and materials not covered by district policy, it is necessary for the students to use the syllabus for textbook retrieval. Students must visit the Media Center no later than 2:30pm daily to pick up their books. Please keep in mind that students are responsible for purchasing any consumables such as course outlines and manuals, lab coats, goggles, etc. and any materials/books listed as "recommended". Arrangements will be made for summer courses during May!
All students receive updates and important information using the REMIND app. It is mandatory for all EFSC students to have this app. Please follow the link below to get this free app and register using our class code dadch2.
