Heritage Elementary School

Tampa, FL 33647

Mascot: Bobcat
Colors: Navy Blue, Gold & White
Uniforms: Mandatory

Heritage Elementary opened in August 2003. Our student population continues to grow as our community grows. Our Heritage Family provides our students with the knowledge and support to reach academic success. School colors are blue and gold and the mascot is a Florida Bobcat.  We are a "B" school. 

School begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 2:15 p.m. for all students, kindergarten through fifth grade.  Per Hillsborough Conty Policy, students must be in his/her assigned seat when the tardy bell rings at 8:00 a.m. to be counted as present and on time.  For registration information concerning our Early Bird Childcare program you may contact HOST at 740-4580 ext. 247. If your child is tardy, the student must come to the office, accompanied by a parent, for a tardy pass before going to class.


Florida law requires that a student be in attendance every school day except for personal illness. Parents are required to explain the cause of absence or tardiness by calling the attendance line extension by 9:00 a.m. at 740-4580 ext. 500. State your child’s name, teacher’s name, reason and the anticipated return date.
Upon their return to school, all students who have been absent must have a note explaining their absence. A letter will be sent home after five unexcused absences. Ten or more days of unexcused absences are considered excessive and would warrant a referral made to the school social worker for assistance.

Heritage Vision:
Heritage Elementary School will help everyone reach individual talents and goals every day.

Heritage Mission:
Through respect and high expectations, our teamwork and diversity will create lifetime learners.
