All parents who have email addresses on file with the school have been sent their username and password either at the beginning of the school year or when they enrolled their child(ren) during the year. Upper classmen may also have their own username and password which allows them access to their class pages, grades, and assignments.
(Please note that these usernames and passwords will roll over into the new year if you are continuing with the school.)
If you have forgotten your username or password, once you click on the Gradelink Portal button below, please click the “Forgot Password” link. You will need to use the email address that the school has on file. If you are still unable to access the portal, please see our Gradelink Help page or contact the school.

Parent & Student Resources
The HOS Scrip Program
The Shop With Scrip program offers plastic as well as instant electronic gift cards (over 720 available) from vendors where you already frequent on a regular basis – groceries, gasonline, restaurants, hotels, and even online stores as well, such as Amazon. The cards are sold to the school at a discount, and the school turns around and sells those same cards to you at face value. The school retains the difference, typically ranging from 2.5% – 18% or more, to use towards much needed supplies and programs. During monthly and seasonal specials, vendors offer higher rebates, which can mean even greater rewards for the school! In our first year alone, Heritage Oak was able to raise approximately $20,000. Imagine the potential and what it could mean for students, teachers, and our educational programs!
Can you help HOS out by participating in this program? Order forms are available in the church office, the HOS school office, or you can contact Kim Garrett at 661.496.3605 for Scrip Orders and Amy Bruhl at 661.972.1060 for Scrip Training and On-hand Scrip Stock or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for considering involvement in this program to continue quality classical Christian Education in the Tehachapi region.
STUDENT/TEACHER RELATIONSHIP POLICY
a. Staff members should always conduct themselves in a professional manner in keeping with that of an adult-mentor role models before the students (Titus 2:7,8). Relationships between staff-and-staff members as well as between staff members and students should avoid even the appearance of impropriety (I Peter 2:12).
b. Staff members are to be careful that any physical contacts and verbal interchanges with each other and with students avoid the appearance of evil.
c. Flirtation, sexual innuendoes, casual disrespect toward gender or authority, excessive familiarity, etc. are the kinds of unprofessional and inappropriate behavior that will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
d. If it is necessary that a male staff member spend time alone with a female staff member, it should be arranged that they are easily visible to the public (e.g. – classroom door open). The same applies to a teacher and a student.
e. Staff members should not travel alone in a car with one student, nor should a female and a male staff member travel together alone in the same vehicle.
f. On any school-sponsored trip lasting overnight and involving students of both genders, the spouses of chaperones should accompany their spouses. Single staff members may be included on such trips only with the approval of the Head of School.
