October 29, 2021 COVID Exposure Notice

2021-10-29T22:21:55+00:00

We were notified today that an individual at our school has tested positive for COVID-19. Due to procedures related to privacy laws, we are limited in what we can say. We urge you to also respect the privacy of our students and staff. HSHMC works with the San Diego Public Health Department to follow up with all cases and symptomatic contacts to identify all exposed persons and recommend home quarantine and testing. If you or your child are not contacted, it means that we have no evidence of direct exposure to you or your child. Our advice and practice has not changed since the beginning of the pandemic. That is, if your child is feeling ill or has a fever or symptoms of COVID-19, even if symptoms are very minor, please do not send your child to school and consider getting your ill child tested for COVID-19. Students should remain home until a return date is determined in consultation with school personnel based on test results and symptom improvement, and following all applicable state and county health guidelines. They can return immediately if they have a documented chronic illness that explains their current symptoms. Remember, symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure, can range from mild to severe, and could include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, sore throat, muscle or body aches, headache, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, and new loss of smell or taste. Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms should be tested. However, many infected people do not develop symptoms, which is why it is recommended that exposed people be tested whether they have symptoms or not. If your child is well and without any symptoms, please remind them to use their face covering, and wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. We know this information is concerning for our students and families. Ensuring the health and safety of our students, teachers, and staff members is of the utmost importance to us, and we will continue to follow all public health guidelines strictly.

Board Approved Student Covid-19 Vaccination Plan

2021-10-12T21:48:11+00:00

Board Approved Student Covid-19 Vaccination Plan After inviting and receiving public comment today and an extended discussion, our HSHMC Board of Directors unanimously voted to approve the Required Student COVID 19 Vaccination Plan. Thank you to those who took the time to speak to our board to voice your opinions. At HSHMC, we have always been committed to the safety, health and well-being of our students, their families, and our local community. It is because of this commitment that we have decided to implement a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all HSHMC students 12 years and older. By November 15, all students will be required to have their first shot administered, unless they have a qualified exemption.  By January 1, 2022, all HSHMC students will be required to show proof of vaccination to be permitted on campus, unless they have a qualified exemption. Students without the vaccine may still participate in our independent study program. The complete plan and timeline is available on our website. The first step to the plan is as follows: By November 15 Vaccination clinic at HSHMC for those needing 1st or 2nd doses Proof of Administration of 1st Dose or Qualified Exemption or Conditional Admission is Required Students who do not provide documentation of 1stdose, or submit a medical exemption or conditional admission, will not be allowed on campus. Students who do not provide above documentation will be referred to Independent Study beginning November 16 After reviewing the most up-to-date public health advice from the CDC, we believe that this measure is the most effective way for us to protect the health and safety of our students, their families, as well as all HSHMC staff. We will be offering reminders to our students throughout the fall semester, and will be hosting free vaccine clinics on campus several times before the end of the year October 25, November 15, and December 6). If you have medical concerns, please contact your medical provider. With this new mandate, we hope to continue our mission of providing a safe learning environment to all of our students. Together, we can reach peak immunity at HSHMC! POLICY   On October 1, 2021, Governor Newsom announced that the COVID 19 Vaccine is being added to the list of required school vaccinations. This followed actions taken by Los Angeles and San Diego Unified School Districts which mandated COVID vaccines in order for students to attend in person learning. And now school boards throughout the State are adopting vaccination plans and timelines to require all eligible California students would need to show proof of vaccination. On October 12, 2021, HSHMC will hold a Board meeting, and after public comment, the Board will take action on its Student Vaccine Plan.   HSHMC STUDENT VACCINATION PLAN: To Be Considered for Approval 10/12/21   Background HSHMC has been steadfast in our commitment to make safety of our students, families, and community a priority of the highest magnitude during the pandemic. Our attention to safety includes our decisions to close campus programs last [...]
