Dear HSHMC Families, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 104 (Gonzalez) making students enrolled in high school in the 2020-21 academic year eligible to apply to have a letter grade replaced with a pass or no pass grade. These grade changes will not negatively affect a student’s grade point average and the California State Universities must accept pass or no pass grades without prejudice for any applicant enrolled in high school between 2020-21 and 2023-24. A list of all post-secondary educational institutions within the state that have indicated they will accept pass/no pass grades without prejudice is linked below. Please note that some higher educational institutions, including those from other states, may not accept a pass no pass grade. Should you choose to request to change a grade from the 2020-2021 school year, you must complete the application linked below and return it to HSHMC within 15 days of this notice.

Hello, this is Sheri Johnson from HSHMC with an important message. We were notified today that an individual at our school has tested positive for COVID-19. Due to procedures related to privacy laws, I am limited in what I can say. I 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. I 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.
Our students got to show off their artistic talents, as well as their trigonometry skills, in an outdoor chalk-drawing assignment of the unit circle. One of the groups even dedicated their work to a student for their birthday! At HSHMC, we always love keeping things fresh by changing up the learning environment whenever we can. If you see any of these students, congratulate them on some fantastic work!
HSHMC is planning a free trip this fall to KNOTT’S BERRY FARM for all HSHMC students who are fully vaccinated! How to participate: If you are already fully vaccinated, please provide us with proof of vaccination to join in. Get fully vaccinated at HSHMC on Wednesday, July 7 and July 28. Get fully vaccinated on your own before school starts. We hope that all of our students will be fully vaccinated before attending HSHMC in the fall. In addition, Sharp will allow our students back at the hospital for internships as long as they are fully vaccinated. All other internships will be dependent on vaccinations as well. One of the best things we can do is encourage and help everyone who is eligible for the vaccine to get one. Sharp HealthCare has agreed to come back to HSHMC to provide another opportunity for you to have your HSHMC student (ages 12 and up) and your family vaccinated and will be here to administer the Pfizer vaccine as follows: Wednesday, July 7 (1st Vaccination Date) – 8:30 – 1:30 Wednesday, July 28 (2nd Vaccination Date) – 8:30 – 1:30 Please make your appointment NOW by going to: https://myturn.ca.gov Minor Consent Form When making your appointment, simply use our zip code 92105 for the area you want to get your vaccination in and our school site will pop up with available appointments for July 28. Your appointment for the second required vaccination on July 28 will be scheduled when you receive your first vaccination on July 7.

June 13th, 2021- Weekly School Bulletin This Tuesday, June 15 is the last day of school. All classes will be asynchronous and there will be no in person teaching on campus. Please be sure your child has completed and turned in all their work. At this point, if your child is carrying an “I” (Incomplete) in any course, they are at risk of failing if they do not clear their incomplete. Any student with an incomplete at the end of the school year will be mandated to summer school until all incompletes are clear. We will be collecting all the technology loaned to all 9th – 11th grade students during the school year unless they are attending summer school. If your child is not attending summer school (or returning to HSHMC next year) please return the Macbook Air, Chromebook (if you have not yet returned it), and any other technology checked out to you by HSHMC, during our drive by return technology event this Wednesday and Thursday, June 16 and 17 between 8:00 am and 3:30 pm. Summer school will be in person at HSHMC and begins next Monday, June 21. If your child has been assigned to or registered for summer school their schedules are available in PowerSchool. In addition, we will be mailing home schedules mid-week once grades have been finalized and we determine who must attend academic recovery due to incompletes. We will also reach out to you by phone should your child be mandated to Academic Recovery during summer school. Senior Graduation for the Class of 2021 will be held is this Tuesday at Liberty Station. Tickets are limited to 3 tickets per graduate. Unfortunately, we are unable to allow admission to anyone without a ticket. However, the graduation ceremony will be live-streamed directly from our website so that all family, friends, and our HSHMC community will be able to watch and celebrate our graduates. Thank you for a wonderful year and for your partnership as we successfully made our way through a unique and challenging year together. Have a great week.
