Health Sciences High and Middle College (HSHMC) is a school where students earn diplomas that matter! In partnership with Sharp Healthcare, SDSU professors, and San Diego Community College, HSHMC staff will ensure that each student has positive and meaningful experiences throughout high school while achieving academic and social success in a vocational program setting. HSHMC students will earn high school diplomas, complete college entrance requirements, and have opportunities to earn community college credits, degrees, or vocational certificates. In addition, students will work with healthcare professionals through job shadowing and internships to explore real-world applications of their school-based knowledge and skills as well as future career choices. Students will graduate with pride in their diplomas that represent a well-rounded, meaningful, and useful education...as well as a plan for their futures.

We hope you are healthy and doing well during these most difficult times. We are all facing challenges and uncertainties. Closure of school which began March 16, 2020 is now estimated to last through April 27, 2020 but could be extended on a week-to-week basis as this pandemic unfolds. We are seeking advice and reviewing updates from federal, state and local officials and agencies and paying close attention to actions other Districts are taking. Rest assured, every decision we are making is based on our best intentions to support HSHMC students and their families.

Teachers have reached out to students to engage in distance learning. Students should check their school email accounts, continue to participate in scheduled work online, and communicate with their teachers if there are any questions.


We have put together a PowerSchool Learning page with information for students, families and teachers on tips and best practices regarding distance learning. The link below will direct you to this resource page.

Dear HSHMC Families,

You may have heard on the news Tuesday that California Governor Gavin Newsom shared his opinion that schools may not reopen this school year. We understand this information is unsettling, but as of now, there is no definitive date on when schools will reopen.

At this time, the Governor has not mandated school closures and is allowing the decision to be made on the local level. San Diego County issued a health order on Monday stating that all public and private schools "shall not hold classes or other school activities where students gather on the school campus." As you know, HSHMC is following that directive. All decisions about reopening will be made in conjunction with local public health officials.

While we are uncertain how long this closure will last, we are putting plans in place that will provide students with resources they need, whether we are closed for three weeks as scheduled, or longer. We encourage you to think in both the short- and long-term as well. Here are some resources to assist you.

  • There are many sites across the county set up to provide school-aged children with breakfast and lunch.
  • We have digital learning resources available that we encourage you and your student to utilize while schools are closed
  • In partnership with KPBS and the San Diego County Office of Education, we welcome you to access 12 hours daily of state standards-aligned television programming scheduled by grade level. A student does not need access to a computer or the Internet to watch. Tune into KPBS 2 with an antenna at channel 15.2, or on Cox 811 or Spectrum 1277. Additional digital content is also accessible through PBS LearningMedia.
  • We are working to address services for our students with disabilities and will directly contact parents of those students regarding services during this time.
  • We encourage you to stay informed of the situation by regularly checking updates from San Diego County Public Health Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. San Diego County Public Health Department updates it website daily with information about COVID- 19 and related emergency orders. Please check this site regularly and adhere to all orders and recommendations.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. We will continue to communicate regularly as we learn new information. In the meantime, please contact me at sjohnson@hshmc.org with questions.

Estimado Padre/Tutor:

Como tal vez esté enterado por las noticias, el martes el Gobernador de California Gavin Newsom expresó su opinión que las escuelas tal vez no vuelvan a abrir durante el resto de este año escolar. Comprendemos que esta noticia es preocupante, pero al momento no hay fecha definitiva para cuándo volverán a abrir las escuelas.

Hasta este momento, el Gobernador no ha ordenado el cierre de escuelas y está permitiendo que la decisión referente a esto se tome a nivel local. El lunes, el Condado de San Diego emitió una orden de salud proclamando que todas las escuelas públicas y privadas, "no deben impartir clases u otras actividades escolares donde los estudiantes se reúnen en el plantel de la escuela." Como usted lo sabe, HSHMC está obedeciendo esa orden. Todas las decisiones en cuanto a volver a abrir se harán en conjunto con los oficiales locales de salud pública.

A pesar de no saber cuánto durará este cierre, estamos poniendo en marcha planes para proporcionarles a los estudiantes los recursos que necesiten, ya sea que permanezcamos cerrados por tres semanas como está actualmente previsto, o por más tiempo. Le alentamos a que usted también haga planes a corto y largo plazo. Aquí hay unos recursos para ayudarle con eso:

  • Se han establecido muchos sitios a través del condado para entregar desayunos y almuerzos a los niños de edad escolar
  • Tenemos recursos disponibles para aprendizaje digital que le alentamos a usted y su estudiante que usen mientras están cerradas las escuelas.
  • En colaboración con KPBS y la Oficina de Educación del Condado de San Diego, le invitamos a que tenga acceso a 12 horas diarias de programación de televisión alineada con los estándares estatales y presentados en un horario por nivel de grado. Un estudiante no necesita acceso a una computadora o al internet para ver la programación. Sintonice KPBS 2 en el canal 15.2 usando una antena, o por cable en los canales Cox 811 o Spectrum 1277. Hay contenido digital adicional por medio de PBS LearningMedia.
  • Estamos trabajando para solventar los servicios para los estudiantes con discapacidades y contactaremos directamente a los padres de esos estudiantes en cuanto a los servicios ofrecidos durante este periodo.
  • Le recomendamos que se mantenga informado de la situación revisando las actualizaciones más recientes de la Agencia de Salud y Servicios Humanos del Condado de San Diego y de los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC). El Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado de San Diego actualiza su página de internet diariamente con información acerca del COVID-19 y las directivas de emergencia relacionadas. Revise esta página regularmente (puede seleccionar en la misma página la traducción al español) y obedezca todas las órdenes y recomendaciones.

Le agradecemos su paciencia y comprensión durante esta época sin precedentes. Nos mantendremos en comunicación regular conforme salga nueva información. Mientras tanto, si tiene preguntas por favor póngase en contacto con Sheri Johnson, sjohnson@hshmc.org.
