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.

As a reminder, we are asking that every family create a parent account on PowerSchool in order to track your child's grades and attendance, and to easily access forms, surveys, and communications from us. If you have not yet made your parent account, please do so now. We mailed out your access codes and directions on how to create your account last week. In addition, your child's mentor has the access codes you need to create the account and can help you as well.

Once you have created your PowerSchool account, our next request is to ask you to please log in and click on forms where you will find our Free or Reduced Lunch form that we need filled out for each family. We will be using our own form this year, instead of the District form used in the past. Thank you for completing this as soon as possible, but no later than October 1.

Thank you for making sure your child is on time for each scheduled session. Attendance will be taken during the first 15 minutes of each Zoom class session and you will be notified if your child is not in attendance. If your child needs to be absent for any Zoom session, please call the school ahead of time at 619-528-9070 to report the absence.

Our upper division students begin their Monday college and internship classes this week. Please make sure they check PowerSchool to be sure they are ready to log on to Canvas at their scheduled class time.

If you have questions, or just want to touch base, I am holding Principal's Office Hours via Zoom at 9:00 am on Tuesday and Thursday this week. The Zoom link is available below. I can also be reached by email anytime at sjohnson@hshmc.org.

August 27th Parent Webinar



Dear HSHMC Families,

Welcome to the new 2020-2021 school year at HSHMC!

We hope you are doing well and staying safe. In preparation for the First Day of School ONLINE on Monday, August 31, we have put together specific school supplies for each student based on the courses they will be taking. In addition, each student who has not already checked out a Chromebook from HSHMC will be provided one from HSHMC. Log in credentials and instructions will also be provided. We are asking HSHMC families to please drive by the school to pick up their supplies according to the following schedule:

9th Grade – Tuesday, August 25 – 9:00 am – 11:00 am

10th Grade – Tuesday, August 25 – 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

11th Grade – Wednesday, August 26 – 9:00 am – 11:00 am

12th Grade – Wednesday, August 26 – 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Thursday, August 27 – 9:00 am – 11:00 am - Makeup Day (For those who cannot make it at their assigned time)

If you have more than one HSHMC student, please use the schedule according to your oldest child so you only have to come by once. For example, if you have a 9th grader and an 11th grader, please use the pick up on the day scheduled for the 11thgrader.

On the day of pickup, please drive into the school's driveway where you will see a tent and signs for pickup. A staff member will place the supplies in the trunk of your car to limit contact and practice social distancing.

In addition, here is some important information for your review and attention:

School Calendar – we hope you will find this useful to mark special school days and holidays in advance.

Free & Reduced-Price Meal Application Packet – We ask that all students please fill this form out whether or not you believe that your child qualifies for free or reduced price meals. If you have more than one child attending HSHMC, please only fill out one form and include each child on that form. (Returning students: please note that a new form must be filled out each year).

The Free and Reduced Price Meal Application must be completed by going HERE.

Health and Wellness - You child's health and wellness are very important to us. HSHMC is committed to supporting the mental and emotional wellness of our students as these barriers can impact student success. Access to community pupil mental health services and resources is made available through our website at https://www.hshmc.org/mental-health-wellness.

We look forward to welcoming all of you to HSHMC very soon.

Sincerely,

Dr. Sheri Johnson

Principal, Operations and Communication
