We hope you have planned to join us for our Welcome Back Family Dinner this Thursday, September 5 at 5:30 pm. If you plan to attend and have not already RSVP'd, please do so at the link below.

Family Dinner RSVP

As we begin a new year together, please remember that daily attendance is extremely important and directly related to student success. School attendance is a primary responsibility of every student and family and demonstrates family commitment to HSHMC and its program for student success. Therefore, students are expected to maintain 100% attendance. If a student misses school, the student is expected to make up that time by attending an extended day program, such as Saturday school.

If your child is going to be absent, please call the school at 619-528-9070. We ask that you also review our attendance policy located in the student handbook posted on our website.

Although attending Saturday School is not an ideal way to compensate for actually attending school regularly, if absences do occur, a student may clear one school absence for each Saturday School attended. Our first Saturday School scheduled is this Saturday, September 7, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. Students must stay the entire time to get credit for their absence.

In preparation for our health internship program this year, as a convenience, Sharp HealthCare will be on campus next Tuesday, September 10 to administer TB tests and flu shots required for students enrolled in a hospital internship. These requirements must be met before a student can attend their internship which begins the week of September 16. Permission forms are being sent home with your child and must be returned by Friday. A copy of the permission forms can also be downloaded from our website. No student will be given the required shots without parent permission.

If you have not already done so, we need all students to return the free or reduced lunch form or fill out the on-line application located on our website. A new application must be filled out by families each school year.

Finals are today, Monday, June 10 and tomorrow Tuesday, June 11. We have early dismissal on both days at 12:35 pm for both Middle School and High School. Monday, in addition to early dismissal, our building will be closing at 5:00 pm so that everyone can join in the graduation and promotion festivities. Please make arrangements to be sure your child is picked up from school Monday by 5:00 pm.

Senior Graduation and 8th Grade Promotion is Monday 6/10, at 6:00 pm at SDSU's Cal Coast Open Air Theatre. No tickets are needed. Parking on campus is $20 and must be paid in cash. We encourage carpooling, or using public transportation. Both the bus and trolley drop off right at SDSU. All students promoting or graduating must arrive by 5:00 pm.


Summer school begins on Monday, June 17. We are offering a variety of enrichment courses and look forward to students joining us for our summer program.


There will also be mandatory academic recovery for students ending the year with incompletes. Students who end the year with incompletes are at risk of not successfully completing 2018-2019 coursework. Students who do not complete required coursework are unable to promote to the next grade level and would be required to reapply for their current grade level. Please check your child's grades in PowerSchool to be sure they do not have any incompletes. Notices will be sent out this week to students who are required to attend summer school for academic recovery.


It has been a wonderful year. Thank you for ongoing support of our school, and for partnering with us in your child's education.
