In a previous email we outlined HTH's plan for implementing distance learning in the event we did not reopen schools on April 7th. We have officially decided that we follow suit and will not return for in person instruction on April 7th.
When HTH teachers return on April 6th, they will spend that week designing and piloting plans for distance learning. We will be reaching out for your thoughts and feedback as we do this work.
We will roll out our approach to distance learning the week of April 13th and you will receive detailed information from your child’s teachers about what to expect going forward. We are asking teachers to plan for their first distance learning module from April 13th - May 8th. Our hope is that by that time, we may be able to return to school, but if that is not the case, we will begin a second module that will run until the end of the year.
En un correo electrónico anterior, describimos el plan de HTH para implementar el aprendizaje a distancia en caso de que no volviéramos a abrir las escuelas el 7 de abril. Hemos decidido oficialmente que hacemos lo mismo yno volveremos para recibir instrucción en persona el 7 de abril.
Cuando los maestros de HTH regresan el 6 de abril, pasarán esa semana diseñando y poniendo a prueba planes para el aprendizaje a distancia. Nos pondremos en contacto para solicitar sus pensamientos y comentarios mientras hacemos este trabajo.
Implementaremos nuestro enfoque de la educación a distancia la semana del 13 de abril y su familia recibirá información detallada de los maestros de su hijo/a sobre qué esperar en el futuro. Estamos pidiendo a los maestros que planifiquen su primer módulo de aprendizaje a distancia para el 13 de abril al 8 de mayo. Nuestra esperanza es que para ese momento, podamos regresar a la escuela, pero si ese no es el caso, comenzaremos un segundo módulo que se ejecutará hasta el final del año escolar.
I hope this newsletter finds you well, safe and healthy! I know this isn’t the spring break you wanted but hopefully, you took advantage of the downtime and were able to create deeper relationships with your families and friends.
The future of the school year is uncertain, including for HTH Athletics. We are not sure if we will even finish spring sports. We are here for you! We will continue to connect and continue to work together to build our community (online) and build our skills around the game (online). This is an incredible time to grow individually and deepen relationships from afar. The coaches and I are working together to provide weekly routines and weekly team meetings. We will be sending resources for each of you to stay fit, stay on top of your skills and stay connected as a team. We are in this together! Take this time to allow your actions to speak louder than your words. Identify what allows you to be the best version of yourself. During this time you have the power to become your best self and create your own story. The intention and energy that you put into your daily life will support and help you through this journey. Stay committed and understand the power you have. We are all adjusting and trying to navigate this new normal. Please remember to be gentle with yourself and those around you. Change is not always easy. Use this time in the next week to prepare yourself mentally and physically by creating healthy and realistic habits.

At High Tech High, we believe that athletics should be a program where students can practice collaboration, show their character, and develop transformative skills that they will use in life. (Communication, leadership, interdependence, resilience, humility and focus). Our athletes are students first and do not subscribe to one single story. They are not confined by labels but by their integrity on and off the courts and fields.
High Tech High strives to provide an equitable experience for all athletes and works to ensure that we are building community and honoring each other and ourselves. Our athletics teams support this mission in three ways:
by doing what we say we are going to do. Our coaches and athletes will show up ready to work hard and commit.
by creating a community of spirit and inclusion. Our athletes will be kind and inclusive of others.
by competing to the best of their ability with integrity. Our athletes will represent high tech high by being good humans and will always strive to be better. They will carry themselves with grace and self respect and will assume best intent.
