COVID-19 Information

Dear High Tech High Families,

In a previous email we outlined HTH's plan for implementing distance learning in the event we did not reopen schools on April 7th.  San Diego Unified School District released a press release last night, indicating that they will not be returning on April 6th and will be implementing distance learning for all of their schools through the month of April.  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.

Leaders and teachers from across High Tech High have been working to design a framework for distance learning at our schools and create the infrastructure necessary to support that plan.  We’ll continue to engage in this work over spring break using your input regarding your technology access to help us craft an approach tailored to our community’s needs.

If your family currently does not have reliable internet access, please see the options that local internet companies are offering as families try to stay informed.  Getting Internet Access: Available Plans https://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/he/hn/availableinternetplans.asp

Thank you for your patience and support.

Estimadas HTH familias,

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. El Distrito Escolar Unificado de San Diego lanzó un comunicado de prensa anoche, indicando que no regresarán el 6 de abril y que implementarán el aprendizaje a distancia para todas sus escuelas durante el mes de abril. Hemos decidido oficialmente que hacemos lo mismo y no 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.

Los líderes y maestros de High Tech High han estado trabajando para diseñar un marco de referencia para el aprendizaje a distancia en nuestras escuelas y crear la infraestructura necesaria para apoyar ese plan. Continuaremos participando en este trabajo durante las vacaciones de primavera, utilizando su aportación con respecto a su acceso a la tecnología para ayudarnos a diseñar un enfoque adaptado a las necesidades de nuestra comunidad.

Si su familia actualmente no tiene acceso confiable a internet, vea las opciones que las compañías locales de internet ofrecen mientras las familias intentan mantenerse informadas. Obtención de acceso a Internet: planes disponibles https://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/he/hn/availableinternetplans.asp

Gracias por su paciencia y apoyo.

What is the HTe Family Collaborative?

It is our Parent Association, and it is important that all HTe families are involved. The purpose of the HTe Family Collaborative is to be an avenue for HTe families to connect with other HTe families, and to become familiar with and involved in the High Tech High community.  It was formed to create ways for HTe parents and guardians to be involved in their child’s classroom and support the school.

How Can I Get Involved?      

There are several ways to get involved in the HTe Family Collaborative:

Be a Room Parent. Help create enthusiastic connections among Parents & Guardians in each classroom!   Recruit other parents to help in classroom, be involved in the Family Collaborative, participate in teacher appreciation events, chaperone field trips, etc.  Help your child’s teacher communicate classroom needs  to other parents (snacks, supplies, expert helpers, sign up lists etc.). Help create a positive environment for other parent & guardians, who wish to be classroom helpers. If you are interested, please contact Georgia Figueroa.

Family Creative Learning  Come with your child(ren) and make fun things together with other families and our teachers. There are 6 sessions this year) Questions? Contact Riley Meehan.

Help Plan Schoolwide Events Work on a committee to create social events that will encourage families to connect with other High Tech families and become involved in the High Tech culture. These events will be primarily no/low cost.

Family Collaborative Meetings  These evening gatherings are an opportunity to learn about current student projects, parenting issues, and general school information.  Planning for Schoolwide Events also occurs during these meetings.

Director’s Advisory Group This group is made up of a diverse representation of parents & guardians that embody the school’s demographics.  Multiple grade levels can be represented. The purpose is to give and get input & feedback to the School Director on a variety of issues (e.g. Title I and LCFF funds, Special Education funding, Communication with Families)

Dates and times for Family Collaborative gatherings are listed on the HTe Calendar, at the top of our Home Page.
