COVID-19 Information Parent and Student Resources, Meal Services, and Distance Learning 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.   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.

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. 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.

Project Details

How can we help provide San Diego artists with affordable housing?

In collaboration with Space4Art, students worked with local artists to design and build tiny homes that would allow the artists to remain in the expensive San Diego region and produce their art.The project began with students honing their building skills by helping construct a pocket park in Barrio Logan in collaboration with Space4Art. Next, students launched a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter and raised over $18,000 to finance one tiny home. Students formed groups and each group was paired with a local artist who became that group’s client. After interviewing clients about their needs and wants, students produced professional drawings and 3-d models that were critiqued by the clients and professional architects. All students participated in the construction of one tiny home.
