Friday, Nov. 12th

School will be open on Friday, November 12th.  There were two communications from the district regarding a potential non-instructional day for the 12th and now school will be in session.  Due to the multiple emails any student who is absent will receive an excused absence.  COVID related illnesses should still follow protocols set forth by the county or district Nursing and Wellness Department.  Please see below if your child has any COVID-like symptoms.  

Upcoming Parent Teacher Conference Week

Next week (Nov 15-19) is a full week of minimum days.  Students will be released at 12:15 each day to allow teachers time to hold conferences with parents.  Please be sure to check with your after-school providers to confirm their schedule for this week.  Teachers will be reaching out to schedule a time with you to review your student’s academic progress so far this year. Conferences will be held via Zoom since parents are still not permitted on campus.

English Learner Advisory Committee

Hancock is looking for parents to join our English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC).  Are you the parent of a child learning English?  Want to help ensure that Hancock’s program and services for English learners are the best that they can be?  We need you!  Join us for an information session over Zoom on Wednesday, November 10th from 3:00-4:00 to find out more about how, with just five hours of time committed this school year, you can help improve the educational experience for our students.  Please feel free to email Mrs. Galaviz at mgalaviz@sandi.net with questions.  We hope to see you then!  See Flyer for details

Illness Absences During the COVID Pandemic

Students who are sent home or asked to stay home with any symptoms that could be COVID related are only able to return to school if a negative PCR COVID-19 test result is provided to our health office, or if the student quarantines for 10 days. Students can utilize free PCR testing at drive-up centers at the District’s comprehensive high schools .To schedule an appointment at one of these high school locations, visit the district’s SDUSD COVID Status Webpage. Click on the COVID-19 Testing link and look for Symptomatic Testing.

After an illness related absence, the guidelines for your student to return are as follows:

  • Improvement in symptoms
  • 24 hours fever free without the help of fever reducing medication
  • Negative PCR test (please note: rapid/antigen tests are not accepted) - please present the result to our health office (bvaldez@sandi.net) before sending your student back to school. Students must get a green “cleared” pass from the front office before they can return to class.

Need to Report an Absence?

If your child will be absent from school, please be sure to report your absence to the office, not just your teacher.  You may report the absence using this google form or you may also call our phone line at 619-605-3200 and press 1 for attendance to leave a message.  Please be specific in your reason.
