From SDUHSD - We want to share Rady Children’s Hospital is hosting presentations on topics of interest to parents. Click the links below to watch each presentation.
  • Level Changes: SDUHSD course add/drop guidelines (four weeks at the beginning of each semester to address level changes in English and math). Level changes are dependent on class space/seat availability.  
  • Grades: Parents are encouraged to visit teacher websites and Aeries regularly with their students to monitor progress and to provide encouragement and support.
  • Academic support: If your student is regularly accessing supports on campus and is still struggling, please contact Laura Martin or Duncan Brown, counselors. 
  • Student involvement: A great way for your student to be connected on campus and meet other students with common interests is to attend any of our student-led clubs on campus.

Student support: Contact counselors Laura Martin or Duncan Brown, if you have concerns about your child's transition to and/or experience in middle school. We have supports in place for academic help and can help address personal/social/emotional concerns.
  • Grief group: SDUHSD has partnered with Elizabeth Hospice in providing grief counseling services for students who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Contact one of our counselors for more information.
    • Social-Emotional Support:  CARE SOLACE
