Principal’s Newsletter 

Good morning Del Mar Family,

As we close out the first 6 weeks, I encourage all families to have a conversation with their students on how these first 6 weeks went.  Grades will be sent home next week but it’s also a good time to remind your student about the resources available here at Del Mar High School.

  1. Tutoring Center - I mentioned this last week, but we have opened up the tutoring center for all students, please see the schedule below and have your student stop by if they are struggling with a subject or assignment.  We also have an Emergent Multilingual tutoring center in room 37 after school everyday except Friday.

  1. Office Hours - I have linked the office hours HERE.  These are times that teachers are available to help students in need and answer any questions.  You can access this from the website.  I strongly encourage families to talk to their students about utilizing office hours and stopping by during the week to check in with a teacher, catch up on a missing assignment or test or to simply get additional help.  


If you are out of class, you will receive detention.  

Over the past 2 weeks, we have seen a number of students out of class during the school day.  Effective immediately, any student who is out of class without a pass will receive a detention and a phone call home.  Students should have a pass on them at all times if they are going from class to the restroom or out of their class for any reason at all.  Students should be in class at all times.  We suggest that no student should have to take a break or be out of class more than 4x in a single period.

COVID Tracking
 The health and safety of our students and staff are our top priority, and we want our community to be informed. This week, our campus had confirmed 5 COVID-19 exposure. Each case of COVID-19 on our campus is thoroughly investigated to identify close contacts quickly and stop any further exposure.
The affected individual(s) were directed by the Public Health Department to isolate and their immediate family/household members and all identified close contacts have been contacted by school staff and directed to follow the  CDPH quarantine recommendations for schools, monitor for COVID-19 symptoms, and comply with the recommended interventions.
Please continue to monitor your students for symptoms and keep them home if they are sick. Please contact your healthcare provider if they develop symptoms or if you have any additional questions or concerns. For more information on CUHSD's COVID-19 Plan and Response please  click here.
