2017 Walk-Through Registrations

Walk-Through Registration is designed to help students get the new school year off to a good start: Students can pick up their class schedules, check out textbooks, purchase ASB Cards and PE clothes, pre-order yearbooks and take their school photos.

All students should receive a registration packet in the mail from your school. Parents and students should review the Registration Packet together and fill out all required forms before their Walk-Through dates. All registration forms must be turned in before students can pick up their class schedules. For students/parents who cannot attend Walk-Through, parents/guardians may designate in writing an adult to attend on their behalf. (See registration forms for more information.)

Students who do not pick up their class schedules at Walk-Through will NOT be able to get their schedules until the first day of school.

Dates and times of each school's walk-through registration events are below.

Parents and students are also invited to use the HJUHSD Home Connection to keep track of student grades, attendance and other information. If you already have an HJUHSD Home Connection account, you can login at HJUHSD Home Connection. If you do not have an account, you can follow these step-by-step instructions to make one: Create an HJUHSD Home Connection Account.

The Link Leader is a responsible older student, who has been hand selected, from a large group of applicants, and has met the qualifications to be a good role model and positive leader on our campus.

Health News - Summer 2017

Stay safe while you enjoy your summer, stay active, and have fun with your family!

Drowning Facts
According to the CDC, about 10 people die every day from unintentional drowning, 2 being children less than 14 years of age. Visit this site to help inform students and parents of the risks and tips to keep children safe in the water: https://www.cdc.gov/SafeChild/Drowning/index.html

Norovirus
Norovirus was the 2nd leading cause of outbreaks in untreated recreational water, such as lakes, from 1978-2010. It can live in water for several months or possibly even years. Swimming venues that are not treated with chloride can pose a particular risk since there are no chemicals to kill the stomach virus. Swimmers can help protect themselves, their families, and friends from the norovirus by following a few easy and effective steps:
  • Keep pee, poop, sweat, and dirt out of the water 
  • Don’t swim if you have diarrhea or have been vomiting 
  • Shower before you get in the water 
  • Don’t swallow lake or pool water 
  • Take kids on bathroom breaks 
  • Check diapers, and change them in a bathroom or diaper-changing area -- to keep germs away from the water. 
Visit the CDC’s Healthy Swimming Site for more tips: http://www.cdc.gov/healthywater/swimming/

Bicycle-Related Injuries
Bicycle-related injuries and deaths can be prevented by ALWAYS wearing bicycle helmets (which are properly fitted) every time you ride. All bicyclists, regardless of age, can help protect themselves by wearing properly fitted bicycle helmets every time they ride. Learn more about Bicycle Safety from the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/motorvehiclesafety/bicycle/index.html

Tick-borne Disease and Illnesses
Tick-borne disease symptoms vary by type of infection and can include fever, fatigue, headache, and rash. Clinicians or families are encouraged to make use of the brochure: “Tick-borne Disease of the U.S.: A Reference Manual for Providers”, published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2013. The manual contains information on tick identification, disease symptoms, lab testing, and recommended treatment. You can download this manual at: https://www.cdc.gov/lyme/resources/tickbornediseases.pdf




If your child needs medication at school, a new school medication form is required each school year. Before school starts in August, please bring the updated medication order and properly labeled medication to your child’s school site or to the walk-thru registration.

If your child has a special diet or health concern, please list these on the emergency cards, so that a health care plan can be created for the new school year.
