Dropping off and picking up students – For student and parent safety, please remember that we are in a school zone, and all traffic laws will be enforced with the support of the Morgan Hill Police Department.

As a reminder:  Student drop-off and pick-up areas are in the east parking lot (Staff Lot) or in the front circle (Front Office Lot).  The student parking lot is only for students with parking permits; there are no drop-off or pick-up areas in the student parking lot.

We appreciate your help in keeping our students safe!


Chrombook Insurance – MHUSD sponsors a locally managed insurance as a way to keep costs low for our parents and students.  Families may purchase insurance to repair or replace lost or damaged school-issued Chromebooks for $35. Any purchase of insurance at this time requires the device​ and​ ​charger​ to be inspected by the site library staff or an MHUSD Technology Department employee.  Please go to the MHUSD Educational Technology page for information about the insurance policy and how to purchase one for your student.


Naviance Parent Training On Thursday, October 19th the district will host a Naviance training for all middle school and high school parents and guardians.  The training will be in the board room at the district office from 6:00-7:30pm.  Information will be available in both Spanish and English.  This training is the same training that was given in September and the same training will be given again on November 16.  Please contact the Counseling Office, 408-201-6214, if you have questions about your Naviance account.

As a reminder to parents, please do not send your child to school if he/she displays one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Earache
  • Persistent headache
  • Runny nose and /or persistent cough

Children who are ill at school do not have a productive educational day.  Please allow your child to recover from an illness at home.  Remember, should your child become ill or injured during the school day, it is the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to pick up your child in a timely manner.  In case a parent/guardian is not able to pick up his/her child, it is important to have an available emergency contact to bring your child home.

Is your emergency card up-to-date?  Please call the school office to report any changes in addresses or telephone numbers including emergency contacts.
