HIGH SCHOOL SHADOWING INFORMATION
The Hillsdale High Shadowing Program pairs 8th graders with a Hillsdale leadership student and together they visit classrooms, meet faculty, hear about our programs, and participate in some of Hillsdale's activities. The day will begin at 7:45 am and students will be dismissed after lunch at 12:30 pm. Students are welcome to bring a lunch or purchase one at Hillsdale. Hillsdale administrators will also be on hand to meet with any parents at a separate and brief meeting that morning to answer any questions.
These are the days we will be hosting Shadowing this year:
· Monday, October 1
· Friday, October 4
· Monday, October 14
· Friday, October 18
Parents may sign up by submitting their information into a Google Form that will be linked on our website starting on Monday, September 9th. Families will have all week to submit their information. Hillsdale will use a lottery system and assign families to a shadow date and inform families who receive a spot no later than September 20th. Since we anticipate more families requesting a shadow date than we are able to accommodate, we encourage everyone to attend our 8th Grade Information Night on Wednesday, October 30 starting at 6:30pm in the HHS auditorium. Information is also available on our website at our "Prospective Students and Families" page (https://www.smuhsd.org/Page/1518).
San Mateo High
We will release the shadowing application on Tuesday, September 3rd and will close it on Friday, September 13th.
Shadowing is NOT first come, first served. It is a lottery system. Only 35 spots will be available on each shadow date to keep classroom disruptions to a minimum.
Please be sure your student is available on the date that you have chosen.
San Mateo High School is a cell phone free environment. A shadow student's cell phone will be locked in a pouch upon start of the program and will be unlocked at the end of the program.
