Measles Information
The recent measles outbreak in California has dominated local news for the past weeks in Los Angeles County. Measles (rubeola) is a highly contagious viral disease that spreads from person to person by respiratory droplets.
Students and staff must help prevent measles from entering school campuses. Common signs and symptoms include fever, runny nose, cough, conjunctivitis (pink eye) and a rash all over the body. Severe complications are rare but may include pneumonia, encephalitis (swelling around the brain) and even death.
Vaccination with two doses of measles-containing vaccine is the most safe and effective way to prevent the disease. Studies show that 99% of persons who receive two doses of measles vaccine develop immunity (protection against the disease).
View our newest article from the Daily Breeze from their visit to the new MultiMedia Center! The Media Center is open to all HHS students Monday-Thursday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Fridays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Please encourage your students to complete their homework in our new Media Center after school. Students need a valid school ID to enter and to use technology. Students from any high school in Centinela Valley Union High School District are welcome to use our Media Center. Computers and laptops are available for use, and students can print their assignments, projects and reports. Your students now have a safe and supervised space to study before school and after school!
Parents, please help us enforce the attendance policies at Hawthorne High School!
School starts at 8 a.m. daily. Please make every effort to get your students to school by 7:45! Students who are late are missing valuable learning time, and they are a disruption to classrooms. See the HHS tardy policy in English and Spanish attached.
