Student & Parent Handbook
Below, you will find Hage Elementary's Student & Parent Handbook for this school year. This document is pulled from a Google Drive database and is updated to reflect the changes necessary for smooth operations of the school.
It includes information such as school policies, the academic calendar, daily schedules, and campus life.
Facts for Parents
Facts for Parents is an annual publication containing updated information relevant to the families of San Diego Unified including rights and responsibilities as well as district, local, state, and federal policies that impact all students.
Parents are legally entitled to and should receive an updated booklet at the beginning of each school year. A signed Universal Form shows that parents have received this information, and a copy of the completed form should be maintained at sites during the school year.

Mira Mesa Cluster Schools
What is a School Cluster?
In the San Diego Unified School District, schools are organized into clusters for greater community cohesion. Clusters consist of a high school and the middle and elementary schools that feed into it.
Together, the Mira Mesa Cluster School (MMCS) Council’s teaching and learning community excels in providing the highest quality education for all children. MMCS believes that sharing the responsibility of education among school personnel, students, parents and other community members is essential to maximize student achievement. MMCS emphasizes meeting the diverse academic, social and personal needs of our cluster schools.
Meetings are generally attended by school principals (or associate principals), parents/caregivers, and representatives from community groups such as the Mira Mesa Town Council, Mira Mesa Library, and the MCAS Miramar School Liason.
All are invited to attend Cluster meetings, which take place throughout the school year. Meetings are scheduled for the following dates/locations:
Wednesday, October 11, 2023 | 4:30-5:30PM
Meet the Area Superintendent! We'll introduce the community to our new Area Superintendent AND spend time mapping out the rest of the Cluster calendar for the year.
