Message from the Principal

Office of the Principal
Dear Sweetwater Families,

It is my sincerest hope each of our students and their families are safe and healthy. As we continue through distance learning, I am aware of the challenges each of you face daily. This is why the communication between our students, families, and staff is extremely important. We want to ensure everyone understands the expectations we have of students when it comes to their learning and the support staff will provide to them.

Students are expected to report to synchronous instruction for each period every day. Teachers provide synchronous instruction Monday – Thursday for 30-45 minutes each day and for 20 minutes on Friday. For the remainder of each period, students are expected to complete assignments and it is also a time they may ask their teachers for support. Our first progress report card will be issued on Friday, September 18. Students’ grades will show what they have achieved so far during the first 6 weeks of classes. If a student is earning a D or F in a particular class, the teacher should have already notified the student and their parent/guardian about the grade earned so far and communicated an intervention plan. Again, we want to communicate with one another on how we can all best support our Red Devils. Although we have more than half the semester remaining for students to complete their courses for credit, needed interventions should begin immediately to ensure they do not fail any classes.

Many of our students and parents continue to email their teachers, counselors, and administrators when the need arises and we thank you for taking the time to express any concerns and ask for support. We are here to assist you in any way possible during these times of uncertainty.

Sincerely,

Maribel Gavin

Principal
