We hope that you are adjusting well to distance learning. Thank you for all your efforts to do your best in school.
Our daily bell schedule is posted below:
Daily Student Schedule
Office Hours TBD by Teachers and communicated to the principal and students.
Mon / Wed
Tues / Thurs
1:00 PM-2:30 PM
Friday attendance is mandatory. The emphasis for Friday instruction is to review content presented earlier in the week to further student learning.
Teacher PLC time will be scheduled on Fridays from 8:20AM – 9:20AM
As a reminder, the expectation during distance learning is that all students attend synchronous instruction with their teachers Monday through Friday. All teachers are providing 30-45 minutes of synchronous instruction Monday through Thursday, where students and teachers have direct face-to-face time for instruction and learning. The remainder of the period is asynchronous learning, where students are completing assignments and teachers are available for help and support. On Fridays, all students must attend classes and attendance is taken. Teachers will use this time to review material, and provide additional support. Please note that even if students are completing all assignments independently, attendance during daily synchronous instruction is still required.
If students have not completed residency requirements, they can continue to attend classes until residency requirements are cleared. Please continue to work with our Registrar, Ms. Puga, to submit residency clearances at your earliest convenience. She can be reached at email@example.com.
We hope that you and your families continue to be safe and well.

For the past 20 years, San Diego State University (SDSU) and Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) maintained a long time commitment to a historic partnership that allows access and success for our students to be admitted to SDSU through the Compact for Success program.
SDSU has provided an update for the Class of 2021 to measure the readiness benchmarks that will allow the university to appropriately project admission and enrollment. SDSU’s goal is to provide the historical levels of access and support so that students may reach their personal and academic career goals. This update contains new information that will impact eligibility for Compact for Success readiness for the Class of 2021.
