Graduation Statement

Dear Students and Families of the Sweetwater Union High School District,
Graduations are a time-honored tradition that the entire community looks forward to every year. Unfortunately, because of the impacts of COVID-19, we have had to make adjustments to these traditions in 2020 in order to ensure the safety and security of our students, our families, our staff, and the entire Sweetwater Union High School District Community.

In late April we surveyed Seniors and their families to ask how they were feeling about graduation ceremonies. It was very clear that the great majority, 81% of students and 90% of families, believe that some type of graduation ceremony is important. The majority of students and families also believe that the ceremony should be delayed.

Given that as of now, the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency Public Health Orders still prevent public events and gatherings, graduation ceremonies in the Sweetwater Union High School District are postponed.

Graduation events will be considered in late July/early August under the guidelines of San Diego County Public Health Orders at that time. If a graduation event is not possible at that time, the events will be postponed until December 2020.

In the meantime, schools will be keeping in contact with our Seniors and families to keep them up to date on any updates and changes. We appreciate the Class of 2020 and look forward to celebrating with you!

Stay safe and stay well. #InThisTogether

In Unity,

Karen Janney, Ed.D.

Estimados estudiantes y familias del Distrito Escolar de Sweetwater,
Las graduaciones son una tradición que toda la comunidad espera cada año. Desafortunadamente, debido a los impactos de COVID-19, hemos tenido que hacer ajustes a estas tradiciones en 2020 para garantizar la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, nuestras familias, nuestro personal, y toda la Comunidad del Distrito Escolar de Sweetwater.

A fines de abril, encuestamos a los estudiantes del duodécimo año y a sus familias para preguntarles cómo se sentían acerca de las ceremonias de graduación. Estaba muy claro que la gran mayoría, el 81% de los estudiantes y el 90% de las familias, creen que algún tipo de ceremonia de graduación es importante. La mayoría de los estudiantes y las familias también creen que la ceremonia debería retrasarse.

Dado que a partir de hoy día, las Órdenes de Salud Pública de la Agencia de Salud y Servicios Humanos del Condado de San Diego aún impiden eventos públicos y reuniones, las ceremonias de graduación en el Distrito de Escolar de Sweetwater se posponen.

Los eventos de graduación se considerarán a fines de julio / principios de agosto bajo las pautas de las órdenes de salud pública del condado de San Diego en ese momento. Si un evento de graduación no es posible en ese momento, los eventos se pospondrán hasta diciembre de 2020.

Mientras tanto, las escuelas se mantendrán en contacto con nuestros estudiantes del duodécimo año y sus familias para mantenerlos actualizados sobre cualquier actualización y cambio. ¡Apreciamos la Clase de 2020 y esperamos celebrar con ustedes!

Mantente seguro y bien. #EnEstoJuntos

En solidaridad,

Karen Janney, Ed.D.

Calling all Alumni!

As our centennial year quickly approaches, our goal is to create and build a museum that will reflect SUHI’s 100 years of pride and tradition.  As we develop our museum we are reaching out to the community for support. We are hoping to highlight each decade in the presentation of the museum. If you have any artifacts (ex. pictures, clothing, pins, vintage event posters, sports memorabilia, etc.) that you would like to donate to our museum, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will gladly pick it up from you, or you can simply drop it off at:
