SUHSD Distance Learning Update for Semester 2

Dear Sweetwater Union High School District Families,

We hope this letter finds you and your family safe and healthy. The COVID-19 pandemic remains a major challenge to our community, state, nation, and specifically our schools. Here in South County, where our COVID numbers are nearly twice that of San Diego County, we acknowledge the daily impacts the pandemic is having on all of us.

Given the current state of community spread, we wanted to update you on action that our Board of Trustees took last week: the Board of Trustees approved a plan to continue distance learning into the second semester in January 2021 . They also approved plans to continue and expand small in-person groups and supports where possible, and to continue our athletic conditioning program for students per the guidelines of the California Department of Public Health.

Finally, the Trustees also updated metrics for reopening in-person learning on campus based on South County’s COVID cases and positivity rates in our community and added an additional milestone checkpoint on our plan for February 1, 2021 . This enables us to continue to provide updates on small in-person groups and, if possible, move into the next steps of our reopening plan’s return to in-person instruction. 

If you did not have a chance to watch the meeting, where staff also updated the community on distance learning, metrics for reopening and finances, you can view it here.

We acknowledge how difficult these decisions are for our school community, all of whom wish we could be back on campus teaching and/or learning. We will continue to closely monitor the latest information and work with our local health agencies, medical professions and our partners to ensure that our reopening decisions focus on the health and safety of our students, staff and the entire community.

Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility, and please remember to follow the guidance of our health professionals: wear a mask; socially distance, and wash your hands.



BSCU Leadership Opportunity

We are excited to partner with the Black Students of California United Program to offer our students support, resources and opportunities. The BSCU (www.blackstudentscu.us/) will help guide us in bringing our BSUs together districtwide to promote Culture, College/Career, Connections and Community.

The BSCU has extended two awesome opportunities for our African American students to serve in a leadership role at the state level via two programs:

Youth Senate Program
• Position Overview: Youth Senators represent the student members of the Black Students of California United. Youth Senators learn the issues and concerns of their constituents and report back to the Executive Board. Youth Senators are also responsible for planning our annual Leadership Conference.

Health Ambassador Program
• Position Overview: Health Ambassadors will serve as Advocate-Educators, Griots, and Storytellers on issues that impact their peers, and host events that are centered around improving the health and wellbeing of Black youth in the state of California. Each Ambassador is responsible for one impact area: Social Emotional Learning, Nutrition & Physical Health, Sexual & Reproductive Health, and Vaping & Smoking.

If you are interested in one of these opportunities, simply complete the Google Form below and we will be in touch with more information!

OHS Virtual Targeted Saturday Support

Who attends? Each subject area has an opportunity to TARGET SPECIFIC students who need the extra support. Students attend the specific time slot for the subject area based on teacher invitation. If a student does NOT need support in all subject areas, the student and teacher may stay on BEFORE or AFTER the time of the subject area session. 

Attendance credit? Yes, students will receive attendance credit in the following way; where absences take priority over tardies and will be cleared first. Each student MUST sign-in at the beginning of each hourly session to maintain a CLEAR record of attendance, otherwise the student will not receive attendance credit. This does not affect the support the student will receive. The teacher will provide the student with the Google link for sign-in purposes.

UPDATED message from Principal Huslin

Principals Message / Principal's Message

It is with a great deal of sadness that I am informing you of the death of one of our beloved staff members. Our PE and dance teacher, Ms. Sholty, unexpectedly passed away Sunday evening. She had suffered a sudden medical emergency from which she did not recover. Her passing has deeply affected us all. We have grief counselors available for anyone wishing to talk about this tragic event. These counselors will be available the remainder of the week and as needed in the future. Our thoughts and well-wishes go out to her family and friends.

Olympian staff and district support are available to offer assistance. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
