Uvalde Students Returned to School

On September 6, 2022 students at Uvalde Consolidated ISD returned to school. The district delayed the start date in order to increase security measures throughout the district. Parents were also given the opportunity to send their children to school in Uvalde or choose elsewhere. Most parents apprehensively sent their kids back to school in the district. Many parents said that due to distance and other situations, they weren’t able to send their children out of the district.


In order to show support to the Uvalde community, faculty, staff and students at Southwest High School wore maroon on September 6.

Compact and Parent Involvement

Dear Parents!


We need your help! Do you have ideas that will help SWHS run smoother?! Do you want a voice in what's happening on SWHS campus and the students? If so, we need you! We are looking for 4 to 5 parent volunteers.


Parents, members of the community, and school staff will meet to discuss the design and implementation of the Parent & Family Engagement Policy.


Please contact Sharri Peterson at speterson@swisd.net, if interested.
