Message from the Principal

Due to recent news articles regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) at a local retail store in our area last week, we have received several questions from parents/guardians and staff in regards to how it's affecting our school community. Rest assured that the Sweetwater District has been in contact with officials from the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency (HHS) and the City of Chula Vista regarding this situation.

“We have been advised by County HHS that there are no direct connections to any students, parents, or staff within the Sweetwater District. Anyone that is potentially at risk was contacted directly by County HHS and that the risk of anyone who might have been in the area, or visited the store, is low.”

I have included a link to our District Website ( where you can find more information on the Coronavirus such as answers to frequently asked questions, a link to information from the San Diego County office of Education, San Diego County Health and Services, and from the Centers of Disease Control.

Thank you!

See Something - Say Something!

Please remember that school safety is everyone's responsibility. If you see something that doesn't look right, say something to a trusted adult. If you have information and would like to report it, but remain anonymous, you can use the P3 Tips App. The App is free to download fro the iTunes store and you can have it on your school issued iPad too. It's easy to set up and your tips go straight to San Diego Crime Stoppers. Lawn enforcement works with school administration and will even issue a reward if your tip leads to an arrest or even school disciplinary consequences.

Remember, if you see something, say something!
