Sweetwater Accounts Will be Deactivated

Graduating students (and students leaving the district) will need to create a new google/gmail account (for personal use) and save any desired files/information from their existing SUHSD google account. Their SUHSD GOOGLE/GMAIL accounts, ending in, will be deactivated and deleted. Students should not use the SUHSD domain as a personal google/gmail account.

  1. For 12th/13th grade students graduating, we will deactivate/delete their accounts starting the first weekend of September. (We understand that students can possibly receive awards communications via email through August.)

  2. Other students, leaving the district, will have 30 days before their account is deactivated/deleted.

  3. We will send out reminders (IC Messenger) in May to students and parents reminding them to save wanted information from their google account and to create a personal google/gmail account, to be used for their higher education endeavors or gmail needs when they leave SUHSD.

  4. This notification will also be posted on our district website, under the Students and Parents tab, starting in May.
