IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Hello Montgomery community! (Para español haga clic aqui

We are beginning distance learning on August 3rd.  At this point we do not know how long we will remain in distance learning.  Despite not having students on campus, our goal is to continue providing a safe, supportive, and engaging environment for them to thrive in.  As we prepare for the start of school in two weeks we have information to share that is listed below.  We thank you in advance for taking the time to review and please don’t hesitate to contact us via email, phone, or social media.

First Day of School

School resumes Monday, August 3rd.  At this moment the first day of school is Monday, August 3rd; the school year will begin via distance learning.  The amount of time that we remain on distance learning has yet to be determined and relies on various health and government agencies.  Student schedules will be available through the Infinite Campus portals by Friday, July 31.  Instruction will be provided through Google Classroom.  Please be on the lookout for updates.

On-Line Registration

All students must be registered through the On-line Registration process also known as OLR.  If you have not completed OLR please go to www.campusportal.sweetwater.org and register.  For assistance please fill out the Google Form on the home page of our website or click HERE.  You may also contact our Registrar at Jacqueline.apodaca@sweetwaterschools.org .  If you are unable to communicate digitally then call (619) 628-3800 and leave a message.

Immunization

Will be required for all 9th grade students and students new to the district. Please email a copy of your student’s immunization record to Lani.bruer@sweetwaterschools.org.  Those missing immunizations have been sent a separate email.

Lunch Application

I am asking all parents to apply for Free and Reduced cost meals.   By filling out this form it ensures that we get appropriate funding to support our students.  The application is available at:

www.campusportal.sweetwaterschools.org.

Please complete the on-line application today.  Here is a help document if you need assistance in filling the application out.

Device Distribution (9th grade only)

If you are an incoming 9th grader there will be an electronic device distribution on Friday, July 31, at Southwest High School. You should have received an email from our District IT department with details.  9th graders who haven’t turned in their school iPad will keep them for distance learning and will NOT need to go to Southwest High. No details at this time for distribution to 10-12th graders who need a device.

Senior Pictures & ID’s

We are working with LifeTouch Photography as they setup an office in the South Bay.  More information to come.

 Athletics

At this time, all athletic activities including training, practicing or competing are not permitted. A statement from our CIDSDS commissioner was released yesterday which outlined the postponement of fall sports and the breakup of education based athletics into two separate seasons of sport (fall and spring).    For more details visit www.cifsds.org.

Textbook Distribution

A schedule for students to obtain books is being worked on.  Expect communication on this prior to August 3rd.

Counselors

Counselors return to work (remotely) on Tuesday, July 21.  Contact information is below and please look for updates through our website and social medial.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we begin this new and unique school year.  For the latest updates please continue to check our website, email, and social media (@louiezumstein) on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
