Fall Vacation: October 2-6.

Fall Vacation will be all next week from October 2-6.

School will begin on Monday, October 12.

With one week for fall vacation, next week would be an excellent opportunity for students to examine their grades on Jupiter Ed and complete any 0/F assignment or any assignment with a low grade. Students can contact me on through Jupiter Ed if they have any questions on any assignment. Students may also need your support in checking their grades and keeping them accountable on catching up on any work.

August 31 & September 1- Monday and Tuesday Asynchronous Learning

For Monday, August 31, 2020 and Tuesday, September 1,2020, SUHSD classes will occur asynchronously (in lieu of virtual online instruction), so families can focus on ensuring a successful virtual opening of the school year at our feeder school districts. We wish our families and our feeder school districts a successful 2020-2021 school year opening.

Teachers will send communications to students regarding the assignments they will need to complete for measuring student attendance for the day. Because asynchronous attendance will need to be taken, attached is a sample spreadsheet that teachers may use for their own classes. Teachers need to account for student engagement and turning in assignments for August 31.   Students who do not turn in assignments will be marked as ABSENT for Monday, August 31, 2020.

CLASS CHANGES EFFECTIVE MONDAY, AUGUST 24, 2020

Dear Cavalier Parents and Students,

We are consolidating and opening some classes.  As a result of this, student schedules will change.  Many students will change teachers, or periods, or both.  In addition, a few classes closed due to very low enrollments. Students enrolled in these will be choosing a different elective.

I want to reassure you that all students will still be enrolled in courses that will allow them to meet promotion requirements and prepare them for high school.

If your students will have schedule changes, you and your children may see these changes reflected on Infinite Campus starting Thursday, August 20 through Friday evening, August 21.

Students will follow their new class schedule as it appears on Infinite Campus starting Monday, August 24, 2020.

For students whose schedules have changed, their teachers will send an invitation to their new class through Google Classroom no later than the morning of Monday, August 24, 2020.

Teachers may start sending invitations as early as Sunday evening, so it is best to check both Sunday night and Monday morning before first period.

All students have to do is check the Google classroom dashboard and join their new class/es.

Starting Sunday night or Monday morning:  Here is how to view your students’ schedules on Infinite Campus:

Parents will need to use their parent portal login in order view their student’s schedules. Your login credentials are the same username and password you used to complete the Online Registration Application and/or Meal Application.

 

Students login credentials as follows:

Password: the same exact password you use to log into your sweetwaterschools.net email account.

 

Below is the url to access the Campus Portal:
