Superintendent’s Message – May 6, 2021

2021-2022 Reopening Message from Superintendent Aguirre

Hello Sweetwater Community,

With just a few more weeks left in the 2020-21 school year I want to thank you for your continued support of our Sweetwater Union High School District Schools. This school year has been one of the most challenging ones in recent memory due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and despite much difficulty we have made it to this point. The health and safety of our students, staff, and broader community has been paramount as we navigated the turbulent times this year.

In addition, I would like to take this opportunity to officially introduce myself, as I consider it a true privilege to have been appointed Superintendent by our Board of Trustees on Monday, April 26th. I’d like to express my gratitude to our Board of Trustees and share that my commitment to our community is to work tirelessly on behalf of all of our students and staff to focus on those important matters that ensure we are supporting our students, addressing the pandemic, and providing support to our entire community.

Our district strives for academic excellence, and makes every effort to support our diverse communities in the South Bay. Please know that that I will make every effort to foster and cultivate the relationships we have built with our stakeholders to ensure the continued success of our students, schools, and community. I am extremely excited about the work in front of us. With my own children attending San Ysidro High School, I experience first-hand the implications of our decisions and our actions. It is with this in mind that I will strive to take actions that support our community, with a renewed vigor. This same energy will be applied towards developing our plans for in-person instruction resuming for the 2021-22 school year. This of course, would be in alignment with health and safety guidelines issued by the state and county health authorities.

Please accept my best wishes for a happy and healthy rest of the school year.

Moisés G. Aguirre, Ed.D.
Sweetwater Union High School District
