The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) is partnering with the High School Esports League (HSEL) for a spring All San Diego County Esports Tournament. Unlike in the past, your school does not need to have an established team or club, just students who want to compete and a teacher, administrator or school employee who is willing to attend with them. 

We are opening it up to all San Diego area students who are interested. There is no minimum or maximum student participation requirement for your school to participate. Leading up to the tournament, SDCOE and HSEL will be hosting meetings to prepare you and your students for the tournament. 

Please let us know if you are interested in participating by filling out the attached survey. In addition, we have created a survey you can copy and send out to your students to gather their information. We ask you share the number of students your school will have participating and also the additional games they would be interested in playing. As we gather information we will schedule the meetings. Below are the details:

Dates: Tuesday, April 27; Wednesday, April 28; and Thursday, April 29

Time: 4:30 om to 7 p.m. nightly

Confirmed Games: Rocket League, Smash Brothers, Mario Kart

*Please check your Jupiter messages for the more detailed information regarding Athletics!*

YEARBOOK UPDATE

Many questions are going around about the status of the yearbook, so we wanted to send out a quick FAQ!

  • Will there be a yearbook this year? YES, we will have a 2020-2021 yearbook! 😊 The details around pricing are still being worked out as we are working to provide a quality product despite the limitations the pandemic has placed on us.
  • Will there be underclassmen photos in the yearbook? YES! We are currently finalizing a program that we are rolling out as a backup plan for underclassmen photos. This program will send students a link to upload a selfie (abiding by certain rules and parameters) directly into our Yearbook program system. All selfie photos will be prescreened by the yearbook advisor and administration to ensure appropriateness and that it meets all of the requirements. We are still in discussions with the district on getting approval for students to come to campus to take underclassmen photos, but in the event that we are not allowed to do so in the near future, the selfie program will allow us to still include underclassmen photos in our yearbook. Stay tuned for more information on this next week!
  • We haven’t been to school all year, so what will actually be in the yearbook? In addition to senior portraits and underclassmen photos, our talented Yearbook staff and advisor have awesome ideas on how to capture the reality that is the 2020-2021 school year! But they can’t do this without the help of the students!! We want everyone to be a part of the yearbook, so Eagle students, please click on the link below to access the Google forms that the yearbook staff has compiled for you: www.everydayeagle.com/yearbook . Also, don’t forget about the Senior Ads section! Parents/Students can purchase an ad in the yearbook to send a special message/memory to a Senior! Ads are also a great way for seniors and your friends to carve out a special section in the yearbook that is customized for your group! The yearbook staff is running a special discount on Senior ads starting Monday, so be sure to take advantage!
    • EARLY EAGLE SPECIAL on YEARBOOK ADS: From February 1st to the 12th, purchase your ads at a limited time discounted price!
      • Full Page ads – $185
      • 1/2 Page ads – $95
      • 1/4 Page ads – $50
      • 1/8 Pages ads – $30
    • Prices are only for a limited time and will go up after this deal is over. Take advantage of these prices to say something special to a graduating senior in the yearbook! Senior ads can be purchased at the following link: https://www.jostens.com/apps/jcom/router.mvc?affiliateId=1661839
  • When will yearbooks arrive? In an attempt to try to capture as much of the year as possible, the original yearbook submission deadline of mid-March has been pushed back to early June. This will allow the yearbook staff to capture any of our sports that resume, as well as the potential activities that may occur in April, May, or the last week of school….all things that normally don’t make it into the yearbook. Because of this delayed submission date to include as much content as possible, yearbooks will arrive in late-July/early-August.

We hope this answers some of the burning questions you may have about yearbook. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!

Taking Care of your Emotional Health during a disaster, emergency, crisis, pandemic, politics, etc.
Remember: it is okay to stay informed but it is also okay to take breaks too. (READ FULL ARTICLE FROM CDC: emergency.cdc.gov/coping/selfcare.asp )

•Stay informed– When you feel that you are missing information, you may become more stressed or nervous. Watch, listen to, or read the news for updates from officials. Be aware that there may be rumors during a crisis, especially on social media. Always check your sources and turn to reliable sources of information like your local government authorities.
•Avoid too much exposure to news– Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories. It can be upsetting to hear about the crisis and see images repeatedly. Try to do enjoyable activities and return to normal life as much as possible and check for updates between breaks.

ATHLETICS UPDATE

A Message from Ms. Scott and Ms. Haynes

One of the things we have all been anxiously awaiting, besides a safe return to school, is a safe return to athletic competition. CIF recently released a statement on the status of Athletics, but ultimately, SUHSD has final say on what we do in our district. Please read the important update below on Athletics:

https://tinyurl.com/SUHSDAthleticsUpdateJan15

As stated in the update above, the clearance website will open on Wednesday, January 20th for the only two allowable Purple Tier Sports: Cross Country and Swim & Dive. This does not guarantee that we will be starting competition, but solely that we are getting athletes prepared, so in the event that we get the green light from the district, we are ready to go! If your child is interested in playing either of those two sports, it is recommended that if you haven’t already done so, please make sure you have a valid physical and valid health insurance. All physicals must be valid through June 2021. You must also complete the online clearance process. More information to come on Clearance Dates and Times. Please visit our Athletics page on our school website for detailed instructions on how to clear for a sport, as well as insurance information and details on a location that does walk-in physicals:

http://olh.sweetwaterschools.org/athletics/

If you or your child has any questions about a specific sport, please click on the link for Coach Contact Information and email the specific coach regarding your questions or concerns. As always, if you have any other questions, please reach out to Athletic Director – Ms. Stilwell, morgan.stilwell@sweetwaterschools.org.

SENIOR UPDATE – CLASS OF 2021

As of right now, there has been no official word on the status of the Class of 2021 Graduation Ceremony. Having said that, Olympian High has selected a tentative date of Friday, June 4, 2021 for the Class of 2021 Graduation Ceremony, whether traditional, virtual, or other. While we don’t know what the status of the pandemic will be at that point, we want to make sure we are prepared. All San Diego County and SUHSD COVID-19 safety guidelines will be followed. Backup plans are currently being developed in the event that we will not be able to host a traditional graduation ceremony.

Community Service: Just a reminder, our official guidance from the district for this school year is that the class of 2021 will not be required to meet the minimum 30 hours of community service in order to be eligible for graduation. Because the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency has extended the order to stay home and eliminate any gatherings, and the social distancing requirements remain in place, we do not want to expose students to any potential harm. The community service requirement has been eliminated for the class of 2021.

In the meantime, our Graduation Retail partner, SoCal Recognition, has updated their website to streamline the process of purchasing graduation items, as all items will be directly sent to the home of the student. Please remember that purchasing your cap/gown and any other graduation products is optional. Please follow the instructions below:

STEP #1:

All Graduates are required to “REGISTER” online with SoCal Recognition, Inc. at www.SoCalRecognition.com

STEP #2:

Seniors and Senior Families will receive an email confirming their registration information and can go back online to https://www.socalrecognition.com/ to complete their order for all Graduation Products including Caps & Gowns.

CURRENT PROMO CODES (Case Sensitive):

25OFFDIP = 25% OFF Custom Diploma Plaques

**Promo Codes are applicable through March 1, 2021 and must be applied at the time of checkout (cannot be applied retroactively once an order is completed).**

SPECIAL NOTE: All Graduation Products are manufactured, packaged, and drop-shipped directly to the student’s home address including the Cap & Gown unit.

The Hybrid Return / Attendance

A reminder to parents, caregivers and students: Attendance is based on the asynchronous (live) portion of each class, students must log in with their teacher and remain in the online class until dismissed. Every class has an asynchronous (not live) portion in which they can finish their work, so students should be working throughout the day, much like the hours they kept when we attending school physically.

To report absences due to technical issues, we ask that students take a screen-print of the problem and report it to attendance using the new Attendance Change Request for Tech Issues (Only)

To contact our Attendance Office please call (619) 656 – 2400 (press #1) or via email at diana.enriques@sweetwaterschools.org
