SUHSD Widespread Transmission Model

Spanish Version – SUHSD Widespread Transition Model 

Weekly testing is RECOMMENDED for ALL students, regardless of vaccination status. You may test using one of the options below:

  1. ELM Testing Center with Concentric by Gingko. We test Mondays and Wednesdays. If you have not registered your child, click on this LINK to register them. The code is Sweetwater-ELM.
  2. A home test kit. This is only acceptable for determining to return to school or to isolate. You will need official test results to return to athletics and extracurricular activities. Click on this LINK to download the form you need to complete to report the home test kit results.
  3. Your medical provider or other health organizations or any 211.org testing centers.

Bullying/Harassment and Social Media

Students and Parents,

As we see an increase in bullying/harassment, especially in social media, I am asking that you read ELM’s and the district policies on bullying and sexual harassment. Every complaint that is brought to us is taken very seriously and appropriate consequences are given; this will sometimes involve the Chula Vista Police Department.

Parents, if you have provided phones for your children, please take time to routinely check their social media to ensure that they are not following or making comments on posts that are all about demeaning other Triton students and staff.

Students, when we catch you, many of you say, “It was a joke.” Know that we don’t think any of these accounts, posts, comments, and likes as jokes. Many of what we have found are cruel and unacceptable. If you have posted, commented, or liked, we strongly suggest that you remove yourself from these accounts so that you do not get in trouble.

Use your social media for good.


Routines & Expectations for Success

Attendance is Key Academic Success:

  • This is a reminder that tardies and absences will affect your child’s academic and citizenship grades.
  • While we do not give detentions for tardies that occur at the start of the day, we encourage you to do your best to get your child here on time. First bell rings at 8:10 and they must be inside the classrooms by 8:15.
  • Absences must be cleared. If not cleared, you will continue to receive a call from the district until the absences have been excused.
  • Students with unexcused absences will be considered verified truant and are subject to appear before the Student Attendance Review Board (SARB) if absences go beyond 10 days.
  • If absences are COVID-related (C19+, Close Contact, COVID-like symptoms), please follow the latest SUHSD COVID Isolation/Quarantine Protocols and the Guidelines for AB 167 Synchronous Instruction.
  • If your absence is COVID-related, please use the ELM COVID Absence Form. Click on this LINK to access the form.
  • For all other absences, please have students bring a note to the attendance clerk upon return.

ELM Dress Code Agreement

  • Please remind your child(ren) that they must follow the dress code agreement.
  • Recently, students have shown up in pajamas and sliders. These are not allowed.
  • If students wear them on campus, they will be taken to the office to change.
  • Here is the link to ELM’s Dress Code Agreement.

Cell Phone Policy

  • Our cell phone policy is in full effect the moment your children step on campus.
  • Please review these expectations in the Students/Parent Handbook.
  • Any violation of our cell phone policy will result in an automatic confiscation of cell phones.
