Thanksgiving Holiday Closure

November 16, 2017

Dear Students and Families,

On behalf of the faculty and staff in the Department of Alternative Education, we hope you enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.  During this time of year it’s always important to reflect on the many opportunities we are thankful for in our lives and in our department we are especially thankful for your beautiful children that you allow us to be with every day.  In addition, we want to send our well wishes to those families that cannot be together over the holidays, including our brave parents in the military forces who serve this great country and are unable to be with their families.  Have a restful and relaxing holiday season with friends and loved ones and please be aware of the following:

Schools and Services Closed, Monday, November 20 – 24, 2017: Please be aware schools and services for students in the Sweetwater Union High School District and the Department of Alternative Education will be closed in recognition of the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Schools and services will resume normal hours of operation on Monday, November 27, 2017.

As always, please visit the Alternative Education website for more information about our services at:
