    Please continue to check this website for school closure updates.  Due to limited staff, please email general school closure questions to:  info@santeesd.net or leave a voicemail at (619) 258-2300.

    We miss you and hope you are finding ways to connect with friends and family during this difficult time. We know you have been waiting to hear about our plans for the remainder of the school year. Since the San Diego County Public Health orders are written “until further notice” and based on social distancing expectations in these orders, we will not be able to re-open this school year for traditional, in-person classes but will continue delivering our remote learning plan through our last day of school, June 10.

    Please read, and follow the links below, for the most current information on remote learning, iPad pick-up, and student meals:

    1. Promotion:
      We have a District committee preparing details for promotion. Site-based promotion activities include a video presentation shared digitally with families, promotion "parades" using personal vehicles, and 8th grade promotion yard signs.

    2. Report Cards Mailed Home:
      Students will receive a final report card for the year with written comments from the teacher(s).  Students will not receive a standards-based or letter grade for Trimester 3. If your student has multiple junior high teachers, he/she will receive written comments in the four major content areas: English language arts, mathematics, science, and history

    3. Next School Year:
      Our planned first day of school for the 2020-21 school year is Wednesday, August 19. Based on the rapid changes we’ve all been experiencing, it is hard to predict exactly what school will look like on August 19. However, within the next week, parents of Kindergarten – Grade 7students will receive a letter regarding a new District process called “Annual Information Renewal”. This year’s annual renewal process will include:

      •  instructions on how to update your contact information in our student information system;
      •  your family’s intent to return to Santee School District in the fall.

    5. Student meals continue to be provided to our students until further notice. Starting April 23, meals for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be distributed on Thursdays. We will be closed on Fridays.  Meals may be picked up at the following locations:
