Procedures for High School Visitors
Parents and all visitors that visit Sweetwater High School will need to first stop at the Main Office, present a valid Texas ID card (such as a driver license) and obtain a visitor’s pass. The pass must be worn at all times while you are visiting our school. If you wish to talk with your child’s teacher, please make an appointment at least 24 hours before you would like to meet. Teachers cannot interrupt instructional time to talk with parents. However, we would like to encourage parents to take the time to meet with their child's teacher.  Recent Sweetwater High School graduates may not visit the campus to each lunch and visit with currently enrolled students.

Sweetwater High School utilizes V-Soft Visitor Security Software. V-Soft helps track visitors, students, faculty, contractors and volunteers at our school, providing a safer more monitored environment. When you obtain a visitor's pass or come into the office to pick-up your child from school, your Texas ID is scanned into this system. This system screens visitors and has the ability to provide alerts on people who may jeopardize the safety of our school. 

Thank you for your continued support as we work together to ensure that every child receives a safe, secure and orderly learning community!!!
