This morning shortly before 7:00 am, one of our Sweetwater High School students was struck by a motor vehicle while the student was attempting to cross a street.  The accident occurred at Lamar Street close to Sweetwater Middle School where the tennis courts are located.  Police and medical personnel were alerted to the scene immediately, and the decision was made to care flight the student to Abilene for further treatment.  Parents were also notified and were present at the scene.  The student was in stable condition as she was transported via helicopter this morning.  As a district, we appreciate your prayers for this student and the family.

Sweetwater ISD 'Day of Service' Planned for the Morning of November 21st

Download the Day of Service Project Request Form (Microsoft Word)

The Sweetwater Independent School District will be participating in a day committed to serving the needs of the community.  This “Day of Service” for SISD will provide our students with the opportunity to give back to the community by participating in various service projects that are designed to make Sweetwater, Texas, a better community.  

In SISD, we believe that student service for the community is a vital tool that we can utilize to help our students achieve our district mission of ensuring that all of our students are successful in their learning for life.  One of the greatest gifts that we as educators can hope to instill in our student body is the willingness to put the needs of others above the needs of self.

Tuesday, November 21, 2017, is the final day of school prior to the student and staff holiday of Thanksgiving break.  In addition, this is an early release day for the district.  Because this day is typically not a day for the introduction of new instructional material, SISD wanted to use it in a more meaningful purpose.  The Day of Service activity will be held on this half day of school and give us the opportunity to align it within a week that is already geared toward counting blessings.  As such, SISD wants to take this opportunity to be a blessing to the community that we call home.
