It's that time of year again for thousands of South Bay kids: School is back in session this week for Chula Vista Elementary School District and Sweetwater Union High School District students.
The 2017-18 school year for Chula Vista Elementary School District students officially begins Wednesday morning, with Sweetwater Union High School District students starting the new school year on Thursday.
Both districts are under year-round schedules and had six full weeks of vacation since the previous school year ended in June.
Meanwhile, Sweetwater Union High School District officials said the district has no immediate plans to build a new middle or high school. A spokesperson told 10News property is set aside for a middle school in near the Otay Ranch Town Center, but design and construction would take at least four years if it started this year.
