The wait is finally over as San Jacinto High School opens its new aquatics center. District and community members dreamed of a new pool for over twenty years but faced numerous funding challenges. After a gracious contribution from the Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians, they were finally able to make it a reality. The new pool is a place for students to learn perseverance, goal-setting, and resilience.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held this morning to celebrate the beginning of construction for Soboba Aquatics Center at San Jacinto High School. The community has been in desperate need for a pool since Sallee Park Recreational Pool, the only public pool in San Jacinto, closed in 2014. However, San Jacinto Unified School District (SJUSD) has been advocating for a pool long before the closure of Sallee Park.
