Sheriff's deputies nabbing students skipping school

Posted: Updated:

Sheriff's officials will carry out an anti-truancy sweep in Santee, Lakeside and unincorporated El Cajon today and crack down on minors who skip school.

The sweep is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and target minors loitering within the boundaries of the Grossmont Union School District, according to San Diego County sheriff's Deputy Edward Ward.

"A truancy detail early in the semester will discourage daytime loitering throughout the school year," Ward said.

Residents can report minors loitering during school hours by calling the sheriff's non-emergency number at (858) 565-5200. The city of Santee also has a truancy hotline -- (619) 258-2345.
