Important Information for Families

Important Information from Driver's Education | Workforce Essentials


Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff:

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning, as potentially strong and multi-day Santa Ana winds are forecast for Southern California that could increase the risk of wildfires. As a result, San Diego Gas & Electric has notified about 88,700 customers that they could be at risk of prolonged Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS). Chula Vista is among the communities that might be impacted through such shutoffs.

Public Safety Power Shutoffs could happen as early as Wednesday night/Thursday morning and potentially last through Sunday/Monday. Please note that if a power outage does indeed come to fruition, our District will work with the San Diego County Office of Education to determine next steps with attendance for the affected period.

We ask for your patience and flexibility, as teachers may also be affected by power outages if teaching from home, and synchronous instruction might be limited. Similar impacts could be experienced by students at our campuses hosting the Distance Learning Support Program.

Visit sdge.com/ready to see a map and a list of communities that could be affected.

The CVESD Caring Crew and YOU!

We would like to remind our entire community that following the four pillars of health can prevent the spread of COVID-19. As we prepare for the eventual return of some students to campus in phases, our District and school will be enforcing the four core principles (also known as four pillars) for the prevention of COVID-19. These include: 1) Daily Health Screenings, 2) Mask Wearing, 3) Physical Distancing, and 4) Frequent Hand Washing.

Computer Devices & WIFI to Loan Families

We recommend each student have their own laptop with a camera and microphone for Distance Learning.  Some tablets have compatibility issues with the Microsoft Teams platform and online learning programs.

If your child needs a device or wifi hotspot, please complete and submit this form below, so we can plan and prepare the devices for distribution.  If you do not need a device or hotspot, please do not fill out this form. Please fill out a form for each child who needs a device.  Do not fill out for a child who previously received a device.  We will notify you when you device and/or WIFI hotspot are ready.

Safer Activities for Halloween:

  • Online parties/contests (e.g., costume or pumpkin carving) and drive-through events and car parades.
  • Dressing up homes and yards with Halloween-themed decorations.
  • Halloween movie nights with your own household or at drive-in theaters.
  • Outdoor activities such as pumpkin patches where people use hand sanitizer and maintain 6-feet of distance from others.
  • Make fall recipes and crafts as a family for creative dinners and spooky decorations.

Safer Activities for Día de los Muertos

  • Playing music in your home that your deceased loved ones enjoyed
  • Making and decorating masks or making an altar for the deceased
  • Setting out pillows and blankets in your home for the deceased
  • Joining a virtual get-together celebration

Things to Keep in Mind:

Regardless of how you choose to celebrate Halloween or Día de los Muertos it is important to keep the following in mind:

  1. Face Coverings: Face coverings must be worn in accordance with the CDPH Guidance on the Use of Face Coverings, unless an exemption is applicable. Please note plastic, rubber, vinyl and other Halloween costume
  1. masks are not an acceptable substitute for cloth face-coverings for the prevention of COVID-19 spread.  
  2. Practice Social Distancing:  Avoid confined spaces, especially indoors. Stay least 6 feet away (3 or more adult steps) from all other people who are not part of your own household, especially while talking, eating, drinking, and singing.
  3. Good Hygiene: Wash or sanitize your hands often. Clean frequently touched items regularly.
  1. Minimize Mixing: Plan activities to limit mixing between different households. Californians are permitted to gather outdoors with a maximum of two other households. This means that on Halloween, if you are spending time with others, you must stick with a maximum of three households (including your own), and not mingle with others. Gatherings should be two hours or less.
  2. Stay Home if You are Sick or You are in a High Risk Group: If you are sick, or you have been in contact with someone who is sick with COVID-19 or has symptoms of COVID-19 stay home, and away from others. People at higher risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 (such as older adults, people with chronic medical conditions) are strongly urged to stay home.
  • If you are sick or in a high risk group, you should discourage trick-or-treaters from coming to your door by turning off your porch light and other Halloween decoration lights on Halloween night.
  • Please respect your neighbors and your community: Everyone is navigating the COVID-19 pandemic to the best of their abilities and has different comfort levels about what is safe to do. Your local community or your neighbors may be more restrictive than these CDPH guidelines, and we ask that you respect your neighbors’ wishes and concerns
  • Thank you for helping to keep our community safe and healthy during this holiday season!

When Will We Reopen Schools for Live Instruction?

Rep. Kilmer to hold Town Hall Meeting in Forks | Forks Forum

Although our goal of a phased return to in-person instruction was proposed for October 26, 2020, our District will take extra precautions and postpone the reopening because COVID-19 transmission rates in our boundaries are still too high. We want to give you notice now of our decision. We remain committed to a safe return when the data in our boundary area supports resuming at least a hybrid form of in-person instruction. In the meantime, we will continue working with our bargaining groups and stakeholders to ensure a safe reopening at a future date.

Our school community encourages all adult citizens to participate in the upcoming election. Please visit https://www.sdvote.com/ to learn about how to ensure your voice is heard in the upcoming election.

Not only is November 3rd Election Day, but it is also MTS Free Ride Day! To help increase access to in-person voting options, all fixed-route MTS and NCTD buses, Trolleys, SPRINTER and COASTER will be free. 

While you can skip the fare on Free Ride Day, face covering are a must! Face coverings (worn over your nose and mouth the entire trip) are required on all MTS and NCTD vehicles.

California offers voter registration online, by mail, and in person. Online voter registration is available at RegisterToVote.ca.gov. You can also request and complete a paper voter registration form and mail or hand deliver it to your county elections official to register to vote.

Election Day: November 3, 2020

All adult citizens are encouraged to vote!

Registration Deadlines: Online registration deadline is October 19. By mail registration deadline is showing that its is postmarked by October 19. In person registration deadline is November 3.

Absentee or Permanent by mail ballot: Request by October 27. Return by mail must be postmarked by November 3. Return in person must be received by November 3 at 8 pm. Early voting is available October 5 – November 2, but dates and hours vary. For more info, contact the County Registrar of Voters: https://www.sdvote.com/content/rov/en.html

Fun Fact: Did you know that you can also register and vote on Election Day?

Conditional voter registration is a safety net for Californians who miss the deadline to register to vote or update their voter registration information. Voters can use the conditional voter registration process from the day after the deadline all the way through Election Day. Eligible citizens can go to their county election office, polling place, or vote center to register and vote conditionally. These ballots will be processed once the county elections office has completed the voter registration verification process.

The Wildcat Way – Oct. 5-9, 2020

Senior Living October Activity Calendar - McKnight Place

Welcome to our Loma Verde School blog. This is the 6th week of school. We are continuing in distance learning format for our preschool through 6th grade students. Please read below for important information.

PLEASE ATTEND – CVESD VIRTUAL TOWN HALL MEETING MONDAY, 10/5 AT 6:00

The Chula Vista Elementary School District will hold a Virtual Town Hall meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, October 5. Join us to hear more about plans for a proposed phased reopening of schools to in-person instruction. The time and date of the meeting were moved up in response to parent and staff feedback, and to accommodate the inclusion of two medical professionals with extensive experience and knowledge of the health and care environment, especially in regard to our local community. Superintendent Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D., will be joined by Jeannette Aldous, M.D., and Shaila Serpas, M.D., for this informational and educational presentation. https://bit.ly/2GvE2DR

This event will offer translation in Spanish via the following link: https://bit.ly/30p8p6c

The Superintendent, Dr. Escobedo, released a letter to families on Friday discussing the POSSIBILITY of bringing Pre-K to 2nd grade students and SDC students back for in-person learning. The POSSIBLE date is October 26th. Please know that this date may change or be pushed back due to health regulations. At this time, there is not a date set for grades 3-6. Some important things to note:

  • Your child’s teacher may change
  • School will be modified days Monday through Thursday only
  • There will be no childcare available
  • At any time we could have a full return to Distance Learning due to health restrictions

Every family must fill out the REGISTRATION COMMITMENT FORM below.  Please fill out the Registration Commitment Form by 10/6 for every student that you have at Loma Verde (for example, if you have 3 students then fill it out three times).

https://bit.ly/308rxFt

I know many of you have questions regarding the Commitment Form. Mrs. Watson will respond to all your email as soon as possible. We did want to respond right away to two frequently asked questions.

Question: Can we wait until after the Town Hall on October 5th to respond?

Answer: We will absolutely extend the deadline through October 6th so you have the opportunity to attend the Superintendent’s Virtual Town Hall Meeting on Monday, October 5th at 6:00 pm. If you would like to revise your response after the Town Hall, you may do that.

Q: Why are we being asked to fill out a commitment form for the school year? Why not for the quarter? 

A: Thank you for the feedback. Dr. Escobedo agrees that the commitment should be for the quarter. A similar survey would be sent out each quarter. Again, we want to reiterate that any opening is based on transmission rate data that will be continuously examined. Please tune in to the October 5 District Virtual Town Hall meeting for more details.

Loma Verde Lending Library – IT’s FREE

Lending Library | Archdiocese of Newark

On Monday, September 21st from 12:00-2:30, Loma Verde will open our NEW Lending Library. It’s Free. We at Loma Verde believe that during this time we all need to have real books in student’s hands. We have over 200 books donated by The Molina Foundation.  Please join us! Come borrow a book and if you have books at home that you have already read to add to our library please drop them off. When you are finished reading the books drop the book off. We will make sure they are cleaned and lent out the next week.

The Lending Library will be open every Monday, starting September 21st from 12:00-2:30 pm in front of Loma Verde Elementary School. 

Please Return Your Library Books

return library books

Please return any Loma Verde library books you still have at home. We will be sending out overdue notices this week to students that have not returned library books from the 2019-2020 school year. There will be a box in front of the gate by the office from 7:30-4:00 for you to return library books.

Send Us Your Distance Learning Pictures!

If you would like to send pictures of your children doing distance learning, we would love to post them on this blog and on our social media pages without their names. We love sharing all the wonderful learning activities teachers have planned and promoting all the positive things happening at Loma Verde Elementary School. Please send pictures to the Principal via email at bree.watson@cvesd.org. Thank you.

Need Classroom Packets or Supplies?

school-supplies-clipart – Riverside Elementary

Your child’s teacher will contact you about picking up distance learning supplies and packet distribution. If you missed picking up items needed for distance learning instruction, please email your child’s teacher to arrange for an alternate time to get the materials.

Attendance and Student Engagement

A friendly reminder that school starts online for all students at 8:00 amAttendance and student engagement continue to be tracked and monitored, according to state law and AB 77 and SB 98. Engagement is a student completing assignments and being engaged in the learning synchronously (live) and asynchronously (not live with teacher).  Teachers are tracking students’ attendance and assignment completion. Please contact the school office at (619) 420-3940 if your child is having trouble accessing class online.

iReady Math Assessment Continues Sept. 14-18 for 1st-6th Graders

Students in grades 1 through 6 will be continue taking the i-Ready math diagnostic assessment this week. i-Ready allows your child’s teacher to meet your child exactly where they are and provides data to increase your student’s learning gains. The i-Ready Diagnostic is an adaptive assessment that adjusts its questions to suit your student’s needs. Each item a student sees is individualized based on their answer to the previous question. For example, a series of correct answers will result in slightly harder questions, while a series of incorrect answers will yield slightly easier questions.

A friendly reminder to all parents: Please allow your child to take assessments and tests without your help and hints. These assessments give teachers a true understanding of how to help your student flourish this year.

Some questions may be easy while others may be tough. While it may be tempting to help your child with some of the problems they will see on the assessment, we need the test results to be an accurate reflection of what your child knows. Encourage your student to take each question seriously. Emphasize “thinking before clicking,” because just clicking through will not be a productive use of their time nor reflect what your child actually knows. Remind your child to read directions and questions in their entirety, use paper and pencil to solve math problems if needed, and use the tools that appear at the bottom of the screen. The results will reveal what your child can do independently. In order to help your child get re-energized, games may be embedded throughout the test, so don’t be surprised if you see your child playing an engaging math game during his/her assessment time. We appreciate your support!

Here are some tips that will help your child be successful:

  • Ensure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before taking the assessment
  • Be sure your child eats a good breakfast the morning before taking the assessments
  • Designate a quiet area for working, free of distractions
  • Use headphones
  • Encourage your child do their best and take their time

School Expectations for Distance Learning

Educators and parents share their thoughts on distance learning

Our school year will begin with online instruction on Aug. 31 at 8:00 am for all students, as campuses in CVESD remain closed due to the spread of COVID-19 across the community. Meanwhile, we continue to plan for the physical reopening of the school’s campus once it is safe to do so, with guidance from experts in science and public health.

Parents and families, Loma Verde School needs your help to set up kids for success this year. The students and staff at Loma Verde Elementary School believe that a safe and positive online environment is important to a child’s learning in the digital classroom.  To provide such an environment, Loma Verde Elementary School has established the following online norms and guidelines:

Students should be ready to learn when the school day starts.  This means your child should be “school-ready” and prepared for a day of learning at 8:00 am.  We recommend that your child is dressed and has eaten breakfast so that learning may start when the school day starts.  A computer and reliable internet connection and/or other materials such as paper, pencils, crayons or markers, books, and workbooks may be necessary to support your child’s work that day.  If you need a district-provided laptop or wifi hot spot device in order for your child to learn, please complete the online Computer Survey. The school will provide required learning materials in the coming days and weeks.

Check for updates from your child’s teacher via Class Dojo or email.  Two-way communication is important for your child’s success.  Teachers will share schedules and ways to access lessons and activities. Please ensure the school’s office has the most up-to-date phone number and email address for your family.  Please also check the school blog: https://lomaverdewildcats.org/. Updates are usually posted on Sundays.

Create a working schedule for your household that supports academic time.  You may need to ask others in the house to be mindful of a child’s learning.  You may need to re-arrange some furniture or ask other members of the household to use quiet voices.  If possible, please do not have students working in a bedroom. Some parents have expressed that having a headset or earpods with a microphone helps their child interact with focus in the live sessions.

Be healthy during distance learning.  Take breaks throughout the day for movement.  Students should drink water, eat a nutritious snack, use the bathroom, and stretch at breaks, as well as eat lunch at lunch time.  Promote physical activity and health.  Provide time for your child to do activities that are “off screen.”

Respect the privacy and learning of others.  Students and guardians/parents should not record (neither video, nor audio) or take photos/screenshots of live sessions or others in distance learning.  Online tools, such as video chats and messages, should only be used as directed by teachers and staff.

In addition, your child’s teacher may have other norms and guidelines to ensure student safety and privacy for all students.

Annual Parental Notification

Annual State and federal laws require that school districts notify parents/guardians of minor pupils of their parental rights (California Education Code Section 48980). Please see the district page regarding more information about this legal notification: LINK to Parental Notification

Summer Learning Camp

A small number of students per grade level were invited to attend a virtual, online Summer Learning Camp (SLC). This camp will be during the hours of 8:00-11:30 and held daily Monday through Friday from August 10, 2020 to August 21, 2020. This program will incorporate daily one-on-one instruction and small group intervention with teachers online.

Summer Learning Camp will provide instruction in reading and mathematics to students who may benefit from additional intervention. Each child’s individual literacy skills and numeracy skills will be assessed and addressed during this ten-day camp. This experience is intended for a limited number of students: Only those students needing additional support in reading foundational skills and mathematics will be invited to attend.

We are excited to offer this virtual Summer Learning Camp next week!

Recovery Intersession

The Special Education and Pupil Services Department is also offering a Recovery Intersession for all Special Education students. This is another individualized, online opportunity for invited students. A highlight of this program will be additional small group and one-on-one instruction tailored for students’ needs.

The school day will mirror that of the Summer Learning Camp and be 3 hours and 30 minutes from 8:00-11:30 and held daily, Monday through Friday, from August 10, 2020 to August 21, 2020. Since this special opportunity is not part of a child’s IEP, transportation will not be provided, and the school will not hold IEP meetings or conduct IEP assessments. Again, this program is intended for students with IEPs and is available by invite only.

Sleepy Students?

How many hours of sleep does your child receive each night? While each individual child has different sleep needs, children in elementary and middle school (ages 6 to 12), should get between 9 and 12 hours of sleep each night. In fact some scientific studies have shown that students who go to by by 8 pm every night are more successful than those who go to bed at 9 pm! Ensuring that your child goes to bed at a reasonable hour will set them up for success for managing stress and being successful in school.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) supports these sleep guidelines and encourages parents to make sure their children develop good sleep habits right from the start.

  • Make sufficient sleep a family priority. Understand the importance of getting enough sleep and how sleep affects the overall health of you and your children. Remember that you are a role model to your child; set a good example. Staying up all night with your teen to edit his or her paper or pulling an all-nighter for work yourself isn’t really sending the right message. Making sleep a priority for yourself shows your children that it’s part of living a healthy lifestyle—like eating right and exercising regularly.
  • Keep to a regular daily routine. The same waking time, meal times, nap time, and play times will help your child feel secure and comfortable, and help with a smooth bedtime. For young children, it helps to start early with a bedtime routine such as brush, book, bed. Make sure the sleep routines you use can be used anywhere, so you can help your child get to sleep wherever you may be.
  • Be active during the day. Make sure your kids have interesting and varied activities during the day, including physical activity and fresh air. See Energy Out: Daily Physical Activity Recommendations for more information.
  • Monitor screen time. The AAP recommends keeping all screens—TVs, computers, laptops, tablets, and phones out of children’s bedrooms, especially at night. To prevent sleep disruption, turn off all screens at least 60 minutes/1 hour before bedtime.  Create a Family Media Use Plan and set boundaries about use before bedtime.​
  • Create a sleep-supportive and safe bedroom and home environment. Dim the lights prior to bedtime and control the temperature in the home. Don’t fill up your child’s bed with toys. Keep your child’s bed a place to sleep, rather than a place to play. One or two things—a favorite doll or bear, a security blanket—are okay and can help ease separation anxietySee Suitable Sleeping Sites for more information specifically for babies under 12 months of age.
  • Realize that teens require more sleep, not less. sleep-wake cycles begin to shift up to two hours later at the start of puberty. At the same time, most high schools require students to get to school earlier and earlier. The AAP has been advocating for middle and high schools delay the start of class to 8:30 a.m. or later. It is important that parents and local school boards work together to implement high school start times that allow teens to get the healthy sleep they need. See the AAP policy statement, School Start Times for Adolescents, for more information.
  • Don’t put your baby to bed with a bottle of juice, milk, or formula. Water is okay. Anything other than water in the bottle can cause baby bottle tooth decay. Feed or nurse your baby, and then put him or her down to sleep.
  • Don’t start giving solids before about 6 months of ageStarting solid food sooner will not help your baby sleep through the night. In fact, if you give your baby solids before their system can digest them, he or she may sleep worse because of a tummy ache.
  • Avoid overscheduling. In addition to homework, many children today have scheduled evening activities (i.e., sports games, lessons, appointments, etc.) that pose challenges to getting a good night’s sleep. Take time to wind down and give your children the downtime that they need.
  • Learn to recognize sleep problems. The most common sleep problems in children include difficulty falling asleep, nighttime awakenings, snoring, stalling and resisting going to bed, sleep apnea, and loud or heavy breathing while sleeping.
  • Talk to your child’s teacher or child care provider about your child’s alertness during the day. Sleep problems may manifest in the daytime, too. A child with not enough, or poor quality sleep may have difficulty paying attention or “zoning out” in school. Let your child’s teacher know that you want to be made aware of any reports of your child falling asleep in school, as well as any learning or behavior problems.
  • Talk to your child’s pediatrician about sleep. Discuss your child’s sleep habits and problems with your pediatrician, as most sleep problems are easily treated. He or she may ask you to keep a sleep log or have additional suggestions to improving your child’s sleep habits.

SCHOOL YEAR TO START IN DISTANCE LEARNING MODEL

Dr. Francisco Escobedo, Superintendent of CVESD

Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff Members,

I hope your summer is off to a great start and that your families remain healthy and safe. Since March, our community has stood together to combat the COVID-19 pandemic by staying home. This time with family reminds me that “Education Starts in the Home.” And given today’s reality, so does safety. Last year, our theme was “Nurturing Relationships Through Grit” and our staff, students and community persevered throughout a difficult period completing the school year in previously unimagined ways. For the coming school year, our theme calls on our community again by “Nurturing Relationships Through Greatness.”

Since our schools closed on March 13, 2020, the Chula Vista Elementary School District (CVESD) staff supported our students and community through many initiatives. Child Nutrition Services team members provided food service to our families in need. District teachers adapted education to provide distance learning to finish the 2019-20 school year while providing meaningful social emotional support for our students. I am so thankful for the professionalism and effort provided by our employees!

We are anxious to bring students and staff back to school for in-person instruction, but we must do so in a safe manner. Reopening campuses requires a great deal of planning and preparation, and many expenses that would not have been necessary under normal circumstances.

When the 2020-21 school year begins on August 31, it will be in a distance learning format. We will continue to work towards transitioning to in-person instruction but will only do so when guidance from local health officials supports a safe transition back to learning on site in classrooms. We know that many parents, students, staff, and community members are disappointed by this decision and we understand that this will complicate many individual family situations.

When students return to campus for in-person instruction, learning will look much different than previous years because of new health and safety measures. With safety goals always in mind, our leadership team, teachers, bargaining group representatives, parents, and community members are actively collaborating on a school reopening plan that will guide us on how to safely reopen our 46 campuses. At the suggestion of Board Members and a request from Board President Armando Farías, a Task Force on Reopening Schools was established to help us gather input and suggestions on guidelines and protocols in order to provide a strong continuity of learning for our students.

Even though the 2020-21 school year will begin with distance learning, it is important to know that our District will continue developing plans to transition into either a hybrid learning model; which is a combination of in-person instruction and distance learning, or into a full in-person instructional model. In fact, there are three learning models CVESD could possibly offer during the 2020-21 school year, which are:

  • Distance Learning: During High Risk Level
    • 100% of the learning occurs while the teacher and the student are in different locations.
    • Includes many new components such as daily live interaction with the teacher, and instruction that is aligned to grade level standards, provided at a level of quality and intellectual challenge substantially equivalent to in-person instruction.
    • Other criteria for delivering instruction in a distance learning model has been outlined in Assembly Bill 77, which also includes a requirement for a minimum number of daily instructional minutes, depending on the student’s grade level.
  • Hybrid Learning: During Medium Risk Level
    • A combination of in-person and distance learning. There are many variations of what a hybrid model could look like. Hybrid instructional scenarios would be designed to reduce the number of students on campus up to 50%.
    • 100% distance learning would also be an option offered to students who feel safer learning at home.
  • In-person Instruction: During Low Risk Level
    • 100% of the learning occurs at school, in the classroom with the teacher. Distancing norms and safety protocols would be in place.
    • 100% distance learning would also be an option offered to students who feel safer learning at home.

If at any point in the school year, conditions worsen and Public Health orders the closure of schools, CVESD will be prepared to move back into a distance learning or hybrid model at any time.

Again, all students will start the coming school year in the 100% Distance Learning model. To address circumstances in which families cannot sustain 100% distance learning at home, and have no other option other than to send students to school for the entire school day, CVESD will need to be advised in advance by the parents/guardians. We are actively exploring childcare options for families who must have students in school full time.

Once it is safe to transition into a hybrid model or an in-person instructional model, CVESD will need to determine how many students would prefer to remain in a 100% distance learning model. Therefore, on Friday, July 17, 2020, the District will send registration information to families so that they may choose the educational option that best fits their needs and comfort level.

In addition to the above options, the District is working to develop enrichment materials for all of our students to reduce any lost education opportunities during this health emergency. For parents who are concerned about the impacts of the virus on their student(s), we hope the distance learning model provides a level of comfort. We know that the process of returning to school while adapting to either in-person or online instruction, along with a host of new procedures, will be challenging for everyone in our school communities. But, as we have done throughout this ordeal, we will work together, persevere, and ensure our students are supported in every way possible.

When schools do reopen their doors, up-to-date safety protocols set forth by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will be in place. Guidelines and protocols adapt frequently based on the status of the local community. Based on what is known at this time:

  • Students are fully expected to wear face coverings; employees are required to wear face coverings. We plan to provide supervised breaks and outdoor time where students can temporarily remove their masks.
  • Handwashing and hygiene will be regularly enforced.
  • Daily disinfection of classrooms will occur.
  • Daily health screenings and temperature checks will occur.
  • Physical distancing will be in place within the classroom to the extent possible and following state/local guidelines.

Between now and the beginning of the school year, the District will be communicating frequently. Additional information on changes to our school environment will be shared with you prior to the start of school.

I want to reiterate the pride I have for our community and its response to the ongoing epidemic. The events that began to unfold in March and have continued have created enormous challenges and we as a school district are here to help support our families, staff, and community during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D.
Superintendent

 

El ciclo escolar comenzará con el modelo de educación a distancia

Dr. Francisco Escobedo, Superintendente del distrito

Estimados padres/tutores y personal,

Espero que hayan tenido un gran comienzo de verano y que sus familias estén sanas y seguras. Desde marzo, nuestra comunidad se ha unido para combatir la pandemia de COVID-19 al quedarse en casa. Este tiempo con la familia me recuerda que “La educación comienza en el hogar”. Y dada la realidad de hoy, así es también con la seguridad. El año pasado, nuestro lema fue “Cultivar relaciones a través de la perseverancia y determinación” y nuestro personal, estudiantes y la comunidad perseveraron durante un período difícil para completar el ciclo escolar de maneras previamente inimaginables. Para el próximo ciclo escolar, nuestro lema llama nuevamente a nuestra comunidad a “Cultivar las relaciones a través de la excelencia”.

Desde que nuestras escuelas cerraron el 13 de marzo de 2020, el personal del Distrito de Escuelas Primarias de Chula Vista (CVESD) apoyó a nuestros estudiantes y a la comunidad a través de muchas iniciativas. Los miembros del equipo de Servicios de Nutrición Infantil brindaron servicio de alimentos a nuestras familias necesitadas. Los maestros del distrito adaptaron la enseñanza para proporcionar educación a distancia para terminar el ciclo escolar 2019-20 mientras brindaban un significativo apoyo social y emocional para nuestros estudiantes. ¡Estoy muy agradecido por el profesionalismo y el esfuerzo brindado por nuestros empleados!

Estamos ansiosos por traer a los estudiantes y al personal de regreso a la escuela para recibir instrucción en persona, pero debemos hacerlo de manera segura. La reapertura de los planteles requiere una gran cantidad de planificación y preparación, además de muchos gastos que no habrían sido necesarios en circunstancias normales.

Cuando comience el ciclo escolar 2020-21 el 31 de agosto, será en el formato de la educación a distancia. Continuaremos trabajando para hacer la transición a la instrucción en persona, pero lo haremos sólo si la asesoría de los funcionarios de salud pública respalda una transición segura de regreso a la enseñanza en los salones de clase. Sabemos que muchos padres, estudiantes, personal y miembros de la comunidad están decepcionados por esta decisión y comprendemos que esto complicará la situación individual de muchas familias.

Cuando los estudiantes regresen al plantel para la instrucción en persona, la enseñanza será muy diferente que en los años anteriores debido a las nuevas medidas de salud y seguridad. Teniendo siempre en mente los objetivos de seguridad, nuestro equipo de líderes, maestros, representantes de los grupos de negociación, padres y miembros de la comunidad están colaborando activamente para un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que nos proporcione orientación sobre cómo reabrir seguramente nuestros 46 planteles. Bajo la sugerencia de los miembros de la Mesa Directiva y una petición del Presidente de la Mesa Directiva, Armando Farías, se estableció un Comité de Reapertura de las Escuelas (Task Force) para ayudarnos a recopilar opiniones y sugerencias sobre los lineamientos y protocolos con el fin de proporcionar una fuerte continuidad de aprendizaje para nuestros estudiantes.

Aunque el ciclo escolar 2020-21 comenzará con la educación a distancia, es importante saber que nuestro Distrito continuará desarrollando planes para hacer la transición ya sea a un modelo híbrido de enseñanza, el cual es una combinación de instrucción en persona y educación a distancia, o a un modelo de instrucción totalmente en persona. De hecho, existen tres modelos de enseñanza que CVESD posiblemente pueda ofrecer durante el ciclo escolar 202-2021, que son:

  • Educación a Distancia:  Durante nivel de alto riesgo
    • 100% de la enseñanza ocurre mientras el maestro y el estudiante están en diferentes ubicaciones.
    • Incluye muchos componentes nuevos, como la interacción diaria y en vivo con el maestro e instrucción alineada a los estándares de nivel de grado, proporcionada a un nivel de calidad y desafío intelectual substancialmente equivalente a la instrucción en persona.
    • Otros criterios para proporcionar la instrucción bajo el modelo de la educación a distancia se indican en el proyecto de ley 77 de la asamblea legislativa, la cual también incluye el requerimiento de la cantidad mínima de minutos de instrucción, dependiendo del nivel de grado del estudiante.
  • Enseñanza Híbrida:  Durante nivel de riesgo medio
    • Una combinación de instrucción en persona y educación a distancia. Existen muchas variaciones de modelos híbridos. Los escenarios de instrucción híbrida son diseñados para reducir el número de alumnos en el plantel hasta un 50%.
    • También se ofrecerá la educación a distancia 100% para los estudiantes que se sienten más seguros aprendiendo desde sus hogares.
  • Instrucción en persona:  Durante nivel de bajo riesgo
    • 100% de la enseñanza ocurre en la escuela, dentro del salón de clases con el maestro. Estarán establecidas las normas de distanciamiento y los protocolos de seguridad.
    • También se ofrecerá la educación a distancia 100% para los estudiantes que se sienten más seguros aprendiendo desde sus hogares.

Si en algún momento del ciclo escolar las condiciones empeoran y el Departamento de Salud Pública ordena el cierre de las escuelas, CVESD estará preparado para volver al modelo de la educación a distancia o híbrida en cualquier momento.

Repetimos, todos los estudiantes comenzarán el siguiente ciclo escolar 100% con el modelo de la educación a distancia. Para abordar las circunstancias de familias que no pueden sostener en casa el modelo de 100% educación a distancia y no tienen otra opción más que enviar a sus alumnos a la escuela durante todo el día escolar, los padres/tutores deben notificar a CVESD con anticipación. Estamos explorando activamente las opciones de cuidado de niños para las familias que necesitan tener a sus estudiantes en la escuela por tiempo completo.

En cuanto sea seguro hacer la transición a un modelo híbrido o a un modelo de instrucción en persona, CVESD tendrá que determinar cuántos estudiantes prefieren permanecer en el modelo de 100% educación a distancia. Por lo tanto, el viernes, 17 de julio de 2020, el Distrito enviará información de inscripción a las familias para que puedan escoger la opción de educación que mejor satisface sus necesidades y nivel de confort.

Además de las opciones anteriores, el Distrito está trabajando para desarrollar material de enriquecimiento para todos nuestros estudiantes y reducir la pérdida de oportunidades de educación durante esta emergencia de salud. Para los padres que se preocupan por el impacto del virus en su(s) estudiante(s), esperamos que el modelo de la educación a distancia les proporcione un nivel de confort. Sabemos que el proceso de regreso a la escuela y tener que adaptarse, ya sea a la instrucción en persona o en línea, así como a una variedad de nuevos procedimientos, será desafiante para todos en nuestras comunidades escolares. Pero, como lo hemos hecho en el transcurso de esta adversidad, vamos a trabajar juntos, perseverar y asegurar que los estudiantes sean apoyados de cualquier manera posible.

Cuando las escuelas reabran sus puertas, los protocolos actualizados de seguridad establecidos por el Departamento de Salud Pública de California (CDPH) se pondrán en práctica. Los lineamientos y protocolos se adaptan frecuentemente según el estatus de la comunidad local. En base a lo que se sabe en este momento:

•           La expectativa plena es que los estudiantes usen cubre bocas o careta; se requiere que los empleados usen cubre bocas o careta. Planeamos proporcionar descansos supervisados y tiempo afuera donde los estudiantes puedan quitarse temporalmente el cubre bocas o careta.

•           Se reforzará regularmente el lavado de manos e higiene.

•           Los salones de clase se desinfectarán diariamente.

•           Habrá revisiones diarias de salud y temperatura.

•           Estará establecido el distanciamiento físico dentro del salón de clases en la medida de lo posible en cumplimiento de los lineamientos estatales/locales.

De ahora hasta el principio del ciclo escolar, el Distrito estará en comunicación frecuente. Cualquier información adicional sobre cambios a nuestro entorno escolar será compartida con ustedes antes del comienzo de la escuela.

Quiero reiterar el orgullo que siento por nuestra comunidad y su respuesta a la epidemia en curso. Los eventos que comenzaron en marzo y han continuado, han creado enormes desafíos y nosotros, como distrito escolar estamos aquí para ayudar a apoyar a nuestras familias, personal y comunidad durante este tiempo difícil.

Cordialmente,

Dr. Francisco Escobedo

Superintendente

Message From the Superintendent 6/9/2020

 

 

Message from the SuperintendentYour Grit Inspires Us!

Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff Members:

As we see the 2019-20 school year come to a close, I want to thank you and your children for your flexibility and adaptability as we quickly transitioned to distance learning and instruction. Everyone showed a true level of grit that was both inspiring and uplifting. Congratulations on a successful school year and best of luck to those moving on to the next stage of their educational pursuits.

Our attention turns now to the work of finalizing plans for the 2020-21 school session. At this time, we have targeted Monday, August 31, as the proposed date that school will begin. While we traditionally align our calendar with the Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD), we also understand that the challenges and considerations regarding safely reopening schools and providing meaningful instruction via distance learning are different for elementary schools and secondary schools. It is our intention to align our future calendars with SUHSD once this pandemic is over.

The direction our reopening takes will depend on several important pieces: implementing school guidance and public health recommendations, countywide efforts to ensure COVID-19 is under control and cases are on the way down, progress along the Governor’s multi-phased roadmap for ending the stay-at-home order, guidance from the newly released Guidebook for the Safe Reopening of California’s Public Schools, and, just as importantly, input from our stakeholder groups.

Survey Says…

Recently, the Chula Vista Elementary School District reached out to our community and asked for input about the coming school year and the design of school reopenings. Over 9,000 responses were received and that input has been critical to our work in crafting our plan for teaching and learning. Three specific results are worth noting.

When surveyed about potential learning models, our families indicated:

  • 36% would prefer on-site instruction
  • 19% would prefer virtual school
  • 55% would prefer some form of blended learning model.

During the summer, our staff will create both online virtual school as well as live sessions to help recover lost learning. Starting July 15, we will send an update every two weeks regarding the status of these learning platforms. We want to keep you as informed and up to date as possible so that we start the new school year off on the right foot.

No matter what form instruction and learning take in the coming school year, CVESD remains committed to protecting the health and safety of our entire school communities. Getting back to school is critically important, as you know, but doing so responsibly and with a focus on preventing the spread of this virus is paramount.

Challenging Times

There is no doubt we find ourselves in challenging times and I would be remiss if I did not also comment on the events of the last few weeks with regard to social justice, protesting of police brutality, and demands for significant and meaningful change in our country. As protests continued for another weekend, I concentrated on listening. I listened to African-American school leaders in our District. I listened to African-American colleagues and friends. I also listened to teachers, staff members and school psychologists who were not African-American, as they shared with me their horror in watching video capturing the death of a bound George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. This was the latest in a string of killings and racial injustices targeting black Americans.

Like those from all walks of life and many sectors of industry, we as a District proudly acknowledge Black Lives Matter.

Many of our families are deeply hurting right now. We as educators and members of the larger community have a moral obligation to create safe spaces for discussion and learning so that we don’t miss the lesson in these recent events. We need to listen to the voices crying out for change and understanding. We need to listen to our children’s questions about the difficult images they are seeing on their screens. Together, we need to take action and assist in the process of developing strategies that will make a difference.

Our students need us now more than ever. They need guidance that is informed, authentic, and filled with compassion and understanding. Sometimes, additional resources can be a bridge when we don’t feel fully equipped to assist our young people. Two valuable resources you might refer to come from our Multi-Tiered Systems of Support Director and our District’s social workers, as well as the San Diego County Office of Education. These are excellent resources that may assist in facilitating conversations between students and families.

I am hopeful we are ready to move forward as a District, a community, and a nation united in the belief that we can and will do better. Only then can we live up to our belief that each and every child is an individual of great worth.

Sincerely,

Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D.
Superintendent

We Need Your Input: Parent Survey on Distance Learning Plan and School Reopening

Please take this brief, yet important survey to help guide our school and district as we consider staffing needs and models for teaching next year whether physically in person in a classroom, online in a virtual classroom, or a combination of both. The purpose of this survey is to measure you and your child’s experience this 2019-20 academic year, and to assist schools in planning for the 2020-21 school year. Parents/guardians of current students will also be asked about interest in continuing their student’s education in CVESD for grades 7 and 8. The survey takes just a few minutes.   Take Survey

The Wildcat Way April 27 – May 1, 2020

the-history-of-distance-learning-infographic

Greetings, Loma Verde Wildcat Families!

As we begin Week 3 of distance learning, we trust that you’ve started to establish structures and routines to support learning at home.  With our students using technology more than ever before, challenges will obviously occur.  Remember to take deep breaths!  Our team of dedicated teachers will be here to assist you along the way, as we’re all in this together.

At the beginning of this school year, each teacher taught a unit of study regarding digital citizenship.  Our team will continue to remind students of expected norms regarding digital safety.  To the extent possible, we also ask parents to monitor the online activity of your child.

Below are some great free resources for parents to support online learning and digital citizenship.

Message from the Superintendent

 

Click below for the latest newsletter from our Superintendent, Dr. Escobedo. Superintendent Newsletter 4 10 20

 

Hello Loma Verde Families,

I hope this finds you well. This past week, our team has been working diligently to make connections with our students and preparing for Distance Learning to begin this week.  If you have not heard from your child’s teacher, it means that we have encountered a non-working phone number or email.  If you have not heard from your teacher, be sure to email me at bree.watson@cvesd.org.

We have encountered a number of questions and are doing our best to address them in a timely manner. Below, please find some Frequently Asked Questions.

Question:  When will the school office reopen?  When will the district office reopen?

A:  Chula Vista Elementary School District (CVESD) facilities and campuses will remain closed for the remainder of the school year unless health officials determine it is safe to reopen. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Governor have each recommended closing school facilities for the remainder of the school year out of concerns and needs for ongoing social distancing.

At the moment, there is no scheduled date to reopen schools.  Please visit www.cvesd.org for the most up-to-date information regarding the closure during the COVID-19   Please note that all staff have been asked to work from home and that the school office remains closed.  Emailing your child’s teacher or using Class Dojo to message them is the best way to communicate with the school.

Question: When will my child (Gr. 3 – 6) receive a device?

A: There is no date of when or if students will be distributed devices. Other districts have moved ahead with this initiative, however, at this time our district has opted to gather more data about current technology supports in the home. This data collection includes access to devices and broadband speed before determining if a roll-out of devices is the best option or solution for our students to access Distance Learning.

Connectivity at home is as important as the device(s) in the home. There is a huge difference between issuing a laptop, and then being able to use it at home. Creating an equitable learning environment is critical for our students to learn. If we do issue devices, or printed packets for that matter, it will likely occur after the next two weeks. Currently, public health officials say sheltering in place is critical to stem a predicted surge in coronavirus cases.

Please see the link below for more information about this topic from our Superintendent. Superintendent Message Click Here

Question: My child does not have access to a device, how can they participate in Distance Learning?

A: Distance learning means that learning opportunities are provided to students while the teacher and the student are in different locations (i.e., outside the traditional classroom environment). Distance learning may include student-instructor interaction through the use of a computer and/or telecommunications technology to deliver instruction and check-in time. This may include video or audio instruction in which the primary mode of communication between the student and instructor is on-line interaction, instructional television, video, or other instruction that relies on printed materials (“packets”).

Our teachers are doing their best to be creative and come up with ideas beyond relying on technology to participate in Distance Learning. Please make sure to communicate your current situation with your teachers, so that they can better understand and support your child during this new learning time.

Question: Is the District developing a plan to increase broadband access for our learning community?

A: CVESD is working in partnership with the City of Chula Vista and the Classroom of the Future Foundation for possible broadband expansion, such as incorporating hotspots in our neediest neighborhoods. There are a number of service providers. Click here for a list of providers.  For example, effective Monday, March 16, Cox Communications began providing:

  • Limited-time, first two months free of Connect2Compete service, $9.95/month thereafter. Cox also has increased Connect2Compete speeds to 50 mbps.
  • Until May 15, 2020, we are providing phone and remote desktop support through Cox Complete Care at no charge to provide peace of mind and ease for technology needs
  • Resources for discounted, refurbished equipment through its association with PCs for People.  See Cox Communication’s website for more information.

We plan to continue to advocate for plan upgrades (increased bandwidth) to support the needs of students at home during this unprecedented crisis.

Question: Is there a place where I can purchase an affordable device?

A: Yes. https://www.cox.com/residential/internet/connect2compete/low-cost-computer.html

Question: Is there a CVESD “Parent Helpline” for Office 365 and Teams?

A: Our District has established a Parent Helpline to provide technical support with Microsoft Office 365 and Teams, as well as assistance for District-adopted online programs (i.e. Achieve 3000). Office hours are Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Parents may call if they need support with these tools and an IT team member will assist them. You may need to leave a message during peak times but please be reassured that someone will contact you as soon as possible. The parent helpline number is 619-409-6638.

Student-Internet-Use-Guidelines Reminder

Question: My child left his/ her glasses at school. May I get them?

A: Yes. Please email bree.watson@cvesd.org for more information. Note that I am working remotely; so I will do my best to respond in a timely manner.

Question: My child has medication at school. Do I need to pick it up?

A: No. You can leave the medication at school until next year or until when the office reopens.  Again, for the health and safety of our entire school community, we are asking all to follow the directives of County and State Health Officials and continue to shelter-in-place.

Question: My child has medication at school and I need access to my child’s prescription. May I pick it up?

A: Yes. Please contact our nurse, Isla Morris, at isla.morris@cvesd.org for more information. Please note that Nurse Isla is working remotely, so she will do her best to respond in a timely manner.

 Question:  Will the SSC meetings still continue during the school closure?

A:  Yes, these meetings will occur online and be accessible to the public via an email link.  Please contact our school secretary, Elsa Estrada at elsa.estrada@cvesd.org, for more information.  Please note that Ms. Estrada is also working remotely, so she will do her best to respond in a timely manner.

distance learning starts april 13

April 6, 2020

Dear Loma Verde Families,

Our team misses you greatly and hopes this finds you well.

During Quarter 4, due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic, CVESD will embark upon a distance learning instructional model for all students until further notice.  To view our District newsletter regarding distance learning and other related items, please CLICK HERE.

Loma Verde’s goal is to keep student learning alive and well until health officials determine that our school is safe to reopen.  This week (April 6 – 10), our teachers will be planning and preparing curriculum for distance learning instruction.  Teachers will not, however, assign academic work this week.  Distance learning for students will start, to the extent possible, on Monday, April 13.

This week, your child’s teacher will contact you by email or phone.  It’s important that you reply in a timely manner, as we need to assess the distance learning resources available at your home and confirm that all students are able to communicate with their teachers.

We’ll strive to provide your child with a quality education in a nurturing, virtual classroom environment during this last quarter of the school year.  Since distance learning is new for both teachers and students, I respectfully ask that you are patient with our instructional team.  Rest assured, we’ll work hard to support you and your child through this new model of learning.

Lastly, CVESD will not be distributing any digital devices (e.g., laptops) at this time.  However, our teachers will ensure that assignments will be flexible and equitable for all students.

As always, thank you for your partnership and support.  We look forward to the day we are back on campus together.  Please let your children know we miss them, and our staff is so excited to connect with them this week.

Warm regards,

Mrs. Bree Watson, Principal

Superintendent’s Update: Schools to Remain Closed Until Further Notice

Sent on Behalf of Superintendent Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D:

As many of you may have heard, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a statewide “shelter-in-place.” This latest directive aligns closely with actions taken earlier this week by our San Diego County officials, which means we will continue limiting gatherings to no more than 10 individuals and enforcing social distancing. This order by Governor Newsom will ensure all counties are following the same guidance to limit the spread and severity of COVID-19. The Chula Vista Elementary School District is comprised of staff, parents, students, and our community partners. As role models in our community, it is incumbent upon us to do our part.

In a unified effort to protect the health of students, staff and school communities, our District and other school districts countywide, in collaboration with the County Department of Public Health, made the collective decision to remain closed indefinitely. We will send you weekly updates while our schools are closed until further notice. We are taking a proactive and aggressive approach to maintain the health, safety and well-being of our schools and communities.

The Governor’s order does not change or impact the role of CVESD, which is considered essential, nor our duty to carry out the following essential services:

  • Meals being prepared and distributed to students
  • Any function associated with keeping the continuity of learning moving forward.

As we all adjust to a new reality for both our professional and personal lives, I wanted to provide a message of encouragement and support to you, our Chula Vista Elementary School District staff.  These are truly unprecedented times, and we have been called on to make tough decisions that affect each of us.  Please know, the Board, District Leadership Team, and bargaining groups are collaborating to make decisions with the health and safety of our community—students, families, and staff—as our top priority.

I want to thank you for your continued cooperation as we persevere through this unique situation.  We appreciate your willingness to follow our directives and your flexibility to adjust as new information necessitates a change in plans.

Despite the difficult circumstances, it is heartwarming to see the creative ways our teachers are delivering educational support. We are working with Chula Vista Educators (CVE) to establish a unique, innovative learning environment to continue our students’ academic and emotional growth. In addition, Chula Vista Classified Employees Organization (CVCEO) has been assisting us in finding new ways to keep essential District operations afloat.  At times like this, our community relies on us to showcase a sense of calm, grit, and professionalism.  We have done a great job of that thus far.  I want to especially thank Child Nutrition Services and Maintenance staff members for their heroic efforts in keeping students fed. Overall, thousands of meals were distributed each day of the week across our 46 schools. This was no small feat. Meal service is also continuing during Spring Break.

Together, we will get through this historic period of change, however long it may last. Rest assured we will continue to keep you updated as future decisions are confirmed.

Again, thank you for your ongoing support, flexibility, understanding, and grit.  Please remember to focus on remaining calm, keeping your family and loved ones safe, and practicing self-care as needed.  We will get through this together.

Sincerely,

Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D.

March 12 Safety Update

Dear Loma Verde Families and Friends,

Due to Governor Newsom’s announcement regarding canceling events involving 250 people or more,  I have made the decision to take extra precautions to protect our students and families. Please note that the Monday blacktop character assembly, ELAC Meeting, field trips, and ACE Awards scheduled for this week and next week have been canceled.

Our school is taking precautions in disinfecting desks, tables, and chairs.  We will continue to reviewed hand washing with all students and are reminding students to wash or sanitize throughout the day. Please help us by reminding your children not to share food.

In addition, we will be splitting up our students into smaller groups during lunch so they are not in such close proximity while eating. We will also ask our students to proceed to the classrooms at 7:55 to line up by their classroom doors rather than lining up on the blacktop.  Students should still participate in walking the track before school and eating breakfast at the tables if they are on campus between 7:15 and 7:55.  Students should not be in the hallways near the classrooms until after the bell rings at 7:55.

Please be sure to read the following update from the Superintendent.   Our district is working closely with the CDC as well as the California Department of Public Health.

Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you for your understanding.

Yours in safety,

Mrs. Bree Watson – Principal
