CVESD Reopening Playbook for Parents

Dear Parents/Guardians: 

We are pleased to announce the release of the Reopening Playbook for Parents. This document outlines our safe return to in-person instruction. Please review this “Parent Playbook” thoroughly by clicking here or copying and pasting this link into your web browser: https://indd.adobe.com/view/0476af62-e46a-44d1-9348-5fc8660c582b

As part of our agreement with Chula Vista Educators, which is the bargaining group that represents teachers, our District will reopen to in-person instruction starting with a “hybrid” instructional format—provided that all health and safety conditions are met. A key condition is that San Diego County return to the “red” tier as defined in the state’s tiered-level system. Our County is currently in the most restrictive “purple” tier. Our County will need to drop to an adjusted case rate of 7 or fewer new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people—for two consecutive weeks—before we can start in-person instruction. There is reason for optimism that a move to the red tier is on the horizon, based upon the downward trend in adjusted case rates. Once that occurs, parents and school staff will be provided two-weeks’ notice before the start of the first day of in-person school to ensure adequate preparation. Click here to see the San Diego County COVID-19 Case Dashboard.

Please note that the Governor’s updated guidance came out recently—months after we reached agreement with our teachers about a safe return to in-person instruction. Be reassured that our District is prepared for in-person instruction in a “hybrid” model with students attending either morning or afternoon sessions in order to minimize the number of individuals on campus at any one time. Parents also will have the option to keep their child(ren) in distance learning for the remainder of 2020-21 school year.

Testing – Anne Arundel County Department of Health

CVESD Safe! COVID-19 Testing

We are happy to announce that the next round of Antibody and Viral Testing for COVID-19 will take place before and after the Presidents’ Day weekend. In addition to students and their families, all staff members are invited to participate. Testing is voluntary and is scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (no appointments scheduled during 12-1 lunch break). The following schools/locations are hosting the program:  

  • Wednesday, February 17 @ Lauderbach Elementary, 390 Palomar Street, Chula Vista, 91911. 
  • Thursday, February 18 @ Finney Elementary, 3950 Byrd Street, Chula Vista, 92154. 

The antibody test consists of a light fingerprick; results as quickly as 15 minutes for those who stay around for their results.  The viral test is the shallow nose swab test, not the deep into the brain type; results available within three-to-four business days.    

Participants have the option of only doing one of the tests or both, and they are offered at no cost (covered through health insurance or reimbursable to testing provider Kahala Biosciences under the CARES Act for those who do not have insurance). 

Per employee requests, immediate family/household members are also eligible to participate in these testing opportunities. To schedule an appointment, please click here or cut and paste the following into your web browser: https://kahalabiosciences.com/cvesd-safe/    Thanks again for your support of CVESD Safe!, our voluntary testing and tracing program.

80 Loma Verde Students Received New Desks & Toys!

How to Tap the Power of 'Thank You'

Thank you to Martin Furniture for donating 80 new desks for students to have at home! We randomly selected 80 student names from 291 names submitted. Families picked up the desks and a toy donated from The Rock Church on Friday, December 18, 2020. If you were one of the lucky families to get a desk, please send us a picture with a thank you note or sign showing your child at their new desk to bree.watson@cvesd.org. We will share them with the Martin Furniture Company that made desks just for Loma Verde students.

Messages From the Superintendent

If you missed the Superintendent’s most recent Town Hall Meeting on December 17, 2020 you can view the recording here. Here is the Spanish version.

The Chula Vista Elementary School District’s staff—from principals to classroom teachers to facilities, gardeners, transportation and front office support—all are working together to ensure that teaching and learning can resume safely in person once COVID-19 rates improve. Our District has been busily preparing for in-person instruction in a “hybrid” instructional format—meaning a limited number of students return to school in cohorts that alternate with other student cohorts. We are “Ready for Students’ Return.” Click on the video link to hear about how we are preparing for students to return to campus learning: https://youtu.be/FTySt8UZipQ.

Governor’s Stay at Home Order Does Not Currently Impact Schools

Governor Gavin Newsom announced a plan to implement a ‘Regional Stay at Home Order’ that is based on Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity by region. What does this Stay at Home order mean? Bars, wineries, personal services, hair salons and the like would be temporarily closed for three weeks.  At this time, we do not anticipate this order will impact any school or district operations, but County officials are continuing to review the matter. Additional information may be coming from the County and the San Diego County Office of Education.  We will continue to provide updates on this school blog and Class Dojo as needed.

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.

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!

Hello Loma Verde Wildcats! Welcome to our Loma Verde School blog. This is the 8th week of school. We are continuing in distance learning format for our preschool through 6th grade students. Please read below for important information.

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.

If you were unable to view the Virtual Town Hall meeting from Monday with Superintendent Dr. Escobedo, you can access the recording by clicking here or paste the following into your browser: https://bit.ly/3lldFQi .

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conference - February 12, 2020 | Salem Hills High School

Parent-Teacher Conferences are on October 15-22. Students will only have 2 hours of live synchronous instruction during these days. Your child’s teacher will give you a more detailed schedule. Please sign up for a virtual conference to review your child’s progress, goals, and initial assessments in math and language arts. All meetings will occur virtually, as there are not visitors allowed on campus at this time.

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.

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

Image

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.

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

Childcare at Loma Verde

New Emergency Grants Now Available For Childcare Business Owners ...

Loma Verde will have childcare provided by the YMCA STRETCH program on site starting September 8. We understand that there are many families with childcare concerns, but we only have a limited number of spots (30) available. Families will be notified if they have been selected to receive childcare this week.

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

When the 2020-21 school year begins on August 31, it will be in a distance-learning format with no classes occurring at school sites. 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.

Messages from the Superintendent

 

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.

 

Census count continuesBE COUNTED – Our Schools Depend on it!

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
