Any family interested in STRETCH for 2021-2022 must fill out an application (even if you are currently enrolled in STRETCH or on the waiting list).

CVESD Virtual Academy enrolling now!

CVESD Virtual Academy Applications Due 5/31 by 5:00 PM

We are looking forward to bringing all of our staff members and students back for traditional in-person instruction for the 2021-22 school year, and we are also aware of parent interest in their children continuing in an online instructional model, similar to distance learning. A few weeks ago, a survey was sent to collect interest on this instructional model and many parents/guardians indicated they would like to explore this option.

The Chula Vista Elementary School District is excited to launch the CVESD Virtual Academy during the 2021-2022 school year. The CVESD Virtual Academy will provide students in Chula Vista with an independent study option as an alternative instructional strategy to meet and enhance their individual student strengths, needs, and learning styles.

The CVESD Virtual Academy is a voluntary program and parents/guardians must apply for enrollment during the application window. Applications to the CVESD Virtual Academy must be submitted online from May 25th through May 31st at 5 PM. For a detailed Parent Overview on the Virtual Academy as well as Frequently Asked Questions, please click here to access the documents.

Click here to apply to the CVESD Virtual Academy from May 25th – 31st.

Thank You Loma Verde Families!

Thank you Loma Verde Families!

We are so grateful for our Loma Verde community! Thank you so much for showing us abundant appreciation last week! We loved all the flowers, treats, kind notes, gift cards, food donations and love! We have the best families at Loma Verde! Thank you for all the appreciation and love!

District Testing – Continues This Week!

CVESD Local Measures Testing continues through June 4 for grades TK-6. K-6th grade will take iReady. TK-2nd will take Smarty Ants, and 2nd-6th grade will take Achieve3000 Level Set. Those students in person will take their tests at school and those in Distance Learning will be taking it with their teacher online. These local measures are the only tests your child will be taking. As previously announced, State Testing has been cancelled this year. Please be sure your child gets a good night’s sleep as well as eats a healthy breakfast. It is important to remember not to help your child with any answers. These tests help us determine what your child knows, and where to begin next year when we are all back together!

Residency Verification – Begins June 1st

Residency verification will take place online this year. All students returning to any school in the Chula Vista Elementary School District for the 2021/22 school year are required to show proof of residency at their school of attendance before the start of school in order for their child’s name to be placed on a class list. If you have moved out of our area, and would like to continue at Loma Verde Elementary, you must contact the office to receive a Zone Transfer document. You will be receiving an email that will contain a unique “Snap Code” for each of your children enrolled at Loma Verde and a link to the website where you will be able to update information for your child and upload your residency for the 21/22 school year. You will only receive and email if you have a valid email on file at Loma Verde. If your email has recently changed, or if you do not receive emails from the district, please call the office to update your information: 619-420-3940. We will begin sending the “Snap Codes” the week of June 1st. Please make sure to check your emails so that you may complete this promptly. If you have not received your email by June 11th, please contact the school office.

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

CVESD Honors Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Throughout the month of May, the Chula Vista Elementary School District will spotlight and celebrate the diverse communities that make up the Asian/Asian American/Pacific Islander communities as part of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. With the recent rise in Anti-Asian rhetoric and hate crimes in our country, we want to share insight and stories from and about Asian Americans in an educational way. Please see the link below for more information and discuss the importance of celebrating and honoring differences in our community with your children.

Dear Loma Verde Elementary Families and Friends,
Please be sure to read this important message, and respond to the survey in the link regarding the 2021-22 school year. Thank you!

Plan for Next School Year: In-Person Instruction as We Explore a ‘Virtual Academy’ Option

Dear Parent/Guardian:

As you may know, students in the Chula Vista Elementary School District are scheduled to start the next school year on Wednesday, July 21. It is our intention to start the 2021-22 academic year with full-day, in-person instruction for five days a week. Governor Gavin Newsom has announced that the state is preparing for a full reopening of California’s economy on June 15—ending the “tier” system of restrictions that also had impacted schools. I do expect that a number of safety and cleaning protocols we currently have in place will continue in alignment with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Please understand that CDC’s guidance can change rapidly, as we have witnessed throughout the pandemic. We will inform you of any new developments.

It is also important to note that the distance learning instructional format is scheduled to expire at the end of the current 2020-21 school year, in accordance with California law.

While we look forward to bringing all of our staff members and students back for traditional in-person instruction for the 2021-22 school year, we are aware of parent interest in their children continuing in an online instructional model, similar to distance learning. In order to provide such an educational option for our students/families, the District is exploring the development of a virtual school/online academy. Such a platform will provide live instruction in real time with teachers being able to provide instant feedback as well as online opportunities where students complete assignments on their own time.

We will survey parents to determine the level of interest in this alternative to traditional in-person instruction. A preliminary proposal envisions a Districtwide “virtual academy” that would not necessarily be tied to or associated with a student’s school of residence. I welcome any of your comments or novel ideas regarding this option. Please click on this link to access the survey, which will remain open until May 10.

To reiterate, it is our intention to offer full-time, in-person instruction while also offering a virtual academy model for those who prefer this option to in-person instruction.

Sincerely,

Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D.
Superintendent


Apreciables padres y tutores:

Como se habrán enterado, los estudiantes del Distrito de Escuelas Primarias de Chula Vista están programados para comenzar el próximo ciclo escolar el miércoles, 21 de julio. Es nuestra intención comenzar el año académico 2021-22 con instrucción en persona de día completo los cinco días de la semana. El Gobernador Gavin Newson ha anunciado que el estado se está preparando para la reapertura total de la economía de California el 15 de junio, poniendo fin al sistema de restricciones de “niveles” que también ha afectado a las escuelas. Espero que la serie de protocolos de seguridad y limpieza que actualmente tenemos en vigor continúen alineados con las recomendaciones de los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC). Por favor comprenda que las pautas de CDC pueden cambiar rápidamente, tal como lo hemos atestiguado durante la pandemia. Los mantendremos informados de cualquier novedad.

También es importante tener en cuenta que el formato de instrucción de educación a distancia está programado para terminar al final del ciclo escolar actual 2020-21, de conformidad con la ley de California.

Mientras esperamos tener a todos nuestros miembros del personal y estudiantes de regreso a la tradicional instrucción en persona para el ciclo escolar 2021-22, estamos conscientes del interés de los padres en que sus hijos continúen en un modelo de instrucción en línea, similar a la educación a distancia. Con el fin de proporcionar una opción educativa para nuestros estudiantes y familias, el Distrito está explorando el desarrollo de una escuela/academia virtual. Dicha plataforma proporcionará instrucción en vivo en tiempo real y los maestros podrán brindar retroalimentación instantánea, así como oportunidades en línea donde los estudiantes completarán las tareas en su propio tiempo.

Enviaremos una encuesta para determinar el nivel de interés de esta alternativa a la instrucción tradicional en persona. Una propuesta preliminar visualiza una “academia virtual” en todo el Distrito que no necesariamente estará vinculada o asociada con la escuela de residencia del estudiante. Agradezco sus comentarios o ideas novedosas con respecto a esta opción. Favor de hacer clic en el enlace para accesar a la encuesta, que permanecerá abierta hasta el 10 de mayo.

Enfatizamos, es nuestra intención ofrecer instrucción en persona de tiempo completo y al mismo tiempo ofrecer un modelo de academia virtual para aquellos que prefieran esta opción en lugar de la instrucción en persona.

Atentamente,

Dr. Francisco Escobedo
Superintendente

Our Wildcats continue to participate in VAPA instruction every other week. Our next VAPA week at Loma Verde is 5/3-5/7.

We want to remind all families that regardless of the instructional model a child is placed in, school begins at 8:00 AM. Students in the afternoon cohort are expected to complete asynchronous learning in the morning as part of the requirements of the state of California as mandated by AB 77 and SB 98.

Our VAPA schedules have changed due to our transition to hybrid instruction. Students will participate in VAPA at times that do not conflict with in-person instruction. For example, if your child attends in-person classes in the PM cohort, they will participate in VAPA during the morning. Please note that the times of VAPA classes may change depending on the week, but your child’s teacher is able to share those details with you and the meeting information is on your child’s Teams calendar.

Students must attend VAPA classes and attendance is taken during art, music, and PE.

COVID-19 Testing on Campus

Image result for covid testing

You should have received (through email and/or text message) information on how to register for your child to get tested for COVID-19 at our school site. If you have misplaced the email or link, another was sent to you on Friday, April 16th around 11:00 AM. You will not need to make an appointment for testing at our school sites. Our schools will provide on-demand testing, which means that we are accepting “walk-ins”—no appointments are necessary. Here is important information on the CVESD COVID-19 Testing Program:

• Testing will occur at Loma Verde Elementary School campus on the following days: May 5, 19, and June 2.

• On these days, testing will occur from 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM, with no testing from 12:30-1:00 PM due to staff lunch times.

• If your student is experiencing symptoms, we highly recommend getting a PCR test at a free County facility or with a medical provider, and not reporting to the school for the antigen test. Unfortunately, the antigen tests used by CVESD cannot be used for return to work or school, per the County’s Decisions Symptom TreeThe antigen testing program is for surveillance purposes, in order to quickly determine if individuals are positive and remove such individuals and their close contacts from campus as soon as possible. Contact our school health office for more information or discuss your child’s symptoms.

• At this time, we can only test staff and CVESD students. No family members are able test at this time.

• You do not need to be with your child in order for your child to test under our program; however, if your child walks up to the testing location, we will not be able to test them unless you have signed the on-line consent form at the link you are provided. We highly recommend that you accompany your child to the testing location.

• Links that are sent to you are personalized for your specific student and shouldn’t be shared with others.

• If you have trouble registering/providing consent for your child through the link, please call the district office at (619) 425-9600 and speak to Sherry Stone at ext. 1327 or Theresa Fletcher at ext. 1027 or visit the testing staff on-site at our school and they will be able to help register and test your child during your visit.

The Wildcat Way – April 19-23, 2021 (Week #30)

Troy City Schools to remain on hybrid learning for at least 2 weeks after  holidays - TROY JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL

We had a fantastic first week of hybrid learning last week! 51% (302 students) preschool through 6th-grade students are participating in our in-person, hybrid learning. Thank you to our staff, parents, and students for making the week such a success! Our Wildcats did an incredible job following our new procedures and protocols. We appreciate all our parents helping ensure a smooth transition to hybrid learning. Everyone has done a great job following our drop-off and pick-up procedures. Thank you for remembering to stay in your cars and pull forward as the cars ahead move. The lines have moved quickly each day! We are able to complete the ingress and egress. procedures in less than ten minutes.

Hybrid parents: Please make sure your child eats BEFORE coming to school. They will not be eating at school. Also, please send a labeled water bottle with your child.

The (second) first week back for Loma Verde Elementary Hybrid Wildcats was a fun adventure! Take a peek into the week! Video Link: https://safeshare.tv/x/5sar3Y0Wv3A

Our WIldcats will participate in VAPA instruction this week! Our VAPA schedules have changed due to our transition to hybrid instruction. Students will participate in VAPA at times that do not conflict with in-person instruction. For example, if your child attends in-person classes in the PM cohort, they will participate in VAPA during the morning. Our teachers will let you know the new VAPA schedule that is on your child’s Teams calendar. Please reach out to your classroom teacher with VAPA related questions.

COVID-19 Testing on Campus

Image result for covid testing

Last week you should have received (through email and/or text message) information on how to register for your child to get tested for COVID-19 at our school site. If you have misplaced the email or link, another was sent to you on Friday, April 16th around 11:00 AM. You will not need to make an appointment for testing at our school sites. Our schools will provide on-demand testing, which means that we are accepting “walk-ins”—no appointments are necessary. Here is important information on the CVESD COVID-19 Testing Program:

• Testing will occur at Loma Verde Elementary School campus on the following days: April 21, May 5, 19, and June 2.

• On these days, testing will occur from 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM, with no testing from 12:30-1:00 PM due to staff lunch times.

• If your student is experiencing symptoms, we highly recommend getting a PCR test at a free County facility or with a medical provider, and not reporting to the school for the antigen test. Unfortunately, the antigen tests used by CVESD cannot be used for return to work or school, per the County’s Decisions Symptom Tree. The antigen testing program is for surveillance purposes, in order to quickly determine if individuals are positive and remove such individuals and their close contacts from campus as soon as possible. Contact our school health office for more information or discuss your child’s symptoms.

• At this time, we can only test staff and CVESD students. No family members are able test at this time.

• You do not need to be with your child in order for your child to test under our program; however, if your child walks up to the testing location, we will not be able to test them unless you have signed the on-line consent form at the link you are provided. We highly recommend that you accompany your child to the testing location.

• Links that are sent to you are personalized for your specific student and shouldn’t be shared with others.

• If you have trouble registering/providing consent for your child through the link, please call the district office at (619) 425-9600 and speak to Sherry Stone at ext. 1327 or Theresa Fletcher at ext. 1027 or visit the testing staff on-site at our school and they will be able to help register and test your child during your visit.

• Because we are not taking appointments, we know there will be long lines before and after school. Please take this into account when planning the time have your child tested. Please be patient with the testing team and listen carefully to their instructions.

Thank you for supporting our efforts to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus on our campus.

Returning to school if you reported your child absent due to be sick:

Please note, that we must follow the covid-19-decision-tree before your child can come back onto campus. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school nurse at 619-420-3940.

The Wildcat Way – April 12-16, 2021

SORRY, BUT THE HOLIDAYS ARE FINISHING AND IT'S TIME FOR ENGLISH! | Debbie's  school

Hello Loma Verde Families!

If you have not yet read the most recent update from the Superintendent of the Chula Vista Elementary School District, please click here.

The staff and I are excited to welcome our students back on campus! We look forward to seeing our Loma Verde Wildcats in person. Safety protocols are in place. The in-person, hybrid instructional model for students will begin on Monday, April 12. We have finalized rosters for in-person AM and PM cohorts and distance learning. Families were notified during the week of April 5 of your child’s hybrid/distance learning class. 

Monday, April 12th begins our hybrid instructional model for selected students at Loma Verde:

  • Some students will be on campus in the morning cohort (8:00 AM to 10:45 AM, Monday through Thursday).
  • Some will be on campus in the afternoon cohort (12:00 PM to 2:45 PM,
  • Monday through Thursday).
  • Other students will continue in the Distance Learning instructional model for the remainder of the school year. 
  • Friday is distance learning for all students (155 minutes)

Please note that this change to hybrid instruction may require many students, even those continuing in Distance Learning, to be re-assigned to a different teacher. Our school team tried its very best to accommodate parent preferences.  Please know that despite our best efforts, we may have offered some families an option that does not match their preferences. We will create a waitlist for in-person instruction. We appreciate your patience, understanding, and flexibility. If you need a change of placement, please complete this survey: https://forms.office.com/r/tdX5ffv5UJ. We can not guarantee change will be available. Once hybrid begins, we will not make changes for the first 3 weeks.

Hybrid parents: Please make sure your child eats BEFORE coming to school. They will not be eating at school. Send a labeled water bottle with your child.

ARRIVAL

To ensure safety for everyone there is a 10-minute arrival time window for each cohort.  For the AM Cohort students may arrive anytime between 8:00 AM– 8:10 AM. For the PM Cohort students may arrive between 12:00 PM – 12:10 PM. Students should not arrive before this time as there is no supervision.

Verizon Recall of Mobile Wifi Hot Spots

This week the Chula Vista Elementary School District received notification from the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) regarding Verizon’s recall of millions of mobile Wi-Fi hotspots issued for distance learning. 

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has cited situations where the internal lithium ion battery in the mobile hotspots can overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard. This issue impacts over 2.5 million mobile hotspots nationally, including mobile hotspots issued to our community. 

The safety of our students, families, and staff members is our top priority. Our District is working diligently, in concert with SDCOE and Verizon, to exchange all recalled Ellipsis Jetpack devices as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

While some students will return to campuses April 12, we understand that others will continue full- or part-time distance learning, so keeping students connected is critical to the learning process. 

There are two steps in this resolution process:

Step #1: Reducing Risk 

To help students stay connected until they receive their new device, Verizon will immediately push two automatic, over-the-air software updates to the affected Ellipsis Jetpacks. This update prevents the device from charging while the device is plugged in and powered on. This will help reduce some of the risk of overheating by preventing the device from charging while it is plugged in and powered on. Details for this automatic update process is listed below: 

  • Students will need to power on their devices in order to receive the software update. 
  • The updates will prevent the device from charging while the device is plugged in and powered on. 
  • Preventing the device from charging while it is plugged in removes one of the heat-causing variables and helps to reduce some of the risk of overheating associated with the small number of incidents Verizon has seen with the Ellipsis Jetpacks. 
  • Students will know the software update has been applied when they see the device’s identifying number scrolling across its screen. 
  • After the software update is applied, students should leave the device powered on while it is plugged in. 
  • When not in use, the device should be turned off, unplugged from its power source, and securely stored until you receive your replacement device and packaging to return the Ellipsis Jetpack safely. 

As a reminder, and to help promote the safe operation of all devices, please follow these best practices: 

  • When not in use, turn the device off and unplug it. 
  • Place your device on a flat, solid and sturdy surface such as a floor or table. 
  • For proper ventilation, do not use the device in a bed, sofa, chair or other soft surface, and ensure your device is not covered by a pillow, blanket or other item. 
  • Keep devices near room temperature when in use. 
  • Use only approved charging cables, including the cable provided. 
  • Do not expose the units to extreme temperatures for extended periods of time. 
  • Do not expose the unit or its battery to water or other liquids. 
  • Do not drop the units and do not insert foreign objects into the battery or unit. 

Step #2: Return/Exchange Your Hotspot 

A detailed plan for exchanging these devices for a new one will be communicated to families with such devices next week. 

New COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Testing Program

CVESD is collaborating with the County of San Diego, the State of California and Primary Health (system that reports test results to the state) to conduct free COVID Antigen Testing for our staff and students over the next couple months. For more information, see email, with same subject line, from CVESD Office of Communications sent on Friday, April 9 at approximately 6.30 p.m.

You will receive an email and text message from a company called “Primary” to register for the CVESD COVID-19 Antigen Testing Program.

We are proud to announce the launch of a new, free COVID-19 viral testing program—a “rapid” antigen testing program that will provide results in as little as 15 minutes. The program is part of our COVID-19 mitigation strategy and is made possible through the training and support of medical professionals.

Next week, April 12 – 16, testing hours at the Education Services and Support Center, 84 East J Street, Chula Vista, CA  91910 will be from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. and students will be invited to test.  At this location, we will have on-demand testing, which means that we are accepting walk-ins, no appointments are necessary. 

On April 19, we will start a two-week rotation at each of our school sites.  These testing opportunities will be by appointment.  Please talk to your administrator for your testing schedule.  For your convenience you will be able to make appointments at any CVESD school if it works better for your schedule.  In addition, employees and students will have the opportunity to test at the Education Services and Support Center, 84 East J Street, Chula Vista, CA  91910, every Friday if you are unable to attend your school’s testing or would like to be tested more frequently.   

Each student and staff member will receive an email and text message with a link to register from a company called “Primary,” so check your inbox (and junk/spam mail).  Click on the link to register/provide consent before you arrive, and it will save you time once you arrive on site to be tested.  Please note the link is personalized, so please do not share it with others.  When you have registered once, you will not need to register again to make future appointments. You will not be able to change specific information in the registration process but can ask a testing staff member to make changes for you while on site. Texts and emails form Primary will be sent to your contacts on file with the district as of 4/7/2021.

Once testing starts at schools, students do not need to be accompanied by an adult, IF the parent has already provided consent through the on-line registration process and an appointment is made; however, students will not be taken out of academic instruction on site for testing.  Please make appointments for students before and after their academic instruction on site.   

Diagnostic tests that determine if someone has an active COVID-19 infection fall into two categories: antigen tests, which are mostly used for rapid testing, and molecular and PCR tests. Antigen tests, also called rapid diagnostic tests, detect specific proteins on the surface of the coronavirus. 

IMPORTANT: If an employee or student is experiencing symptoms, we ask you to get a PCR test at a free county facility or with a medical provider. Unfortunately, the antigen tests used by CVESD cannot be used for return to work or school if an individual is symptomatic, per the County’s Symptom Decision Tree.  The antigen testing program is for surveillance purposes, in order to quickly determine if individuals are positive and remove such individuals and their contacts from campus as soon as possible.  

If you have any trouble registering or need information changed in the system, please visit any of the testing locations and testing staff can assist you and provide testing at that time. If the information is wrong in the registration system, please also contact your school to ensure the information is changed in the school database. Please do not call the school to change information in the testing registration site.

Please note that this change to hybrid instruction may require many students, even those continuing in Distance Learning, to be re-assigned to a different teacher. Our school team tried its very best to accommodate parent preferences.  Please know that despite our best efforts, we may have offered some families an option that does not match their preferences. We will create a waitlist for in-person instruction. We appreciate your patience, understanding, and flexibility.

The week of April 5th to April 9th is a teacher preparation week. This means that all students will receive 180 minutes of synchronous, online instruction from their current teacher, but will receive the remaining required instructional minutes asynchronously online.

Messages From the Superintendent

Hybrid Model Begins on April 12th

Please see the letter below from our Superintendent of schools, Dr. Francisco Escobedo:

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is my pleasure to share our District’s official notice to you that our in-person, hybrid instructional model for students will begin on Monday, April 12. CVESD teachers who are working in the in-person hybrid instructional model will return to their respective schools on Monday, April 5. This ensures teachers and staff have appropriate time to prepare for the transition from distance learning to in-person instruction. Reopening details will be shared at a Virtual Town Hall Meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 23.  

As you know, parents can select the in-person hybrid model or keep their child(ren) in distance learning for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. At a special meeting on Tuesday, a Board of Education majority noted that our District is on track to move forward with in-person instruction because we have met the conditions laid out in the Memorandum of Understanding with Chula Vista Educators, the bargaining group that represents teachers. A key condition for reopening was that San Diego County return to the Red Tier, as defined in the state’s tiered system. This week, County officials announced that COVID-19 case rates lowered enough for the state to re-designate San Diego from the most restrictive Purple Tier to the less restrictive Red Tier—paving the way for school districts across the region to reopen or expand in-person instruction.  

Starting school in a hybrid format ensures that a limited number of students are on campus at any one time, allowing protocols such as physical distancing to be more easily implemented. In CVESD, the hybrid model consists of in-person instruction in an a.m./p.m. format Monday-Thursday, with Fridays reserved for distance learning. 

It would be the first time that our schools have reopened to daily instruction since the pandemic forced school closures a year ago. I am indeed excited to welcome back students to in-person instruction. I know so many staff and families are excited to return as well. I also recognize the anxiety that some have about a return of even some of our students to campus. I want to reassure you that our District is going above and beyond when it comes to safety protocols and requirements. A hybrid instructional format is not a perfect solution. But it is an important step in restoring educational equity to our community. Students and families have suffered immensely during the pandemic from the prolonged school closures. Now, it is time to heal. It is time for all of us to recover and rebuild together. 

Thank you for your patience, resiliency and grit in these extraordinary 12 months since we had to close our schools.

Warm regards,

Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D.
Superintendent

Transition to Hybrid Instruction Approved

As you know, our CVESD school board authorized the transition to hybrid instruction at the CVESD board meeting on 3/2/2021. We do not have an exact date for the start of hybrid instruction yet, but they did announce it would be no sooner than April 5th. Once we have a specific return date, we will share it via all our communication platforms. We have been busy preparing for the transition to hybrid instruction for many months. We are in the process of finalizing our Hybrid In Person Rosters and our Distance Learning Rosters. Our hybrid schedule, will be 8:10 to 10:45 M-TH or 12:10-2:45 M-TH with all Distance Learning on Friday. If your child is staying in the Distance Learning format, their schedule will remain fairly consistent. We are using the preferences you submitted for either In Person or Distance Learning on the survey you completed at the end of January. If you have changed your mind since then, and have not already emailed me about that change, please email me as soon as possible. We can make adjustments to rosters as space allows. Our goal is to finalize rosters in the next week. My email address is bree.watson@cvesd.org, please feel free to email me if you have any questions or if you have changed your preference. If you would like additional information about Reopening, please read the district handbook for parents in both English and Spanish: CLICK HERE.

LCAP Thought Exchange

The Chula Vista Elementary School District invites you to contribute to “ThoughtExchange,” our interactive survey, which helps us understand what is working well and how we can improve. Your input is key to guiding our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), a three-year plan that describes the District’s goals, actions, services, and expenditures that support positive student outcomes.

Franklin Downtown Partnership: Share Your Input

about the LCAP necessarily revolve around resource allocation and target students’ classroom learning opportunities—particularly those of English Learners, students of poverty (including homeless), and foster youth. School districts such as ours receive additional funding based on the number of low-income, English learner, and foster youth that we serve. Development of our plan is dependent on the input of stakeholders that include students, parents, staff, employee representative groups, and community organizations.

Please take a few minutes to respond to open-ended questions about what we’re doing well and where we can improve in our goals, actions and services. If you have not already done so, please click here to access or cut and paste the following into your web browser: https://tejoin.com/884705022

Stakeholders begin by sharing their thoughts. Then, they review and “star” the thoughts of others before discovering what the community values.

Learn more here about the state’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), which is California’s mechanism for allocating funding for K-12 schools, and how it relates to the LCAP.

Transition to Hybrid Instruction Approved

As you know, our CVESD school board authorized the transition to hybrid instruction at the CVESD board meeting last week on 3/2/2021. We do not have an exact date for the start of hybrid instruction yet, but they did announce it would be no sooner than April 5th. Once we have a specific return date, we will share it via all our communication platforms. We have been busy preparing for the transition to hybrid instruction for many months. We are in the process of finalizing our Hybrid In Person Rosters and our Distance Learning Rosters. Our hybrid schedule, will be 8:10 to 10:45 M-TH or 12:10-2:45 M-TH with all Distance Learning on Friday. If your child is staying in the Distance Learning format, their schedule will remain fairly consistent. We are using the preferences you submitted for either In Person or Distance Learning on the survey you completed at the end of January. If you have changed your mind since then, and have not already emailed me about that change, please email me as soon as possible. We can make adjustments to rosters as space allows. Our goal is to finalize rosters in the next week. My email address is bree.watson@cvesd.org, please feel free to email me if you have any questions or if you have changed your preference. If you would like additional information about Reopening, please read the district handbook for parents in both English and Spanish: CLICK HERE.

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.

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. As of this writing, 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.

Please note that the Governor’s updated guidance came out just days ago—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.

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:  

  • Monday, Feb. 8 @ Vista Square Elementary, 540 G Street, Chula Vista, 91910. 
  • Tuesday, Feb. 9 @ Olympic View Elementary, 1220 South Greensview Dr., Chula Vista, 91915. 
  • Wednesday, Feb. 10 @ Muraoka Elementary, 1644 Santa Alexia Ave., Chula Vista, 91913. 
  • Thursday, Feb. 11 @ the CVESD District Offices, 84 East J Street, Chula Vista, 91910. 
  • 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.

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.
