Are You Signed Up Yet for the Kids Heart Challenge November 2-20?
This is the last week of the Kids Heart Challenge! Details were shared during VAPA time with Coach Gonzalez.
Join us in learning about heart health and raising funds to protect all hearts – especially kid’s hearts! Through fun activities we’ll discover ways to take care of our hearts and brains while practicing kindness, gratitude and learning ways to de-stress. Plus, we have the chance to earn PE equipment for our school!
If 150 students take the Health Challenge we will SLIME the PRINCIPAL Mrs. Watson! There is a school challenge between Rohr and Loma Verde schools to see who will SLIME the principal first. Wildcats, show your school spirit and sign up to take the Health Challenge.

COVID Testing and Tracing Program
The Chula Vista Elementary School District is working with COVID-19 testing company Kahala Biosciences to host the CVESD Safe! Testing & Tracing Program. We are excited to invite your student and your family members, on a voluntary basis, to test with us at the following sites from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the following locations:
- 11/16 Vista Square Elementary

- 11/18 Olympic View Elementary
- 11/19 Muraoka Elementary
- 11/20 Castle Park Elementary
- 11/20 Lauderbach Elementary
The CVESD Safe! Testing & Tracing Program will help ensure school communities are safe for students and staff through a series of COVID-19 tests and wellness evaluations. This program is completely voluntary. We see it as a great opportunity to ensure the safety of our students, teachers, and staff—even family members. We cannot safely reopen schools until rates improve in our District boundary areas. Click on the registration link below to schedule an appointment.
Testing involves your choice of Antibody Test (Finger) and/or Viral Test (Shallow Nose Swab), at NO COST to you.
Make sure you bring the following REQUIRED items for each participant on testing day:
- Please wear a mask
- Government-issued ID or passport
- Health Insurance card (if you have health insurance) if you don’t have one, please come anyway

The CVESD Caring Crew and YOU!
We would like to remind our entire community that following the four pillars of health can prevent the spread of COVID-19. As we prepare for the eventual return of some students to campus in phases, our District and school will be enforcing the four core principles (also known as four pillars) for the prevention of COVID-19. These include: 1) Daily Health Screenings, 2) Mask Wearing, 3) Physical Distancing, and 4) Frequent Hand Washing.
Computer Devices & WIFI to Loan Families
We recommend each student have their own laptop with a camera and microphone for Distance Learning. Some tablets have compatibility issues with the Microsoft Teams platform and online learning programs.
If your child needs a device or wifi hotspot, please complete and submit this form below, so we can plan and prepare the devices for distribution. If you do not need a device or hotspot, please do not fill out this form. Please fill out a form for each child who needs a device. Do not fill out for a child who previously received a device. We will notify you when you device and/or WIFI hotspot are ready.
With information about the COVID-19 pandemic changing quickly, CVESD will do its best to keep our community informed as new details become available. Click here to find links to Community Services.
