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.

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.

Loma Verde vs. Rohr Virtual Field Day Has Started!
Please click on the link below to participate in our 2021 Field Day Activities Challenge! 😀
Click here for the information about the virtual field day events: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1SR701JsszctWXtE2IEXhiXNUVtEuwpeEISxFlUJ_JTw/edit?usp=sharing
We are very excited to have so many of our Wildcats back on campus! As always, please contact our Attendance Health Specialist, Irene Lemos, if your student will be absent from school for any reason, regardless of whether they are in hybrid or distance learning. Please email email@example.com with the reason for your child’s absence.
Please note, for students physically at school in hybrid learning, it is very important that parents/guardians speak with our office staff regarding the reason for any student absence from class. For the health and safety of all students and staff, students who are absent without parent contact will not be allowed back on campus until the parent/guardian discusses the reason for the absence with school office staff.
Returning to school if you reported your child absent due to being sick:
- If a student is sick, we will ask the parent to confirm which symptoms the student is experiencing.
- If symptoms align with symptoms of COVID-19, the school will follow the COVID-19-decision-tree English (Spanish) in collaboration with the school site nurse. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school nurse, Linda Kucinski, at 619-420-3940.
- If symptoms are part of a chronic condition, the school will work with the school site nurse to determine next steps.
- If symptoms are not a possible symptom of COVID-19, the student will be welcomed back to school after following normal school health protocols.
- Please note, that we must follow the COVID-19 decision tree before your child can come back onto campus.
We look forward to an amazing rest of our school year. Thank you for your support of our learning environment.
