The Wildcat Way – Feb. 28-Mar. 4, 2022 (Week #27)

“Achieving Excellence for ALL – Juntos Alcanzando Excelencia”

Outdoor Masking Update:

Dear CVESD Staff and Parents/Guardians,

With decreasing COVID-19 positive cases, reduced hospitalizations, and more individuals being vaccinated, we are re-examining our mask mandates.  Currently, we are happy to announce a lifting of the requirement to wear masks outdoors at school. This policy update will take effect on Monday, February 28th. Of course, any student or staff member who feels more comfortable wearing a mask while outdoors at school is welcome to continue to do so.  At this time, we will continue to have the mandate to always wear masks indoors for all students and adults.   We will continue to monitor health organizations recommendations, and local, state, and federal mandates to determine the best course of action as we navigate through this pandemic.   

We are proud of the work our school site and District staff have done to carry out health and safety protocols and even more proud of how our students have responded to these health-focused policies. At schools across the District, students, teachers, and staff have modeled a sense of community and a willingness to look out for one another.

As a District, we will always remain committed to the health and safety of our school communities and to adhering to the appropriate mandates and health recommendations. 

We encourage all members of our school communities to continue to follow public health guidelines and recommendations for remaining safe as the pandemic has not yet gone away. 

For more information on the District’s COVID-19 response, please visit our website at www.cvesd.org

Sincerely,

Eduardo Reyes, Ed. D.

Superintendent

Asunto:  CVESD eliminará el requisito del uso de cubrebocas en los exteriores de las escuelas.

Apreciable personal de CVESD y padres/tutores:

Con la disminución de casos positivos de COVID-19, reducción de hospitalizaciones y más personas vacunadas, estamos revisando nuestros mandatos sobre cubrebocas. Actualmente, nos da gusto anunciar la eliminación del requisito para usar cubrebocas en los exteriores de las escuelas. Esta actualización a la política entrará en vigor el lunes, 28 de febrero. Por supuesto, cualquier estudiante o miembro del personal que se sienta más cómodo usando un cubrebocas mientras esté en exteriores de la escuela puede continuar haciéndolo. Por el momento, continuaremos implementando el mandato de que todos los estudiantes y adultos usen cubrebocas en interiores. Continuaremos monitoreando las recomendaciones de las organizaciones de salud y los mandatos locales, estatales y federales para determinar el mejor curso de acción para navegar por esta pandemia.

Estamos orgullosos del trabajo que nuestro personal en las escuelas y en el Distrito ha realizado para implementar los protocolos de salud y seguridad, y aún más orgullosos de la manera en que nuestros estudiantes han respondido a estas políticas enfocadas en la salud. En las escuelas de todo el Distrito, los estudiantes, maestros y personal han modelado un sentido de comunidad y voluntad de cuidarse unos a otros.

Como Distrito, siempre estaremos comprometidos con la salud y seguridad de nuestras comunidades escolares y con el cumplimiento de los mandatos y recomendaciones de salud correspondientes.

Alentamos a todos los miembros de nuestras comunidades escolares a continuar cumpliendo con las pautas de salud pública y las recomendaciones para mantener la seguridad, ya que la pandemia aún no ha terminado.

Cordialmente,

Dr. Eduardo Reyes

  • There are new requirements for testing after exposure. Negative test results for students after exposure are now tracked by CVESD and must be reported by parent/guardian at this link: https://forms.office.com/r/uzEF13QrRE.
  • To report a positive case to us in the office, please email lomaverdeschool@cvesd.org
  • If your child is experiencing any symptoms, please keep them at home and notify the school office at (619) 420-3940.
  • If you have someone who is known positive in your household, please also keep your child home and notify the office
  • If you have a COVID Positive Case in your home and need guidance on isolation/quarantine, please email covtest4@cvesd.org
  • If your K-12 student is exposed to a positive case indoors for 15+ minutes, your child will need to be tested for COVID-19 3, 4 or 5 days AFTER the last date of exposure to the positive individual to continue to come to school. If you do not want to test your child after the exposure, they must remain home for 10 days and can return to campus day 11. We have five testing sites on our campuses offering both PCR and antigen testing, Monday–Friday from 7 am to 6 pm.
  • The district’s website, www.cvesd.org, is updated daily to reflect COVID testing hours and locations.
  • Masks are required on indoors while on campus for adults and students. 
  • Independent Study Contracts are available for students who have tested positive or who must isolate/quarantine. Contact the office at lomaverdeschool@cvesd.org to discuss the contract.

Weekly, On-Site, Covid Testing Tues., 3/1 at Loma Verde

Testing Frequency | Genesis HealthCare

If you would like to take advantage of this free and convenient service, you must register your children by using the link provided to you via your email or with this link: https://school.covidclinic.org. So far we have 177 students and staff signed up to test!

To register your account, click the parent/guardian tab. Fill in your information and then your children’s information. You will need each child’s student ID#. You will then be prompted to Part Two which is ordering a test for your children. This second step must be completed by 2 PM Monday, 2/28 to ensure we have a test kit prepared for your child by Tuesday. After doing this the first time, the order will repeat itself every week – no further action will be needed. You will receive an email confirming “Your Order Has Been Placed”.

To revoke or skip testing at any time after that email: k12@covidclinic.org

Anyone that has tested positive for Covid would want to skip PCR testing for 90-days as this could result in false positives.

On Tuesdays, teams will go to each classroom to test students & staff that are registered and have ordered their tests. This will take approximately 10 minutes per class. Any positive results will be reported to you and the district the next day through an email.

Weekly COVID testing of all students and staff at school will increase our ability to keep our school safe and open during this pandemic. It also removes the burden from you to take your children to get tested after every exposure, and it will fill the weekly testing requirement for sports team participation.

Thank you for your participation!
