A Message from CVESD:

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.

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.

We are sure you have many questions about the proposed Hybrid Model and we want to help you make an informed decision when taking the survey and indicating your preference. We want to provide you with answers to some frequently asked questions (FAQ.) Please see this FAQ document.

The survey was due on January 25th. If you did not have the opportunity to complete it, your child will be placed into the distance learning format.
