CVESD is Actively Preparing for a Safe Return

(January 12, 2021)—As part of our agreement with Chula Vista Educators, our District can 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. At this time, it is difficult to predict when San Diego County will transition from purple to red and allow for a safe return.

Be reassured that our District continues busily preparing 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.

For all our preparations, we need every resident in Chula Vista to help ensure the Four Pillars are followed: Physical Distancing, Hygiene and Disinfecting, Health Screening and Monitoring, and use of Personal Protective Equipment—wear a mask, please. There is also a fifth element to our safety efforts. We call it CVESD Safe! and it consists of our testing and tracing program to detect and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

In addition, the County included nearly 100 CVESD employees in the first phase to be offered COVID-19 vaccinations. These employees are predominately school nurses, attendance health specialists, and health clerks. State/County officials are including educators in a later tier of vaccinations, which could be offered within weeks.

Although this news portends much hope for the future, we implore everyone to please keep your guard up. Follow protocols at home, your workplace and the community in the fight against COVID-19. We encourage you to view our video below about preparations at our campuses, and browse through Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
