As you may have heard, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a statewide “shelter-in-place.” This latest directive aligns closely with actions taken earlier this week by our San Diego County officials, which means we will continue limiting gatherings to no more than 10 individuals and enforcing social distancing.
In a unified effort to protect the health of students, staff and school communities, the Chula Vista Elementary School District and other school districts countywide, in collaboration with the County Department of Public Health, made the collective decision to remain closed indefinitely. We will send you weekly updates while our schools are closed until further notice. We are taking a proactive and aggressive approach to maintain the health, safety and well-being of our schools and communities.
The Governor’s order does not change or impact the role of CVESD, which is considered essential, nor our duty to carry out the following essential services:
- Meals being prepared and distributed to students.
- Any function associated with keeping the continuity of learning moving forward.
As we all adjust to the ongoing reality of school closures, we want to provide a message of encouragement and support to you, our families. CVESD is comprised of staff, parents, students, and our community partners. Together each of us is being asked to do our part. These are truly unprecedented times and ones that can be challenging for our children to understand. We appreciate the difficult task that families face in keeping their loved ones healthy, safe and informed.
