Hello Wolf Canyon Families

We appreciate everyone’s patience and resolve during our transition from winter break back to school.  It has been such a joy to welcome students and staff back into our halls and classrooms!  This email contains a great deal of important information, and we truly appreciate you taking the time to read it in its entirety.   

Please be aware that the guidelines for quarantine, testing, and returning to school are rapidly evolving.  As this happens, we are doing our very best to stay informed and provide quick support to our families.  We ask that you continue to exercise patience and grace toward everyone as we navigate these waters together.  

Below are the current guidelines for testing:

CVESD also understands there are still many questions that families have related to the protocols in place.  With that in mind, they have developed a COVID 19 email address COVTEST4@CVESD.ORG 

If you have any COVID-related questions or concerns, please reach out directly to that email as it is checked throughout the day and responded to quickly. 

Also, with the increase of positive cases the processes for notifying the community of said cases and close contacts has changed. 

What’s the same:  Each time there is a positive case at school you will receive the general email with the non-close contact notification form attached

What is different: If it was determined that your child was a close contact while at school you will receive a secondary email explaining the next steps.  The email that you will get contains a survey for you to fill out.  This survey is a critical step as it gives you an opportunity to provide important information and choose a quarantine option.  If you don’t fill the form out within 24 hours, it will be assumed that your child will be out the full ten days and return on day 11.

Please let us know if your child has tested positive (whether from a home test, test from a doctor, test from a county testing site, or while taking a test at the district)

What to do if your child tests positive: Use the procedures below to notify us of any positive test that occurs beginning today, 1/14/2022. You do not need to report a case that occurred prior to today as that has already been captured by the previous process.

  1. Write your child’s name on the test kit and take a picture of it (home test) or download the copy of the lab report sent to you by the testing lab (non-district lab).
  2. Send an email to CovTest3@cvesd.org using the template below.
  3. Make sure to also include casey.lange@cvesd.org on the email.

Email Template:

Subject Line: Positive COVID Test

Body: Name, Date of Birth, School (because it goes to the district as well), Grade, Classroom #, Symptom Onset Date, Symptoms, Contact Number, Last day at school.

Thank you,

Casey Lange

Rainy Day Dismissal

Happy Tuesday!  We wanted to pass along some clarification for rainy day dismissal. 

Kindergarten:  Bus riders will be walked down to the lunch area and wait either at the tables or in the MPR depending on the conditions. All other kindergartners will be picked up directly from their classrooms. We will open the K gate at approximately 2:55 to allow parents to head toward their child’s classroom.    

First through Sixth:  Bus riders will be walked down, or dismissed to the lunch area, and wait either at the tables or in the MPR depending on the conditions. Students that walk home, or that are picked up by car, will be dismissed from their classroom at 3:15. If you are picking up your child in person we will open the gates between 3:10 and 3:15 for you to head to their classroom. At 3:25, all students not picked up will be brought to the front office.

Thank you,

Wolf Canyon Team

6th-Grade Mock Newbery Wishlist…

Thank you to those that have already helped out our 6th-Grade team fulfill their Newbery Wishlist! If you are interested in knowing more about it take a look below at the updated list of needed books! Any and all support is appreciated!

MOCK NEWBERY WISHLIST! – Have you ever seen this seal on the front cover of a book? It is called the Newbery Award and this award is given to “… the most distinguished American children’s book of the previous year.” The winner is chosen by committees of the Association for Library Service to Children. Committee members consists of distinguished adults who read, discuss, and select a winner each year. Knowing this, the students have often wondered why children and students have never been part of the selection process. Hence, in 2015 the birth of Wolf Canyon’s Mock Newbery was born.

Wolf Canyon sixth graders participate in an annual Mock Newbery. Eight titles from a contenders list is selected. Students read and discuss each title, and in the end, the students select a winner based on a student-generated rubric using the John Newbery criteria as a guide. Each year, our students learn to love reading and express and contribute their opinions about what they read.

Thank you for the incredible generosity from our families who were able to donate books for our upcoming Mock Newbery Book project for all sixth graders at Wolf Canyon!!! Your thoughtfulness will inspire many of our young readers with amazing, current, and exemplary pieces of literature. We are still short of a full rotation for ALL sixth graders so we are asking for a final push to help us get 16 copies of each book. Currently, we are at:
