We hope that you all had a fantastic spring break.  We are excited to begin the fourth quarter and welcome some of our students back for in-person learning on April 12th.  All students will be continuing with distance learning the week of April 5th and during this week all students will be receiving 3 hours of synchronous instruction.

COVID-19 Testing

As part of our efforts to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, our District will offer viral and antibody testing the week of April 5 to staff, students, their families, and community. This is the period after spring break, and before the start of hybrid instruction on April 12. Testing will be available 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with no testing taking place between 12 noon and 1 p.m. The dates and locations are:

  • Monday, April 5 @ Vista Square Elementary, 540 G Street, Chula Vista, 91910.
  • Tuesday, April 6 @ Olympic View Elementary, 1220 South Greensview Dr., Chula Vista, 91915.

  • Thursday, April 8 @ Lauderbach Elementary, 390 Palomar Street, Chula Vista, 91911.
  • Friday, April 9 @ Finney Elementary, 3950 Byrd Street, San Diego, 92154.

The antibody test consists of a light fingerprick; results as quickly as 15 minutes for those who stay around for their results. The viral test is the shallow nose swab test; results available within three-to-four business days. Learn more here: Viral Test for COVID-19 

Testing is voluntary. Participants have the option of only doing one of the tests or both, and they are offered at no cost (covered through health insurance or reimbursable to testing provider Kahala Biosciences under the CARES Act for those who do not have insurance). Per requests, immediate family/household members are also eligible to participate. To schedule an appointment, please click here or cut and paste the following into your web browser: https://kahalabiosciences.com/cvesd-safe/

    In-person Hybrid Reopening Date Set

    Wolf Canyon Families,

    We are so excited that the Chula Vista Elementary School District has announced that its in-person, hybrid instructional model for students will begin on Monday, April 12. We cannot wait to welcome our students back for in person instruction.  This is a reminder that we have a reopening parent meeting scheduled for March 18th at 6:00 pm to review our reopening plan with parents and to answer questions.  This meeting will be recorded and additional meetings will be scheduled as we lead up to reopening.  Please see the meeting details below.

    Link to parent meeting

    During parent teacher conferences, teachers will be confirming parent preference as to whether they wish for their child to attend hybrid learning or continue with distance learning when we return on April 12th.  The Monday-Thursday and Friday hybrid schedule is below.

    WEEKLY UPDATE: Week of March 15th

    Wolf Canyon Families,

    As COVID-19 case rates continue to decline throughout the county, we are excited that San Diego County may soon enter the less restrictive red tier and we may soon be able to open Wolf Canyon Elementary for in person instruction using the hybrid model.  When we are given the clearance to reopen by the Chula Vista Elementary Board of Education, we will be ready to welcome your child(ren) back to school.

    The CVESD Board of Education will be meeting Tuesday, March 16th at 6:00 p.m. for a Special Board Meeting where they will discuss reopening CVESD for in person instructions.  You can access this virtual board meeting through the District Website http://www.cvesd.org.

    We are currently in the process of finalizing in person (Hybrid) vs. distance learning parent preferences.  Teachers have been contacting parents to confirm preferences and will continue through our upcoming parent teacher conferences. 

    There is a Principal Chat scheduled for next Thursday, March 18th at 5:00 p.m. Click here to join the meeting. The meeting will be recorded in case you are unable to attend at that time.

    Please note the following details regarding the hybrid model:

    • Smaller class sizes to help maintain a safe 6-feet of distance
    • Cohort of students-AM & PM
      • AM Session- 8:45-11:30 (2hrs 45 min)
      • PM Session- 12:30-3:15 (2hrs 45 min)
    • Thing’s parents/guardians should plan for in the hybrid model:
      • No in person learning on Friday (all students will attend distance learning each Friday)
      • NO breakfast or lunch will be served
      • NO recess will be provided
      • NO snack break will be provided
      • NO before or after school care will be provided such as YMCA and DASH (if your child is enrolled in DLSP, this will continue)
      • Assure students are dropped off and picked up on time
      • No transportation will be provided unless it is indicated on your child’s IEP
      • NO parents or volunteers will be allowed on campus
      • ALL students and staff will be required to wear a mask while on campus
      • Students will be required to complete asynchronous work before or after in person instruction

    If a family elects to keep their child in distance learning, your child’s schedule will remain similar with the exception of TK and our Special Day Classes (SDC).

    We will continue to update you on our reopening plans.  Please contact me should you have any questions in the meantime. 

    Thank you,

    Mathew Shy
