WEEKLY UPDATE: Week of April 19th

It was great to have Timberwolves back on campus this week while also continuing distance learning for many of our students.  Teachers, staff, parents, and students should all be commented for following all safety protocols and ensuring a smooth re-opening to in person instruction.  

Our first week of in person learning went very well.  Please read and review a few reminders to ensure an even more successful second week.

  • Please use the designated cross-walks in front of the school
  • Pick up times are:
    • AM cohort – 11:30 – 11:45 a.m.
      • Any student who has not been picked up by 11:45 a.m. will be brought to the office and someone on the emergency card will need to sign the student out.
    • PM cohort – 3:15 -3:30 p.m.
      • Any student who has not been picked up by 3:30 p.m. will be brought to the office and someone on the emergency card will need to sign the student out.

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.

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/
