COVID-19 Testing

You should have received (through email and/or text message) information on April 16th on how to register for your child to get tested for COVID-19 at our school site.  You will not need to make an appointment for testing at our school site.  Our school will provide on-demand testing, which means that we are accepting “walk-ins”—no appointments are necessary. Here is important information on the CVESD COVID-19 Testing Program: 

  • Testing will occur at Wolf Canyon Elementary School campus on the following days:  May 10th and June 7th.
  • On these days, testing will occur from 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM.
  • If your student is experiencing symptoms, we highly recommend getting a PCR test at a free County facility or with a medical provider, and not reporting to the school for the antigen test. Unfortunately, the antigen tests used by CVESD cannot be used for return to work or school, per the County’s Symptom Decision Tree. The antigen testing program is for surveillance purposes, in order to quickly determine if individuals are positive and remove such individuals and their close contacts from campus as soon as possible. Contact our school health office for more information or discuss your child’s symptoms. 
  • At this time, we can only test staff and CVESD students. No family members are able test at this time. 
  • You do not need to be with your child in order for your child to test under our program; however, if your child walks up to the testing location, we will not be able to test them unless you have signed the on-line consent form at the link you are provided.   We highly recommend that you accompany your child to the testing location. 
  • Links that are sent to you are personalized for your specific student and shouldn’t be shared with others.  
  • If you have trouble registering/providing consent for your child through the link, please call the district office at (619) 425-9600 and speak to Sherry Stone at ext. 1327 or Theresa Fletcher at ext. 1027 or visit the testing staff on-site at our school and they will be able to help register and test your child during your visit.  
  • Because we are not taking appointments, we know there will be long lines before and after school.  Please take this into account when planning the time have your child tested.   Please be patient with the testing team and listen carefully to their instructions.  

Thank you for supporting our efforts to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus on our campus.

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.
  • PM third grade will exit at the fourth-grade gate.
  • TK – Gr. 1 students need to be picked up by parent or sibling. Parents need to park and walk to the gate.
  • Gr. 2 students who are being picked up by a car need to walk down to the flagpole area and stand on a paw.
  • Pickup circle: If you are picking up your child from the pickup circle in a vehicle, please pull forward and pick your child up from the front of the school nearest the flagpole.
  • If a student is sent home from school because they exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, they will not be allowed back on campus for 10 days or a negative COVID-19 test.  This test must be a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.
  • If a student is a close contact to a COVID-19 positive person outside of school, the student will need to quarantine for 14 days. The student will be assigned asynchronous work by their Hybrid teacher. 
  • If we have a positive COVID-19 case on campus, the impacted classroom cohort (both am/pm classes) as well as any close contacts will need to quarantine at home for 14 days.  The cohort of students will move to distance learning for the 14 days.
