The Board of Education has approved changes to the Injury and Illness Prevention Program, the COVID-19 Prevention Plan, and District Guidance to Staff, Students, Parents/Guardians, and the community regarding COVID-19. Below are the changes that were approved and take effect on Monday, August 30:
The Chula Vista Elementary School District will mandate properly positioned and correctly fitted masks to be worn at all campuses, including District offices, at all times, regardless of vaccination status. Adults may only remove masks when actively eating or drinking. Masks must be worn if anyone is around, students or staff, vaccinated or not. This includes parents/guardians who may be walking their students onto campus or anytime they are on school grounds. Students may only remove their masks to play at recess, during PE, and while they eat, all of which should happen outdoors, weather permitting. Masks are required in hallways while traveling to and from the playground and lunch area and while students gather outside the gate at arrival prior to entering.
The Chula Vista Elementary School District will form a District-level Safety Committee, with representation from certificated, classified, and non-represented employees, as well as parents, to advise on the creation and implementation of COVID-19 safety measures, and to oversee site-level committees. All school sites will create a Site Safety Committee, with representation from certificated, classified, and non-represented employees, as well as parents, to address site-specific safety concerns and help implement District safety measures.
The Chula Vista Elementary School District will publish a weekly COVID-19 update with simple, bulleted information, including current District case numbers (including the last reporting date for those numbers) as well as any changes made in COVID-19 guidelines that week. It will be sent directly to stakeholders including, but not limited to, staff and parents/guardians via email and School Messenger and published on the District website in an easily accessible location.

Thank you for your continued support with our drop-off and pick-up procedures. The morning time can be a bit busy and we are always working to make the process as smooth as possible for everyone.
One way we can continue to work together is to remain mindful of the drop-zone. When dropping off in the morning we ask that you pull all the way forward (even if your child uses a the first and second grade gate). We understand that students may have to walk a few extra steps, but if we can get as many people pulling forward as possible, it helps to eliminate the bottleneck that can occur.
Finally, when in the drop-off zone, please do your best to remain in the car and have students exit on the passenger side of the vehicle. We have seen a few close calls when parents exit the car, and another car happens to be driving around in the next lane. If you would prefer to walk your child into school, please park in the parking lot and then use the cross walk.
The school site council is a group of teachers, parents, and classified employees, that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the site council are generally elected by their peers. For example, parents elect the parent representatives and teachers elect teachers.
This year, Wolf Canyon is looking for two new parent members of the team. If you are interested, please fill out the following form by this Thursday. We will then hold elections over the weekend, and hold our first meeting the first week of September.
Because of this year’s COVID attendance protocol, we are experiencing a higher-than-normal absence rate and we desperately need your help. Each time a student is absent from school we are required to go into the system and code it appropriately. We can only do that if that information has been communicated to us by the family.
How can you help? If your child is going to be absent, we ask that you communicate that information with us. A phone call always works, but often takes additional time to sort out. To expedite the process please email the information listed below to WolfCanyonSchool@cvesd.org
Student’s Full Name:
Date of Absence:
Reason for Absence*:
*If your child will be absent because of any of the following COVID related symptoms please include those symptoms in the email. Please note that if your child is sick with any of the following symptoms, they cannot return to school until they have received a negative PCR Covid test or have been quarantined for 10 days (returning on the 11th day).
Fever > 100.0F
Shortness of breath
New loss of taste/smell

Did you know that even during Distance Learning over the past year, every single Timberwolf got to enjoy art class with Mrs. Adamos? As we have returned to in-person learning, we are no longer limited to toilet paper rolls, crayons & scratch paper, but our students will get to explore many different mediums in the art room & create amazing projects!
When you pick up your pizza dinner at Blaze Pizza this Wednesday & Thursday, those delicious slices will help our Art department be able to purchase unique tools that will allow our Timberwolves to experience art in different ways & tap into their creativity! To get a peek at what our Timberwolves are creating each week, visit the art blog: https://wolfpackartistsblog.wordpress.com/ to hear about what projects Mrs. Adamos’ has planned for the year here!

Our fabulous, student-led, Safety Patrol is in the final stage of training. We are excited that you will see them outside soon, assisting with traffic.
Below is a training video that outlines the expectations for our Students, and is also a helpful for parents as it will familiarize them with what our students will be doing.
Also, as a friendly reminder here are some helpful tips for the parking lot.
Drop off and arrival can feel hectic. There are nearly 1000 students that attend Wolf Canyon, and our parking lot infrastructure was not designed to support that number. Because of this, it is even more important to remember the following guidelines.
DRIVE SLOWLY AND CAUTIOUSLY
OBSERVE SIGNS, CONES, AND STUDENTS
THANK YOU FOR NOT TEXTING OR TALKING ON CELL PHONES WHILE DRIVING
REMEMBER TO USE THE CROSSWALKS AT ALL TIMES
THANK YOU FOR NOT DOUBLE PARKING
REMEMBER TO PULL ALL THE WAY FORWARD IF YOU ARE IN THE DROP-OFF LANE
THE PARKING LOT IS NOT A PICKUP AND DROP OFF AREA
THANK YOU FOR NOT MOTIONING FOR YOUR CHILD TO WALK BETWEEN CARS OR DISREGARDING THE SAFETY PATROL OFFICERS
THANK YOU FOR BEING RESPECTFUL AND POLITE
