  • Dear Cajon Valley Families,
    As we close out the final day of our summer learning enrichment program tomorrow, I wanted to congratulate all students who showed up for learning and getting back to school. I also want to thank all employees of the Cajon Valley Union School District who made it possible to provide programs to families we are so fortunate to serve.
    Next week we will be reconvening our stakeholder meetings and communicating our plans and upcoming options for our families.  Your feedback will help inform our instructional offerings for the coming year.
    In addition to our instructional program, families will be receiving a Fall Child Care interest survey next week. This survey information will help us identify child care needs at each site.

Cajon Valley Fall Update Letter to Parents

  • July 27, 2020

    Dear Cajon Valley Families, 

    As you may have heard, Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an order about reopening and closing schools. In the order, he is requiring all districts that are located in counties on the state’s public monitor list to start the school year with distance learning until certain conditions are met. This includes San Diego County. 

    As a result of the new order, Cajon Valley Union School District will begin the 2020/2021 school year with 100% distance learning, August 19th, 2020. 

    Cajon Valley believes that our developed plan to include the on-line, hybrid and full time in school options are the best and most flexible for our families and students.  It is our intent to implement all options as soon as the Governor's office and local health directives allow us to do so.

    We recognize that continuing distance learning poses challenges and hardship for many families and have learned much from Spring closures.  The following priorities have been established for Fall distance learning:

    • Live teacher led daily instruction
    • Teacher created personalized student lessons
    • Focus on state standards using district pacing guides
    • Enrichment and Physical Education lessons
    • Graded assignments
    • Daily attendance tracking
    • Teacher feedback on student progress

    We will continue to work to improve plans that support the academic, social, and emotional well-being of all students and families.  

    Additional information will be provided throughout the summer as details become available. Please visit our website for timely updates regarding the 2020/2021 school year.


    Karen Minshew
    Assistant Superintendent, Educational Services
