Cajon Valley Union School District Update (July 14, 2021)
Dear Cajon Valley Family,
The Cajon Valley Union School District drew national attention when it reopened schools for Emergency Childcare for Essential Workers in April of 2020. Building on the success of this program and based on input from families that parents needed to work and that their students were struggling amidst social and emotional isolation from Governor Newsom's shelter in place orders, Cajon Valley reopened all 27 of its schools in June of 2020 using federal stimulus money to create a free Summer Enrichment Program open to all Cajon Valley students. This summer with #CampCajon, Cajon Valley provided free before and after camp care as well as specialty programs based on the interests of the children and at the suggestions from parents.
Earlier this week, Governor Newsom and California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released updated guidance for K-12 schools. The California guidance is more restrictive than updates made last week to the K-12 schools’ guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
California officials decided that all schools must continue to require that masks be worn indoors in school settings and recommend continuing layered mitigation strategies like screening testing, ventilation, handwashing and respiratory etiquette, staying home when sick and getting tested, contact tracing in combination with quarantine and isolation, and cleaning and disinfection.
We’ve received several calls and letters concerning these updates and specifically how Cajon Valley Union School District will handle the mask mandates for students and staff. As documented at the beginning of this update, Cajon Valley relies heavily upon the input and collaboration of our students, parents, staff, and community members.
Our plan is to continue meeting with our advisory groups, allow all stakeholders the opportunity to provide input, and hold special board meeting(s) for district students, parents, staff, and community members to provide public comment on these important issues that affect all of us.
On Behalf of our Governing Board and Cabinet, we are grateful for the privilege to serve you.
Dr. David Miyashiro, Superintendent

Cajon Valley Sycuan Joint Vaccination Clinic.
On Saturday, March 13, Cajon Valley Union School District had the pleasure of hosting a Vaccination Party, all made possible by our generous community partners, Sycuan. Shortly after announcing the event, we had 120 volunteers that included staff and vital school volunteer groups, PTA, School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Councils. Cajon Valley Health Specialists came together with the Sycuan Medical and Dental staff under the exceptional leadership of the Sycuan staff to administer 570 vaccines! The cheers, expressions of appreciation, and relief were heard and felt throughout the day. Sycuan brought more than vaccines with them on Saturday, they brought hope and confidence to our staff as they transition to a full 5-day a week school program for our students.
