August 10, 2020 - Childcare Update

Due to Governor Newsom's Executive Orders for mandatory distance learning, CVUSD recognizes the critical need to provide quality distance learning support, recreation, enrichment, and care for our community both to support the wellbeing of our children and working parents.  We prepared our schools based on the most conservative safety guidelines provided by CA Public Health and obtained all necessary supplies for staff and students to adhere to safety, hygiene, and protection measures.  We also proved that we could provide learning and enrichment safely during our summer programs at all Cajon Valley Schools. See video below.

Flexibility for districts to provide in person programs and care expired with the governor's latest orders.  Our own San Diego County Public Health Officer, Dr. Wilma Wooten supports continuing our program but told us it is not her call and that absent a waiver or a change to the Governor's Orders, we must stop.  San Diego Public Health and County Supervisors are lobbying the Governor for flexibility and we are hopeful that we will be able to have students back to school.  Thus we are planning and preparing our program to serve families as soon as permission is granted.  A CVUSD Extended Day for distance learning support, enrichment, and care interest survey for families and employees is linked below.  We will continue to provide updates as information becomes available. CVUSD Extended Day Interest Survey
