Chula Vista High School - Home of Champions!
Week 3 August 1st to August 7th
Message from the Principal
I hope you had a great weekend. As mentioned last week, our counseling team has been working diligently to balance classes and address schedule change requests in a timely manner. Each year, changes to our course offerings happen due to several factors, such as student enrollment, new program requirements and changes in personnel. These changes unfortunately can lead to changes in student's schedules. Typically, our window to make most of these changes is the first ten days of school. This year, due to issues with our network that affected Infinite Campus, the District has extended that window by an additional two days. We ask that you please be patient with us as we work to balance classes.
I also want to remind students that our Fall sports season is underway. In the Fall we field the following athletic teams:
Men's Water Polo
Men's/Women's Cross Country
Women's Field Hockey
If you are interested in playing a sport, please stop by the ASB or see our Athletic Director Coach Wilson. Instructions on how to get cleared to participate are found HERE.
Lastly, please make note that our campus opens at 8:00am every day. If students arrive earlier than 8:00am, they can enter campus as early as 7:15am. Students will be provided with a safe, supervised area within our Before/After School program, The Vault. To access this FREE program, students must enter through the Youth Center main gate off of L Street. Take advantage of this free service.
Have a great third week of school!

Student Drop-off and Gate Locations
Gates will be open for students to enter campus at 8:00am. We will have four entry points with designated drop off areas for students. Those are marked on the map with a blue arrow:
#1 North 100, drop off point is the driveway in the front of the 100 building.
#2 South 100, drop off point is the parking lot in front of the GYM.
#3 Youth Center, drop off point is the Youth Center parking lot on L street.
#4 K Street Gate, drop off point is on K street.
These areas will also serve as pick up points for students after school. For the safety of all, please make sure you observe all traffic patterns and rules.
SUHSD COVID Protocols
Please make sure you also familiarize yourself with our COVID protocols:
- When indoors vaccinated staff and all students are strongly recommended to wear a face mask.
- Unvaccinated staff and adult visitors must wear masks when in the presence of others indoors.
- In classrooms with immunocompromise staff or students, we are asking the classroom communities to please support each other by wearing masks when indoors.
An exception where staff or students will be required to wear masks at this point is after they are returning to school following exposure to COVID. These additional protocols are our best way to ensure we can keep our students and staff on campus and engaged in learning this school year.
