Welcome Back News

Village Elementary Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am thrilled to be welcoming your children back to school on August 25, 2022.

Community is the genuine care and compassion shared between staff, students, and parents. Village Elementary is a place where staff and families come together to ensure that the children entrusted into our care grow to be productive, confident, compassionate, members of a global society. I look forward to an amazing year!

On behalf of the Village Staff, I’d like to extend a warm WELCOME to our new families and a WELCOME BACK to those of you who are returning. I hope that your summer will be filled with fun and relaxation and that you make a lot of wonderful memories with family and friends. It’s hard to believe school is starting again in August, but, here we are, ready for a great year!

I look forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our students can achieve their highest potential. Our teachers understand that part of our students’ success relies heavily on the support offered both at school and at home and a strong partnership with you will make a difference in your child’s education. I am certain that our common responsibility for our students' success will provide fruitful outcomes as the year progresses no matter the challenges.

If you have not done so please review the 2022-2023 School Year Handbook that will be located on our website. In this handbook you will find useful information that can help us move forward with the first days of school. Additionally, please consider becoming involved in our parent community by joining the PTO, a Volunteer in a classroom, or a member of School Site Council (SSC) that helps guide decisions made here at Village. We are always open to finding ways to continue to involve parents/guardians to help create engaging learning environments that will promote success in our children.

Thank you for your continued support as we work together as a school community inspiring our students to strive for and achieve their goals.

Dr. Heidi Bergener
Principal, Village Elementary

Village Elementary 2022-2023 Focus

We are looking forward to a fantastic school year filled with lots of meaningful learning and engagement! We have some new programs and are excited to introduce daily universal breakfast, cold water/bottle filling stations on campus (bring a LABELED open mouthed reusable water bottle), TCI Social Studies Curriculum (Year 1 Implementation), Canvas learning platform (in place of Google Classroom), DIBELS reading assessments, Illuminate data analysis systems, Girls on the Run (new after-school program that is parent-volunteer lead,) and the continuation/resumption of favorite past practices such as Everyone a Reader (EAR), field trips, PTO Family Fun Nights (Bingo for Books, Movie Nights, etc.), assemblies, and after-school enrichment programs. We are also excited to WELCOME Preschool to VIllage!

A deeper dive...

Intentional Academic Discourse and Engaged Student Learning:

We will continue to engage this year in refining our practices in academic discourse and delve into what it looks, feels and sounds like to see our students engaged in meaningful learning that Connects, Champions and Challenges each student! Exciting work ahead!

WIN “What I Need” Time:

Our master schedule is designed to help us attend to the individual and small group needs of all of our students during intervention and extension "What I Need" (WIN) time. This year, we will look closely at our data that is collected and refine our "What I Need" (WIN) small group practices. We will look at whole grade level data, analyze and group students during WIN time, based on academic intervention or acceleration need. Using our whole grade level's experience and expertise, we will be able to use our collective instructional skill sets to working together, collaborate and share students, in order to best meet their needs. This will be incredibly important this year as we fill in gaps, remediate and accelerate learning for all.

Social Emotional Learning:

We are ready to meet the social-emotional needs of all of our students! Through our daily Harmony curriculum and classroom practices/procedures, we will use meet ups and circle ups, to help us grow and foster strong, trusting relationships that focus on inclusion, empathy, and compassion. When conflicts arise, through Restorative Practices, we will be able to resolve those conflicts and restore relationships with each other. To aide in this process and further support our students, staff and families, we have two (Military Family Life Counselors (MFLCs) and 2 Clinical Counselors on site. We firmly believe that our social emotional needs come first for each and every student. This solid foundation creates confident students at Village who feel safe, valued, loved and connected to school.


We will be using playworks again this year! Playworks is used at both elementary schools in CUSD. We plan to continue to provide high-energy, structured recess options that focus on developing positive relationships, sincere sportsmanship, and active play! We know that through play, kids learn to make friends, solve problems, and believe in themselves. Our robust team of PE and recess supervision are trained and are ready to start the year off with lots of fun and active play!

Health and Safety:

We will be following all San Diego County recommendations and mandates. As new information comes out, we will be sure to send it out to you. Indoor masking is highly recommended, but not required.

1:1 Computers: Students in grades 1st-5th will be given a chromebook laptop on the 1st day of school for their usage throughout the school year, if they already do not have one.

Mobile Device Protection Plan Notice for Families With CUSD Chromebooks

If your student has a CUSD issued Chromebook, you are encouraged to review and consider purchasing the OPTIONAL Mobile Device Protection Plan (MDPP) for the 2022-2023 school year. The annual plan is designed to cover accidental damage of CUSD Chromebooks including screen breakage. In addition, the plan will protect against spills, fire, flood, natural disasters, and theft/loss. Mobile hotspots, power cords, cables, and other accessories are not covered. Intentional damage, improper device storage, and misuse are not covered.

The cost of the plan is $20 per device per year. The plan must be purchased annually at the beginning of each school year or at the time of registration to be valid. A new plan must also be purchased if a student is provided with a replacement device due to damage/loss of their previous device. This money will be used to create a dedicated pool of funding to replace or repair covered technology. All money collected through the program will go into a special account that can only be used to replace or repair technology that is covered in the plan. We highly recommend this low-cost protection plan. To purchase a Mobile Device Protection Plan for your student, please use the instructions at the following link: Mobile Device Protection Plan Purchase Instructions.

Preschool Layout and Updates:

Preschool will be located in Room 701 for an AM and PM class.

TK will be in Room 709 in the AM and Preschool in the PM, sharing classrooms.

Arrival and Dismissal: For Staff and Parents

1st Day Protocol for Staff and Parents

  • Arrive Early! Parking will be tough. Please consider walking or riding your bike to campus.
  • No Village Elementary family parking or driving is allowed in the small parking lot between the softball field and football field. This is reserved for CUSD vehicles and Village staff. Village families and friends, please park on the neighboring streets. Additional parking is available near the BBMAC pool on 6th Street.
  • Parents are welcomed to line up with their students on the 1st day.
  • Parents, upon entering the campus, please look for your child's teacher's name/room number on the playground.
  • Line Up Locations for Day 1:

    TK, K, 1st, 3rd: Lower playground near 6th Street

    2nd, 4th 5th: Upper Playground near H Ave

  • Village Staff will be out early on Day 1, greeting students and helping direct foot traffic.
  • At 8:10 am for Village, we respectfully ask that you "kiss and go" at the line, and allow your student to enter the classroom without you. Support staff will be present to help those students (on the rare occasion) who might have a harder time saying goodbye to parents. Mr. Row, our Campus Security, will help guide parents. Let's keep his job easy!
  • Parents will then be asked to exit out of the gates they entered, allowing us to shut the gates and secure our campus.
  • If your student arrives after 8:10 am, please go through the front office for a tardy pass. Please be on time. Classes begin with their Harmony lessons and orientate the day for success. When your student is not there at the beginning of the day, they miss the best part!
  • Please do not leave your student unattended before 8:00 am. If childcare is needed, please see Champions for fees/programming.
  • Please monitor your student's behavior in front of school (no running on grass, playing tag, climbing trees, etc.)
  • Masks are recommended but not mandatory.

2nd Day and Following

  • In alignment with our safety protocols, on the 2nd day, parents will not be permitted past the gates upon arrival to school. Students will enter on their own and will be escorted, if needed, by school staff to their classroom
  • Parents will "kiss and go" at the gates and students will walk directly to their classrooms. Village will have many staff members available to help escort students to their classes for the first few weeks. Teachers and students in the younger grades will practice arriving to school and walking to class so that students are comfortable. We know it might be hectic the first week, so please have patience with us as we get each student to their classroom safely.
  • Village Staff will be out near the gates, greeting students and helping direct students to class.

Arrival and Dismissal Gates

Grades TK, K, 1st, 3rd- Enter at 6th Street Gates, near lower playground

Grades 2, 4, 5: Enter at H St Gates, near Flag Pole and Village Hall

Staggered Arrival Times:

Gates Open 8:00 am.

8:00 TK/K, 1st, 4th, 5th

8:05 2nd, 3rd

Staggered Dismissal Times M, T, TH, F:

2:45: K

2:50: 1st, 4th, 5th

2:55: 2nd/3rd

Staggered Dismissal Times Early Release Wednesday:

1:35 K

1:40: 1st-5th


Students are escorted out of the gates by their classroom teacher and students stay with their teacher until an adult has picked them up. If headed to Champions after school program, students are released to Champions staff near their classroom and are escorted from their classroom, to Village Hall with Champions supervision.


Students are escorted out of the gates by their classroom teacher, and are to either walk home by parent or alone, depending on parent preference. Please communicate with your child before the 1st day of school as to your individual preference.

Dismissal Caution:

  • We know the first 2 weeks are always more hectic at dismissal time and thus, takes much more time, and is chaotic. As we get to know faces and names, it will take much less time at dismissal, but this generally takes the first two weeks to see a change. We ask for your patience as we iron out details and ensure all of our students are connected with the right people after school.
  • After you pick up your student, we ask that you leave the dismissal area to help the congestion.
  • Please monitor your student's behavior in front of school (no running on grass, playing tag, climbing trees, etc.) This is especially important for the preschool and TK pick up times, when playing/loud voices outside take away from the learning inside the classroom.
  • Students who ride bikes or scooters, etc. need to walk their equipment while on the sidewalk in front of school on H and 6th streets.
  • Please discuss pick up plans with your child before they leave to school each day. Relaying messages to students throughout the day causes disruptions and can not be guaranteed and should be avoided.


  • Please follow the safest and most direct route to and from school (using crosswalks!) and follow directions of the school crossing guard.
  • Safety helmets are required for biking/scootering/skating to school.

IN CASE OF RAIN OR INCLEMENT WEATHER, students will enter gates and report directly to classrooms between 8:00 and 8:10. Students will also be dismissed at their normal gates and times if raining.

Pets/dogs are not permitted on school grounds for reasons of health and safety, unless they are part of a prearranged instructional program. We encourage everyone to leave their dogs at home when coming to and from school. If you choose to walk your dog to school, please be mindful that some children are allergic and/or fearful of pets. Pets also run the risk of encountering little hands and encroachment of space that is not wanted and react adversely. For the safety of all of our families, we ask that you stand away from the crowds when you are with your pet.

A day in the life of a student at Village....

Your child in grades K-5 can expect to have the following adults guiding learning this year:
  • One main grade-level classroom teacher
  • A guided-reading group teacher This could be one of the following: classroom teacher, Reading Specialist, or WIN time support/teacher
  • PE Coaches
  • Innovation Lab Teacher
  • Visual and Performing Arts Teacher
  • Spanish Teacher
  • Education Specialist/Case Manager/Speech/OT or APE (for students with IEPs)
  • Campus Supervisors and Instructional Assistants for support at recess, lunch, and in classrooms

Our Superhero team also includes the principal, vice principal, school psychologists, clinical counselors, and the support of Military Family Life Counselors on site, along with office, health, nutrition, and custodial teammates!

Coronado Unified School District has adopted curricula for our elementary schools to both challenge and support students with a variety of strengths and needs:

  • All grades set aside time for practices aligned with Harmony Social-Emotional Learningand which strengthen self awareness, emotional self regulation, and relationship building and maintenance.
  • Our Physical Education and recess programs are enriched by Spark lessons and Playworks approaches to collaboration and problem solving.
  • Bridges math includes exciting opportunities for students to talk about patterns and puzzles in math and apply concepts to games and real-world scenarios.
  • Benchmark English Language Arts curriculum is a balanced approach to reading, writing, and grammar. Our students benefit from placement in small reading groups with students at similar levels to challenge and grow their decoding, fluency, and comprehension skills.
  • Our classroom teachers expose students to hands-on experiences through Foss Science. In our Innovation Lab class enriched by Project Lead the Way curriculum, students practice engineering processes of design and construction, as well as coding and programming with Vex kits!
  • Students will experience social studies this year through our newly adopted TCI curriculum, which helps students understand communities local and global and their places in them.

Students' progress will be assessed throughout the year in English Language Arts and math, and students in grades 3-5 will participate in state testing in May. Family conferences and progress reports will be available for all students in late October; in the Spring, progress reports and conferences are offered to students who are approaching standards in one or more areas. Semester report cards are issued in January and June.

Breakfast & Lunch at Village Elementary School

**ALL students may access free breakfast and lunch every day.

**Students may bring healthy snacks from home.

Free Breakfast and Lunch Meals for All Enrolled Students for School Year 2022-2023

Beginning the School year 2022-2023, California will become the first state to implement a statewide Universal Meals Program for school children. Education Code 49501.5 requires public school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools serving students in grades TK-12 to provide two meals free of charge (breakfast and lunch) during each school day to students requesting a meal, regardless of their free or reduced-price meal eligibility.

Although meals will be free for all, the state continues to require school districts to distribute and collect free/reduced meal applications. Free/reduced-price meal applications can be downloaded by clicking on the "Important Forms and Links" to the left or by accessing them online by clicking here.

Free/reduced-price meal applications allow the district to collect essential data needed in order to qualify for additional school funding intended to support academic programs for your student. Additionally, free/reduced eligibility can qualify households for things such as discounted internet services, P-EBT benefits, discounted rates on your energy bill, and more. No applications will be necessary to receive the daily meals. For more information, click here.


  • Free breakfast is optional and provided every day in Village Hall PRIOR TO THE START OF SCHOOL at 7:40 AM for STUDENTS ONLY (families are NOT permitted to accompany their children; school personnel will supervise students).
  • Students in AM Champions care will eat breakfast, if they choose, in Champions.
  • Students accessing breakfast should be dropped off/arrive at school at 7:40 AM.
  • Breakfast ends at 8:00 AM; students will remain on campus to proceed to their class at 8:05.
  • Students MUST take a breakfast if they enter Village Hall for breakfast; they may not accompany friends or "hang out." All students not having breakfast should arrive at 8 AM and enter campus through designated gates.
  • No breakfast will be served after 7:55 am.

Snack: Please send your child with a daily healthy snack and refillable water bottle. School does not provide snacks for students.

Lunch: All students may access free lunch in Village Hall during their designated lunch time. Your child will benefit from knowing if they are bringing lunch from home or eating school lunch; please discuss expectations and review menus ahead of time. Families of students with allergies must provide medical information to the health office. We work in collaboration with Child Nutrition to ensure your child accesses only food that is safe and healthy for them.

School Menus: August 25th -October 14th, 2022

  • Bikes, Scooters, and Skates/Skateboards may be used for transportation to school
  • Sports Equipment: Students with practices after school may need to bring sports equipment to be left in a safe space on campus during school hours. Students may not play with equipment near campus during drop-off or dismissal.
