Message from Superintendent Mueller

Good afternoon,

This week marks one month since the school year started, and teaching and learning are in full swing. More than ever we appreciate the voices and energy that our students bring to our campuses!

Our Covid numbers remain low and our CUSD Covid Team is working hard to manage the cases efficiently and professionally with minimal disruption to learning. Thank you to everyone for your diligence in adhering to Covid protocols.

We have been working on some very important initiatives in order to serve our school community. Please read details here:

Thought Exchange Survey

We want to hear from you! With the school year underway we are focused on academic achievement; math instruction, STEM and VAPA enrichments, and college and career readiness. We want to know what areas our stakeholders want to learn more about. Please click on the link to participate in the survey/discussion.

Traffic Update

We are working in collaboration with our partners at the Coronado Police Department to address traffic issues and streamline the drop-off and pick-up process at our Village school sites.

The message below is from the Coronado Police Department:

Once again welcome back to all students, parents, teachers, and staff members to the 2021-22 school year. As the year continues, we at the Coronado Police Department would like to provide some traffic safety information as well as a friendly reminder of some rules of the road. We would like to remind all parents and staff that white painted curbs are for passenger drop off and pick up only and vehicles must not be left unattended when temporarily stopped along a white curb. Additionally, when pulling into the drop off zones, vehicles are encouraged to pull all the way forward prior to dropping students off to maintain the flow of vehicle traffic and avoid traffic backups. A reminder also that red painted curbs are for no stopping or parking and are reserved for emergency vehicles only and are not designated drop off locations.

Please do not double park or drop off a student in the lane of traffic as it can cause traffic backups as well as it is not safe for the student to exit the vehicle in the lane of traffic.

Lastly, many parents and students ride their bicycles to school so please check your mirrors and blind spots prior to leaving the curb and entering the lane of traffic.

We thank you for your cooperation in ensuring our students, parents, staff, and community are safe!

Mobile App

Wednesday was the ‘official’ launch of our ‘Coronado USD’ mobile application. Please download and explore it today! App features include a convenient calendar section that lists school events and meetings, staff directories, news, and direct links to the district website. You can even customize the filters to include which school site information you want to be displayed.

Have a great weekend,

Karl J. Mueller
