Wildwood Weekly

August 27, 2022

And...We're Off!

The first few days of school are always an exciting time for students, staff, and families alike. Our collective efforts resulted in a Tigerific start to the 2022-2023 school year. We encourage all of you to take some time this weekend to celebrate a successful first week of school and recharge for the weeks ahead.

This year, our Wildwood Newsette digital newsletter will take on a new look as the "Wildwood Weekly" - a weekly communication published every weekend to highlight the happenings of the prior week and update you about what's coming up in the weeks ahead. Please look for the "Wildwood Weekly" in your email inbox every weekend as it will be the main school-to-home communication from the office this school year. Our classroom teachers will continue using the Wednesday folders to send home student work and occasional school/PTA hard copy communications.

Enjoy your weekend, Tiger community. We've ALL earned it!

~ Mr. Lynch

- Important CVUSD Information -

Complete Your Emergency Information TODAY

All CVUSD families (new and returning) must complete/update the required Emergency Card Information each school year. Thank you to those of you who have already done so. This annual update MUST be completed ASAP in order for us to have the most current information on file in the event of an emergency.

All updates may be completed online via the Q-Parent Connect Portal. Complete details and instructions are available here. Once you login as a parent, select the "Annual Updates" link at the top right portion of the screen. Then, edit and submit each portion of the update.

Meal Application Form


School meals for the 2022-2023 school year will be available to all students at no charge. Although all students will receive free meals through the duration of this school year, we request for all families to complete this Online Free / Reduced Meal Eligibility for School Year 2022-2023 form, as this form affects a variety of areas unrelated to school meals, including school funding, college application fees, SAT fees, bus passes and more. Even if your child does not plan to eat school lunches, it is important to fill out this form to help ensure our schools and families receive the available resources.

Student Accident & Sickness Insurance

The safety of our students is of critical importance to all of us and we want to protect them from injury. Please click here for the district letter. Click on this link for information on Student Accident and Sickness Insurance.

High-Speed Internet for All

High-speed internet has become a necessity of modern life, which is why the Ventura County Office of Education is supporting a statewide effort to make it available to everyone.

The California Broadband Council is spreading the word that low-income families can receive a $30 monthly discount on home internet service and a $100 discount on a computer or tablet. There are about 80,000 households in Ventura County who are eligible for these discounts that haven’t yet applied.

More information about the program is available at www.internetforallnow.org.

Keeping Our Students Safe on Campus

Along with our Raptor system that currently screens all visitors that enter the Wildwood campus, a new layer of security is on its way in the form of a buzzer system that manages the locking system on the front doors through a 1-way camera and 2-way speaker system controlled by office staff. This system has been tested and refined at a few CVUSD elementary school sites and is scheduled to be installed at all CVUSD elementary school sites by mid-October, 2022.

(Just a few more) School Site Council Members Needed!

We currently have openings for the following positions on our SSC team.

  • (DAC) District Advisory Council Representative
  • (AADAC) African American District Advisory Council Representative
The commitment is usually just 1-2 hours per month, but the impact is significant. You can even join our 1-hour monthly Zoom meeting from the comfort of your home. Please shoot me an email to express interest and/or learn more at klynch@conejousd.org.

Visitors & Volunteers

If you would like to volunteer on campus this school year, please complete and return the Volunteer Registration Authorization Packet that was sent home with students on the first day of school. Attach a copy of your license/ID to the packet, or we will make a copy for you in the office on your first visit. All volunteers will also need to show proof of vaccination upon arrival. Unvaccinated volunteers will need to show negative COVID tests taken within a week of their service on campus.

All adults entering the campus during school hours must sign in electronically with their picture ID in the front office and obtain a visitor or volunteer badge/sticker to be worn at all times while on campus. All volunteers who work with students must have a current TB test or a Risk Assessment Questionnaire on file as well.


If your child will be absent or arriving late for any reason, please remember to call our office or leave a message on our attendance line at (805) 492-3531 before 8:30am. Be sure to state the date and reason for your child’s absence or late arrival, and your child’s teacher or room number. Any unexcused absence is counted as a truancy. Students are allowed only three truancies per year before action is taken. Planning ahead with your child will also help to avoid unnecessary tardiness. Students who arrive on time feel better about themselves and perform better in the classroom.

We want to remind all Tiger families that if your student is exhibiting any of the following symptoms, please keep them home until symptom(s) are improving and they are fever-free without any fever-reducing medications for 24 hours.

· *Fatigue/muscle or body aches

· *Congestion/runny nose

· *Nausea/vomiting/diarrhea

· *Sore throat

· *Headache

· *Fever 100.4 F or higher

· *Cough

· *Difficulty breathing

· *Loss of taste or smell

It is important that all positive cases of COVID-19 are reported to the health office. If your student tests positive for COVID-19, we need to know in order to ensure we are supporting your student through their recovery. The health and safety of our student body and staff is a top priority. If you have any questions or concerns related to COVID-19, please reach out to our office.
