Please Stay Cool!

Chula Vista High School will be having minimum days on Monday and Tuesday due to the fact that they do not have air-conditioned classrooms. A phone call was made to students, parents, and staff. We will be on a regular schedule.

The admin will be meeting tomorrow morning to figure out a plan for our teachers who are in non-conditioned classrooms. We will give you an update during our morning announcements.

We will also have to device a plan for our visitors from OPUS; they were going to use the 400 building for their camp but in lieu of our heat wave, we need to provide them an opportunity to meet in air conditioned classrooms. Please email me if you are willing to offer your class for our OPUS group.

Thank you for your support,
