Wildwood Weekly

January 8, 2023

Congratulations, Wildwood!

I am pleased to announce that Wildwood Elementary has just been awarded the prestigious 2023 California Distinguished Schools Award. This distinction remains one of the important ways to celebrate exceptional schools for their innovation, talent, and success in supporting students.

We give a HUGE Tiger ROAR to former Principal Donna Vollmer and all of the students, staff members, volunteers, and families who have worked individually and collectively to make Wildwood Elementary a truly distinguished school.

To learn more about this recognition, take a look at this article from yesterday's VC Star and scroll down to the bottom of the article to see our school's name at the top of the list!

Tags on Personal Items

Just a reminder to please place your children's names on jackets, water bottles, lunch boxes, etc. Our Lost and Found is filling up again, and labels are the best way to ensure that your student's items find their way back to their proper home.

Free Online Tutoring to all California Residents - Available 24/7

As previously communicated, the state of California has made available 24/7 free online tutoring through a new initiative offering homework help in every K-12 subject.

To make accessing this resource even easier, the CVUSD has added a link (Brainfuse icon) to this free online tutoring program directly in each CVUSD student’s Classlink account.

Health and Safety

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.

Free COVID Test Kits

The district has once again provided free COVID tests for students. Please come by the front office if you would like a 2-pack at home test kit.
