A Letter from Principal Montalvo
Dear Caldwell Heights Families,
We are excited to welcome students back on campus this week and next! We have missed our students' smiling faces. With keeping the safety of our students in mind, we have created new processes for our campus. I am including a sneak peek into our new systems for you below. We would appreciate your support in reinforcing these protocols with your children when we return in-person.
If your student is struggling to get their required asynchronous assignments completed, here is a checklist to help support your child. Remember, these assignments are required to be completed for grades.
Here is the direct contact information for staff who can reach out to you immediately for support with curriculum, student learning needs, mental health care, behavior supports, counseling resources, daily schedule and routines assistance or anything else you need.

Welcome! My name is Macy Lane and I am the new IB Coordinator at Caldwell Heights! This year will be a memorable one for many reasons, but especially because it will be a year of inquiry, discovery and learning new things.
Our IB Learner Profile Attribute for the month of September is knowledgeable. Our CHE Eagles can demonstrate their knowledge by sharing with you the interesting things they’re learning and inquiring about things they want to know more about. You can spark their knowledge by encouraging their questions and supporting their passions. Knowledge is power! Let’s have a strong year! #bettertogether

School Supply List
Saying goodbye on the first day at drop off!
All car riders will enter through the back door and will be guided to their classrooms. All of our bus riders that will be eating breakfast will enter through the front doorway. All other bus riders will be guided to their designated doors to go straight to class. Prek-2 students will enter the building on Eagle Street, and 3rd-5th graders will enter the building at our LID entrance. Our greeters will be encouraging social distancing and reminding students of the proper way to wear their masks. They will also ensure that all students get to their classroom safely.
Here is an example of the signs we have posted throughout our building reminding everyone the importance of socially distancing.
This is how we have marked our hallways to indicate traffic flow and to encourage social distancing.
We will not be using our cafeteria to eat breakfast or lunch. This is an example of how we will direct students to wait in a socially distanced line to pick up food to take back to their classroom to eat.
Hand Washing Stations
Here is an example of the signs that are posted at our stations to show the students how to properly wash their hands. There will be two planned hand washing breaks per day for every class.
We have loads of sanitizer. Each classroom has a tub filled with sanitizer and wipes. We also have numerous hand sanitizer stations throughout our building.
Water Bottle Fillers
Our water fountains are closed. In their place we have brand new water bottle fillers. I highly encourage you to send a water bottle with your child daily. They will be able to easily fill it up throughout the day.
