Dear Cavalier Families,


It is with heartfelt gratitude that I say "thank you" for making my first semester at Chula Vista Middle one of the most memorable in my career. In this short time, I was able to connect to many students and parents in our efforts to provide a continuous quality education during hybrid learning.

The pandemic has certainly made us pivot in how we conduct "school" and has definitely refocused our staff on what is essential. This week as we will send our 8th graders to high school, we will continue to plan for our incoming 7th and next year's 8th graders. We are always here to help and support our families.

I hope all of you have a restful summer break.

This week's announcements:

Below are items shared with students and parents last week regarding 8th grade promotion. Please review them so you are familiar with the information. Attending the promotion ceremony is not mandatory, but we hope to see you on Thursday, June 3 at Chula Vista High School's John Rindone Stadium.

Attendance is based on the asynchronous (live) portion of each class. Students must log in with their teacher and remain in the online class until dismissed. Every class has an asynchronous (not live) portion in which they can finish their work. Students should be working throughout the day, much like the hours they kept when we were attending school in person.

A testing site is now open at the Youth Center on L St on CVHS's campus on Thursdays from 9:30 - 4:30. Here is the Registration Form and Consent Form Link . They do not email results, please plan to wait 30 minutes after your test to receive your results. Also, lunch time is impacted as the staff there take their lunch so the wait time may be longer than usual. In addition, since it is open to the community, after school hours athletes and coaches who need tests also show up impacting the line(s). Please plan ahead accordingly. The old Sears building at the Chula Vista Mall is also another test site. Here is the registration link.

Here is a link to Frequently Asked Questions regarding the COVID vaccine and here is the link for all COVID Testing Sites. We all know someone who has been personally affected by this virus.
