February is Black History Month

National Black History Month is a time to celebrate and commemorate the roles African Americans have played in the history of our country; and to also acknowledge the profound contributions African Americans have made economically, culturally, and socially to the development of the United States. CVUSD is committed to honoring and valuing the legacy, experiences, and contributions of African Americans, not just during February, but all year through.

Phone Call Protocols for Students

For safety reasons, students may ONLY call home from the front office phone or health office phone. Students with cell phones MUST have them turned off and kept in a backpack at all times during the school day. Students with watches that have text or phone capabilities may not communicate with them during the school day. Students who violate these standards of conduct will lose the privilege of bringing these devices on campus.

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.

CVUSD Invention Convention

All 3rd-5th grade students are invited to participate in CVUSD’s fifth Invention Convention sponsored by Student Support Services. Invention Convention is a showcase where students display inventions that they have created. Students may work alone or in a group of 2-4 students to identify a problem to solve, come up with a solution that can be invented, create the invention and then share it at a convention. This is a great opportunity for students who are creative, curious, who enjoy tinkering and innovating, and who are adept at solving problems!

To register for the 2023 Invention Convention, click HERE. Registration will close on Thursday, February 16th at 5 PM.
