Important COVID Reminder

Please remember that if anyone in your household is Positive for COVID-19, everyone in the household must stay home and CAN NOT come to school (unless fully vaccinated/boosted if eligible-but please still call the office to confirm). An example of this is that if a parent/sibling is positive, the children cannot come to school. You must call the school at 951-739-5820, so we can go over the protocols and return dates with you. The office is open from 7:45-3:45.

If you are absent any days, please make sure to call the office to clear your child’s absence. If they are left uncleared, it will turn into a truancy.

If you are COVID positive, have been exposed or are having symptoms, please do not come into the office. If you call the office, they can assist you by taking materials you may need to the car or leaving them outside for you to pick up.

With everyone’s help we will be able to keep everyone safe and healthy!

Thank you,
Mrs. Johnson

CNUSD Connection Newsletter

Dear CNUSD Staff and Families,

Yesterday, Jan. 12, 2022 CDPH published updated guidance in the areas of contact tracing and classroom closures. CNUSD has updated our safety plan to align with the recent updates. Please see the summary of changes below:

CONTACT TRACING UPDATE:

  • We will continue to isolate COVID-19 positive and symptomatic individuals.
  • Notification of potential exposure to a COVID-19 positive individual will be sent to groups of potentially exposed students (e.g., classmates, teammates, cohorts, etc.) – The State is referring to this practice as “group-tracing”.
  • Contact tracing to identify individual close contacts is discontinued.

IF YOU RECEIVE AN EXPOSURE LETTER...

  • Your child may remain in school unless they develop symptoms or they test positive for COVID-19.
  • Testing is highly encouraged. (click here for testing availability & information)
  • If your child develops symptoms or tests positive, please isolate at home and notify their school site immediately.
  • Students who are currently quarantining due to close contact at school and are asymptomatic may return to school without finishing their quarantine period.

SCHOOL CLOSURE CONSIDERATIONS UPDATE:

  • The State’s updated guidance requires that all students must have access to safe, full in-person instruction, with as much instructional time as possible.
  • Temporary school closures should be considered only after conferring with local health officials.
  • There is no specific case threshold at which the State recommends an immediate temporary closure of a classroom or school. Instead, the process will be guided by local epidemiology, with particular attention paid to concern for in-school transmission.

MASK REMINDER & UPDATE:

As a reminder, masks are one of the most effective and simplest safety mitigation layers to prevent in-school transmission of COVID-19. SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is primarily transmitted via airborne particles.

  • Surgical 3-ply disposable face masks are available at all of our school sites for students and staff members.
  • Employees may request a mask with filtration (KN95 or N95).
  • Masks MUST be worn properly over the mouth and nose at all times when indoors as the Omicron variant is highly contagious.

Student Test Kits Available

If you were not able to pick up your student testing kit yet, you can stop in the office at any time to pick yours up. It is 1 testing kit per student. Please make sure a parent or guardian picks up the kit. Masks are required to enter the office. Office hours are 7:45-3:45.

100 Mile Club Paused

Due to the new restrictions regarding parent volunteers on campus, 100 Mile Club will be paused for the time being. Once volunteers are allowed back on campus, we will start back up. We are sorry for any inconvenience but want to make sure we are being as safe as possible for students and staff.

Masks!

Please have your child bring a fitted mask to school every day. Surgical masks are recommended but cloth masks are ok. Mesh masks or masks with holes are not an approved mask. We do have masks available for students whose masks are lost or broken, but it is very helpful when students bring a mask from home.

Meet our counselor!

Hello Wilson Families!

My name is Katie Vela, and I am returning from maternity leave as the full School Counselor at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. I am so excited to be back at Wilson this year to work with you and your students. I am grateful to have had Ms. F as the substitute counselor while I was out to support our Wilson students, families and staff. I look forward to continuing the good work she has been doing on campus this year!

The following will continue to be offered for the 2021-2022 school year:

● Classroom guidance lessons for all grade levels with social, emotional and academic focus.

● Small group counseling sessions, with parent permission, for students focusing on: divorce, grief, social skills, anger management or other data driven groups to provide support.

● Individual counseling, with parent permission, to help students with managing emotions, behaviors or other individualized social and emotional challenges.

(Due to large caseloads, individual counseling is on a limited basis with limited sessions.)

If a child needs services that are outside the scope of school counseling, an outside community referral can be provided.

If you have any questions, please contact me by email at Katie.vela@cnusd.k12.ca.us. You can also consult with your child’s teacher or an administrator regarding a counseling referral. I am so thankful to be back at Wilson this school year and I look forward to working with you and your students!

Sincerely,

Katie Vela (Mrs. Katie)

Woodrow Wilson Elementary School Counselor

Parking Lot

Please remember that the parking lot in not a place to drive through to drop off your child. Safety is our number one priority and the parking lot has been quite congested with cars and kids walking through. Also, please do not use the bus circle as this is for busses only. We appreciate your cooperation to help keep everyone safe.

Arrival

Please remember, the school does not open for drop off until 8:15 for those students eating breakfast and for 8:30 for all other students. There is no supervision before 8:30.

Students need to be through the gate by 8:45 in order to be on time for school!

Thank you for continuing to pull all the way up in the circle. Please make sure to stay in your car at all times. If you need to help your child get out or into the car, please park in order to help the circle continue to flow.

As you are driving to school, please be aware of the crosswalks as students and families are crossing. Please make sure to fully stop and check for families.

We appreciate your help.

No Cell Phone/Smart Watch Use on Campus

Please make sure to talk to your child about the policy of NO CELL PHONE/Smart Watch use on campus. Cell phones should be turned off and put inside students backpacks all day. They may not bring them out for any reason. Students can use their cell phones after they leave the campus. If a student has their cell phone out or uses their smart watch to make phone calls, it will be confiscated and parents will have to pick up the item.

Thank you for talking to your child.

Lost & Found

Please come to the office to check for any missing items in the Lost & Found, we have a lot of items each month. . The Lost and Found will be donated the last day of each month.

The Wilson Way

Students have been earning PBIS Points for following The Wilson Way; being respectful, responsible and safe around school and in the classroom.

Every month at the beginning of the month, the store will be open for shopping for 2 weeks. Then the last 2 weeks of the month will be for bagging prizes and delivering to classrooms.


Thank you to everyone who helped with donations for the Eagles Nest!

How To Shop The Eagles Nest - PBIS store

Donations Needed for Student Store!

We are up and running with our PBIS Points! Students all have a lanyard they wear daily with their name and bar code for staff to scan and give points when they are showing RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE and SAFE behaviors. They will use their points to purchase various items in the student store "The Eagles Nest".

We are in need of donations to keep our store up and running. Please see the Amazon Wish List below to send a donation to Wilson for The Eagles Nest. Thank you for your support.

Broken Devices

It is important to know that all CNUSD issued devices (i.e. laptops) are the student's responsibility. We are speaking to our students about how to take care of their devices and ask that families do the same at home. If a student has a device that has been damaged, the fine to replace the laptop is $200.00.



If you have any questions regarding devices or technology, please visit the CNUSD website for information and assistance. Click HERE to visit the page.


The page states the following regarding damaged laptops:

"The parent/guardian is responsible for any damages or costs incurred as a result of the student’s use and possession of the device. As outlined in board policy BP8500, the Board of Education intends that technology resources provided by the District be used in a safe, responsible, and proper manner in support of instructional programs for the advancement of student learning."

No Early Outs

We discourage checking your kids out the last 20 minutes of the day due to teachers assigning homework, cleaning up for the day and closing their school day. We appreciate your help in this manner.
