Village News

Lost and Found: We have ordered mobile lost and found carts. Starting next week, we will be placing the lost and found items on FRIDAYs in front of the school all day. Please continue to place names on all items so they can be easily returned to students. Of the 25 items collected this week, only three of the items had names on them.


Masks: On Monday the California Health and Human Services Agency hosted a press conference briefing on Covid-19. Although the state mask mandate for general public settings expired on Tuesday of this week, guidance has not changed for public school settings.The school mask mandate is still in effect and CUSD will continue adherence to CDPH guidelines. I understand this has been of great interest to our community, and the state has promised an update by February 28.

Press Release: CUSD Announces Expansion Of Transitional Kindergarten Classes Next School Year

CUSD Announces Expansion Of Transitional Kindergarten Classes Next School Year



Coronado Unified School District is excited to announce the expansion of Transitional Kindergarten (TK) beginning in the 2022-23 school year. TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten experience. Four-year-olds who turn five between September 2 and February 2 are eligible to enroll in TK this coming school year.


Half-day (3 hour) TK classes, with a 12:1 student teacher ratio, will be offered at both Village and Silver Strand Elementary Schools. Currently the classes are scheduled for the morning but depending on enrollment could also be offered in the afternoon.


Based on research indicating that an early and strong foundation for learning matters in long term student success, California recently passed legislation expanding funding for early childhood education. TK is still optional but provides an additional option for parents and serves as a stepping stone between preschool and kindergarten.


Parents and guardians interested in learning more about the program should complete a pre-registration survey, by March 4, 2022 to receive additional information/updates about student enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year. Link to Survey: https://bit.ly/3gKHEAU

For Village Students Grades 3, 4 and 5- Please see CAASPP Testing information below

Village CAASPP Testing dates will be sent out in mid-March. Usually Village tests students in grades 3rd-5th during the month of May. More information to come!

Bikes and E-Bikes:

Bikes and E-Bikes: Please remind your student to follow all traffic laws while riding their bikes to school. Many students with E-bikes are running stop signs, going extremely fast, and on many occasions have almost hit a pedestrian or caused an accident. Our top priority is to keep our students and community safe at all times.
