Messages from Coronado Middle School
March 18, 2020
Hello Triton Families,
Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we navigate this challenging time. CUSD administrators have been meeting to discuss the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19. We understand the closing of all schools is challenging; however, our highest priority is the health and well-being of our staff, students, families and community.
As new communication is provided from the state, CUSD will continue to follow the guidance of the CDE (Califorrnia Department of Education) and the HHSA (Health and Human Services Agency). Please visit the CUSD website for updates. https://coronadousd.net/about/covid-19-information/
At this time, we are continuing to offer optional enrichment. Many teachers have posted information and resources to PowerSchool pages.

Educational Content on TV, Online During School Closures
In partnership with the San Diego County Office of Education and San Diego Unified School District, KPBS is streaming TK-12 educational programming on its public television channel and opening access to its digital library of resources for students, families, teachers, and the community during school closures.
The "At-Home Learning: Where Children Matter" initiative launched Monday, March 16, will bring 12 hours of state standards-aligned television programming scheduled by grade level, and free access to a digital library of educational resources. KPBS programming and PBS LearningMedia California educational resources are free to families, educators, and the community to support learning during the school closures.
With most schools in San Diego County closed in an effort to curb the potential transmission of COVID-19, this partnership works to ensure students and families have access to robust learning materials.
If you are a public school educator using these resources, remember that any instruction must support all students. If you provide educational services to the general student population during a school closure, you must also ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to the same opportunities.
Beginning Monday, March 16, KPBS 2 will broadcast 12 hours of programming selected to meet the TK-12 California educational standards. The programming will be from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. in viewing blocks by grade level:
- 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. - Grades TK-3
- 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. - Grades 4-8
- 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. - Grades 9-12
How to Watch
A student does not need access to a computer or the Internet to watch. Tune into KPBS 2 with an antenna at channel 15.2, or on Cox 811 or Spectrum 1277. The programming and digital content is also accessible via mobile. Direct TV, Dish, and AT&T U-verse do not carry KPBS 2. If you have this service, change the input on your TV to use the antenna and watch over the air on channel 15.2.
California students and educators have immediate access to an online library of free educational resources from PBS LearningMedia California, including videos, associated lesson plans, hosted training sessions, and self-guided how-to resources for teachers. These will accompany PBS's trusted programs and align with current classroom standards.
How to Get Started
Educators and parents can join a 15-minute webinar to learn how to use PBS LearningMedia California. Live webinars are hosted twice daily through Bay Area public media station KQED.
PBS LearningMedia is committed to inclusion, diversity, and accessibility. With this in mind, PBS is continuously taking steps to improve the website to meet online usability and design standards recommended WCAG 2.0 AA and other standards outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The site works with screen readers and meets contrast requirements for the visually impaired. For assistance with the site visit the PBS LearningMedia help webpage.
