CUSSD Temporary Closure & Transition to Mobile Learning

May 29, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

The Leadership Team is happy to inform you that Christian Unified School District is moving forward with plans to reopen our campuses on August 18, 2020.  

In our districtwide planning process, we are considering what is best for our students academically, spiritually, socially and emotionally as we consider changes to campuses, classrooms, and school-wide activities.  You can expect an email from your school principal by July 31, 2020, detailing more information for the coming school year.  Our priority is your child's health and safety. 

Lastly, we feel so strongly about the importance of a solid Christian education during this time, that we are committed to doing what we can to ensure that any family that feels called to Christian Unified Schools, is provided the opportunity to make that desire a reality. This is especially true for our current Christian Unified families.  We are looking forward to getting our school community back together again.  Our offices are available to answer any questions you have, so please don’t hesitate to contact your school office. 

Have a great summer!

The CUSSD Leadership Team

Dear CUSSD Parents and Guardians,

We applaud you for your great efforts to support our transition to CUSSD Mobile Learning as we work together to continue your student’s education. It’s been a priority for our schools to provide a sense of normalcy for our students through a challenging time for our entire country. God remains faithful to our community and continues to equip our staff, students, and parents with the tools they need to march forward in faith through this uncertain time. 

We had originally planned to reopen our campus after Easter Break on April 14, 2020. However, our Federal, State and Local Governments have ordered school facilities in California to remain closed.  Christian Unified Schools will honor these orders and remain closed for on-campus activities and education for the remainder of the school year. 

We anticipated this order and are committed to continue our Mobile Learning Program through the end of the school year. Your Principal will communicate with you this week regarding the necessary details at your campus. We know you have many questions about important upcoming events, including upcoming performances and graduations.  Your Principal will continue to communicate with you about those events based on guidelines provided by our State and Local Government Officials. Please note that there will be no assignments or school-related expectations during our upcoming Easter Break (April 6-13). 

Although we realize it’s not the same as being in a classroom with teachers, we are proud of the parent, student, teacher partnership that has allowed us to provide an excellent Christian education during this difficult time. 

Thank you for your continued support and prayers for our CUSSD Community, our State and our Country.  We are all trusting that God is at work in this crisis. Our community remains steadfast and rests in the fact that we serve an all-powerful God and through Him we have the strength to overcome.  

Thank you for your trust and partnership, 

Your CUSSD Leadership Team

Dear CUSSD Parents,

For all of us, the coronavirus (COVID-19) has brought uncertainty and heightened anxiety, yet our Christian community is strong, and I am confident that we can and will navigate through this together with God’s help.  San Diego County has declared a local and public health emergency in response to COVID-19, and the San Diego Center for Disease Control has moved into the phase of limiting community spread, which involves protecting our school communities. For this reason, California’s largest districts and most schools in San Diego, have  made the decision to close temporarily.

Christian Unified Schools is blessed that we have a contingency plan in place so that your students will continue to receive a quality, Christian education through their current teachers, that can be completed at home. Each campus leader has been working on a contingency plan unique to their campus culture, and our District staff is spending the day today putting that plan in place.

The decision has been made that Christian Unified Schools campuses will be closed to students beginning Monday, March 16 through Spring Break which is scheduled for April 6 and returning Tuesday, April 14th. We will transition to mobile learning beginning Wednesday, March 18th. 

  • School offices will be open next week during regular hours school hours.
  • Teacher Professional Development Days are scheduled for Monday, March 16th and 17th (no school for students). This will allow for faculty and staff to fully prepare for the transition to mobile instruction beginning  on Wednesday, 18th.
    • Details will follow from your site leader by Monday, March 16th.
    • During the temporary closure of on campus facilities:
      • All academic and extra-curricular activities, rehearsals, meetings, practices, competitions, etc., are canceled or postponed;
      • All other events previously scheduled on our Campuses are canceled, postponed, or moved to mobile learning;
      • All non-essential, school-related travel is canceled (i.e., HST trip, field trips, etc.)
        All Athletic practices and contests are cancelled until April 6, 2020 or further notice (per SD City Conference).

We realize that this may cause an inconvenience to you and your family and will continue to pray for God’s guidance on how we can be flexible and support you and your family through this challenging time.  Thank you for your continued prayers and support as we work together to navigate through this extraordinary time and make decisions around what is best for our students and our entire school community.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We continue to closely monitor the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and will provide updates as necessary. There continue to be no known cases of coronavirus in San Diego County.

We understand that many parents and families are concerned about the potential spread of the virus in our schools and have asked at what point we would consider closing our site. Our charge under state law is to stay open as long as our site remains safe for students and staff. State and federal law empower the local public health officer with broad authority to take all actions needed to control the spread of an infectious disease, including orders to close schools. In our county, the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency has this authority and is the lead agency in managing the county’s response to this threat. We have been assured by public health officials that San Diego school closures are unwarranted at this time and could create unintended consequences that would hurt their efforts to protect our community. We will remain in close contact with public health officials throughout the duration of this threat and comply with all of their guidance.

Communities thrive when we all stay committed to each other’s well-being. We must never stigmatize anyone in our community based on national origin and unfortunately this is happening in our District. Students from other countries have not necessarily been exposed to or have COVID-19. Someone who has a cough or a fever does not necessarily have COVID-19. 

Our focus continues to be on prevention and preparation. We have an inventory of needed supplies, our staff is being trained on cleaning and disinfecting classrooms, and our teachers are watching for symptoms and providing guidance to families daily. You can support us by following these standard precautionary measures:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and use an alcohol based hand sanitizer when soap is not available;
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth and avoid close contact with people who are sick;
  • Stay home when sick and call your school to report fever and respiratory symptoms;
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, throw the tissue in the trash, and clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional, and continue to receive an annual flu shot.

We also want to share that on March 4, local health officials updated their guidelines for when a student should remain home. If your child has respiratory symptoms and fever of >100 F / >37.8 C (lowered from 100.4 F), they should remain home from school and other activities until they have no fever for 24 hours, without fever medication. In addition, if your child has severe productive coughs (i.e., spewing respiratory droplets) that are not typical for them, they should stay home. 

Christian Unified School District will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide regular updates as necessary.  Your student's safety is our primary concern and all decisions will be made with that in mind.  If you have questions about your site, please contact your school’s front office. We thank you for your cooperation, prayers, and support.
