  • Lock-down Incident on April 6, 2016

    Please be advised that we received a phone call from the Sheriff’s Department that we needed to go on lock down due to police activity in the neighborhood this afternoon.  The lockdown was lifted about an hour later.  It appears that the dispatch center mistook Founders Park in Chino Hills for our next door neighbor, Founders Park.   There was police activity near Founders Park in Chino Hills, not Chino. We are grateful for your patience and we always welcome the opportunity to practice our emergency response.  Again, thank you for your patience.

  • Campus Incident 2/25/16

    This is to inform you of an incident that occurred on our campus today. I want to make sure you have accurate information and dispel any rumors you may have heard about the incident. A student reported seeing a handgun in another student’s backpack and reported that to an adult. Security and school staff conducted an investigation of the student’s backpack and found a handgun. Security took control of the gun without incident. Chino Police Department is handling the investigation. We take this incident seriously, and I ask your help in addressing the important issue of student safety. Please check your child’s backpack each day and make sure that they are bringing to school only those items that belong here. In order for Cal Aero Preserve Academy to remain a safe haven for children, we must all work together – parents, staff, and community members – to provide the quality environment that our children deserve. If you have any further questions, please feel free to call my office. Thank you for your support and assistance in keeping our campus safe for children.

  • Cal Aero Preserve Academy’s Kindergarten through Sixth graders will go on year-round schedule in 2016-2017

    In order to accommodate projected student growth, Cal Aero Preserve Academy’s kindergarten through sixth grade students will be on a year-round schedule beginning in summer 2016.

    The school board approved a resolution at its June 25 meeting to transition the younger students at the kindergarten through eighth grade school in south Chino on a four-track, continuous school program. Seventh and eighth graders will continue on the traditional schedule for school that typically begins in mid-August and ends in early June.

    Under the four-track system, three-fourths of the kindergarten through sixth graders will be in class at any given time during the year. The other one-fourth will be off track.

    Students will be assigned to one of four tracks and will be in class or off track, depending on that track’s schedule.

    Cal Aero was designed to operate as a year-round campus serving approximately 1,200 students when it opened in fall 2009. However, the school opened with a traditional schedule because of lower than anticipated enrollment as a result of the economic downturn.

    In recent years, the Preserve residential development surrounding the school has grown, along with student enrollment.

    Chino Valley Unified School District recently added 10 portable classrooms on the campus to temporarily accommodate the growth.

    A year-round schedule was proposed for Cal Aero when district officials projected there would be 1,400 students at the campus in the 2016-2017 school year.

    School district officials met with more than 400 Cal Aero parents earlier this year to detail why year-round might be necessary, other options for handling school growth, and what year-round it like. Assistant Superintendent Pat Miller, who previously worked as a school administrator under the year-round program, shared her positive experience with the program.

    Mrs. Miller said parents will discover that every track has its benefits.

    A calendar for the year-round schedule has not yet been determined.

    More meetings with parents and staff members are planned, Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph said.
