Upcoming Events


  • Solar Eclipse Information
    As you know, on Monday, August 21,2017, the United States will experience the first total solar eclipse to travel from coast to coast in nearly a century. The rarity of this eclipse has created a lot of excitement amongst Chino Valley Unified teachers, with many planning to use the eclipse as a learning opportunity for kids. With that excitement has come questions about how to ensure students’ safety and what options the schools can use for observing the eclipse. First, it is important to note that even during a solar eclipse it is not safe to look directly at the sun without special glasses or camera filters that meet the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard. Students may be tempted to look directly at the sun based on an incorrect assumption that during an eclipse it will not harm their eyes; however, looking at the sun, even for a few seconds could cause serious vision damage and we want to make sure we have safety measures in place to prevent injury to students and staff. 

    For schools and teachers who prefer to allow their students to experience the solar eclipse outside, you can use the options outlined in “How to View the 2017 Solar Eclipse Safely” flyer below. The two most common methods are the “pinhole” option and the use of solar glasses. Using the pinhole option, students will see a reflection of the partial solar eclipse rather than looking at the sun directly.

    While students should not experience any vision risk using the pinhole method it is important to constantly remind students of the dangers of looking at the sun at any time throughout the event to ensure students are not tempted to look at the sun.

    The second most common method is to observe the sun with the use of solar glasses. Anyone who wishes to use this method must first ensure that the glasses meet the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard. To date five manufacturers have certified that their eclipse glasses and hand-held solar viewers meet the ISO 12312-2 international standard for such products: American Paper Optics, Baader Planetarium (AstroSolar Silver/Gold film only), Rainbow Symphony, Thousand Oaks Optical, and TSE 17. All glasses should be inspected before use, and any scratched or damaged glasses should be immediately discarded. Students should be supervised at all times and teachers will ensure students are wearing their glasses before looking at the sun. Again, supervision of students will be critical to ensure students are not looking at the sun without the required protective glasses. 

    If teachers will be using any option beyond the NASA livestream, it is required that all students return the “Waiver for Minor Activities” form in order to participate. 

    Lastly, please remind your child of the dangers of looking at the sun. Teachers and staff will remain vigilant of students who may be tempted to look up during the eclipse. The eclipse will be visible in Chino from approximately 9:06 am to 11:36 am. There will be lessons and activities occuring in classrooms and many classes will be using the pinhole method outside during their 4th period class. Please call the school if you have any questions or concerns.

  • Townsend Traffic Maps for Pick Up & Drop Off
    When dropping off students in the morning, we encourage all drivers to arrive before 7:20 to avoid the traffic congestion.  When picking students up after school, we encourage all drivers to arrive 10-12 minutes after dismissal to avoid the traffic congestion.  Since there are 3 exits for students to leave campus, we encourage families to make arrangements to use Exit 2 and Exit 3 to reduce the traffic congestion in the parking lot.
    • All drivers who plan on waiting in the parking lot must be parked in a parking space.  Waiting in the driving aisles is not permitted. 
    • The green arrows below indicate the flow of traffic for vehicles passing through the driving aisles or looking for a parking space. Stopping and waiting is not permitted in these areas.
    • The yellow arrow represents the Bus Loading Zone.  Drop off is permitted before school, but not open for pick up until all busses have left the parking lot.
    • The red areas are No Parking Zones.  Waiting is not permitted in these areas.
    • The blue areas are designated for parking and waiting.  These are strategic areas where you can direct your student to meet you after school in order to reduce the time spent in traffic congestion.

  • District Epinephrine Auto Injection Policy

    Current law (SB 1266; BP/AR 5141.21) now requires schools to provide emergency epinephrine for individuals who may be experiencing anaphylaxis.  Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction which can occur after expose to an allergen, an insect sting or even (rare) after exercise. 

    Without immediate administration of epinephrine and summoning Emergency Medical Services (911), death could occur.  Certain individuals may experience anaphylaxis that have no known previous history an allergy and therefore, may not have their own prescription. A school staff member will administer this emergency injection to any student believed to be suffering from anaphylaxis and activate Emergency Management Services (911). Parent will be notified of the emergency and action taken.

     IF YOU DO NOT WANT your child to receive the emergency epinephrine injection, please NOTIFY THE SCHOOL IN WRITING.
