Dear CVUSD Parents and Guardians of Junior High School and High School Students:
Last week at a special Board meeting, the Board of Education voted to authorize me to begin in-person instruction for grades 7-12 when the County of San Bernardino (County) meets State of California (State) guidelines. Each Tuesday, the County publicly updates their COVID-19 data and places counties in tier assignments in accordance with the State Blueprint for a Safer Economy. County tier assignments will determine our eligibility to reopen schools for in-person instruction.
As of today, the County is still in the most restrictive Purple Tier. The County must be assigned to the Red Tier for schools to be qualified to open for in-person learning. In order for the County to progress to the Red Tier, it must:
1. Have an adjusted COVID-19 case rate of 4.0-7.0 per 100,000 population
2. Have a COVID-19 positivity rate between 5.0-8.0%
3. Be in the health equity quartile between 5.3-8.0%
I will provide as much notice as possible to parents and guardians regarding the eligibility standing of CVUSD by providing a weekly Tuesday communications update. This information will also be posted publicly on the District website and on the District social media pages.
As always, thank you for your partnership and patience as we move towards transitioning our students back to campus safely and efficiently.
Norm Enfield, Ed.D.
