Meal Distribution Update

Hello Juarez-Lincoln Families,

I hope everyone is doing well.

Here is some important information about the upcoming weeks.  Please note that developments are fluid and may change at any time. I will continue to send out messengers as needed to keep everyone informed on important developments in the community.

  • Schools will remain closed indefinitely until further notice as part of a united effort to protect our citizens.
  • ALL 2019-2020 summative State assessments have been cancelled- including CAASPP, ELPAC, and Physical Fitness Testing.

Meal Distribution

Also note that the Chula Vista Elementary School District will extend its “grab-and-go” meal service for the next two weeks. The meal distribution will take place at nine regionally located school sites across the District. One of those will be Juarez-Lincoln.  However, there will be only ONE DAY for meal distribution each of those weeks, with a box for each student that will contain five days’ worth of meals.

The distribution dates are:

  • 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 24 and
  • 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 31

Students who are receiving meals must be physically present. Meals may consist of packaged, refrigerated, and frozen items.

Moving forward

I encourage you to stay positive and let’s all do our part in getting through this.  Let’s spread the word and maintain our distance from another, avoid gatherings, stay home (especially if sick), cough into your elbow, wash your hands, and don’t touch your face. These are things we can all do at this time to get through this pandemic and take care of our children, families, friends, elders, colleagues, and everyone else.

Thank you everyone and WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS.

Meal Service

Dear CVESD Families,

The Chula Vista Elementary School District will extend its “grab-and-go” meal service through the two-week Spring Break, March 23 to 27 and March 30 to April 3. The meal distribution will take place at nine school sites across the region. Families will only need to make one trip to their closest school to pick up lunch and breakfast for the next day for children ages 1 to 18.

The hours are: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (noon) each day.

Students who are receiving the meals must be physically present. Meals are served cold and need to be reheated at home. The locations are:

Vista Square Elementary School (540 G Street Chula Vista, CA 91910)

Rice Elementary School (915 Fourth AV Chula Vista, CA 91911)

Additionally, starting Wednesday, March 18 the Chula Vista Elementary School District Office will be closed to the public, as will all school front offices. At this time, the District office and school offices are scheduled to reopen on Monday, April 6.

During these uncertain times, it’s important that we remain calm, follow the advice of trusted sources, and remember that we will get through this together.

Sincerely, Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D. Superintendent

School Attendance

Research after research shows that attending school regularly leads to success. When students miss or arrive late to school, they acquire gaps in their learning that may impeded their success in school.

Our school wide attendance rate dropped last week to the lowest this school year at 92.7%!

Last week, we had 2 classrooms with 100% attendance. Let’s continue to work together to exceed our School Attendance GOAL of 98%! Coming to school on time is the first best decision students make. Please help your children come to school no later than 8:10a.  At 8:15a, instruction begins! Please participate in your child’s success by bringing them to school on time each and every day.

Thank you we hope you can join us.

Walking/Running Club

You may hear some music in the mornings! That is because we have started a Walking/Running Club on Mondays-Fridays in the blacktop area between 7:45a-8:05a. This is a time for students to walk or run some laps with friends, or by themselves, while listening to some music. All 2-6 grade students may participate.  Kindergarten and first grade students may only participate with an adult.
