COVID-19 CVLCC FAQs

Q: What are the meal service hours and locations?

A: The meal distribution will take place at nine regionally located school sites across the District. 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. Click here for a list of locations and map.

 

Q: What are you doing to ensure uninterrupted learning for our students?

A: We certainly understand and appreciate concerns about students’ academic progress during an extended or indefinite school closure. This is an extraordinary period in our history. We anticipate that we will go to distance learning (no return to school sites) April 6, 2020. Chula Vista Learning Community Charter is actively working in collaboration with the CVESD  and with teachers and leaders within CVLCC to provide a learning plan for students to engage in while at home. It is encouraging and heartening to see so many districts and educators contributing ideas for innovative solutions. More information on how students will be able to access distance learning will be available soon. For the time being, we are encouraging students and families to safely enjoy the two-week Spring Break in our District to the extent possible given current conditions.

 

Q: What if my child needs a laptop to access online distance learning? 

A: School site leaders will be sending out communication the week of March 30th that will include plans for families in need of a laptop to access distance learning. The pick-up procedures will follow all social distancing guidelines. 

 

Q: What if my family does not have internet or needs a paper/pencil version of distance learning?

A: For more information on services that offer internet throughout San Diego use this link to access more information CONNECTIVITY INFORMATION. School site leaders will also be sending out communication on paper/pencil materials the week of March 30th. The pick-up procedures will follow all social distancing guidelines. 

 

Q: How will you be supporting students with special needs during school closures?

A: Consistent with protecting the health and safety of all students, the Special Education Department is working closely with the County Office of Education, and local SELPA, to develop a plan to support our Special Education students when schools are reopened.

 

Q: Why does my child have to be physically present when receiving a meal?

A: It is a USDA requirement that each child that receives a meal be present. At this time, USDA has not approved a waiver to the requirement that children must be present to receive a meal that is being claimed for federal reimbursement.
