Thank You to Our Wonderful Seniors and Class of 2020

Cap and Gown Distribution

Please read through this entire message as there is very important information on how Cap and Gown distribution will take place. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are assigning distribution time slots by the student’s last name to limit the number of students on campus at any given time. Please refer to the chart below for your scheduled time. It is imperative that you follow the schedule and adhere to all social distancing guidelines. For the safety of students and staff, you must have your face covered at all times. This is not a time to socialize with your peers. You may park or get dropped off in the teacher parking lot on K Street between 4th and 5th. The only entrance to campus will be through the black gate near the PAC. Once on campus you will be able to retrieve your cap and gown through the ticket window of the PAC. You will then move to the lobby for some of the clubs/district sashes and cords. The second ticket window will be where you pick up your yearbook if they arrive on time. All foot traffic will be one way and there will be signs and staff to help guide you.From there, you will make your way to the stadium for a picture opportunity and senior gifts. Once your picture has been taken and you have received your gift you will be directed back to the parking lot. We ask that you leave campus immediately after getting your items and picture.

Distribution will take place on Tuesday, May 26th by the Student’s last name:

Estudiantes del ultimo ano,

Por favor lean todo el mensaje porque hay información muy importante sobre la distribución de togas y birretes. Por cause de las restricciones de COVID-19, tenemos que asignar tiempos para cada estudiante basado en su apellido. Por favor revisen la gráfica incluida para ver el tiempo que les toca para venir a recoger su toga y birrete. Es Imperativo que sigan los tiempos indicados y distanciamiento social.Para la seguridad de todos los estudiantes y personal, deben tener su cara cubierta todo el tiempo que estén en la escuela recogiendo sus togas. Este no es el tiempo para socializar con sus compañeros. Pueden estacionarse o ser dejados en el estacionamiento de maestros que se encuentra en la calle K, entra la avenida cuarta y quinta. La única entrada para estudiantes será en la puerta negra cerca del teatro. Ya que entren al plantel, podrán recoger su toga y birrete en la primera taquilla de boletos del teatro. Después, podrán recoger sus cuerdas y fajas de sus clubs y distrito en el vestíbulo del teatro. La segunda ventana de taquilla es donde podrán recoger sus anuales si llegan a tiempo los anuales. Todo tráfico de peatón será de un solo sentido y abra letreros y personal para guiarlos.Después de recoger sus artículos, irán al estadio para tomarse una foto y recoger sus regalos de estudiantes de ultimo ano. Ya que su foto sea tomada y recojan su regalo, se les dirigirán de regreso al estacionamiento. Les pedimos que se retiren de la escuela inmediatamente después de recoger sus artículos.

A few additional things: Please note that if you ordered your cap and gown online this is the day to pick them up. Also, we will have photographers taking pictures of each student. Due to the limited time students will be allowed on campus this will not be a time for students to take their own pictures. Students will have access to a gallery of pictures to download. If you are borrowing a family members cap and gown you can bring it for the picture taking opportunity but it is not required. Attached is a picture of one of the gifts that ALL seniors will receive. This is an 18″ by 12″ window sign that can also be used as a lawn sign. Please come by to pick up your gifts even if you don’t have a cap and gown to pick up!!!!!! Thank you!


Cheer Team Tryouts

CVHS Cheer Team Tryout Update

Hello to all of you out there interested in trying out for Chula Vista High School Cheer Team for the 2020-2021 season. I wanted to give you a heads up on how we are running our tryouts this year during this pandemic. 

First,  I want to let you know, we will not be having tryouts until we go back to school. When we get info about going back to school I will post and give you an exact day. Until then I have posted the try out dance, cheer and jump that you will be tested on at tryouts.

 I figured many of you can’t leave the house so you have plenty of time to learn it before we go back to school. Pass it on to anybody wanting to try out for the team this coming school year. During this time we want you guys to focus on your studies and your families and not have to worry about making a team or not. Enjoy your family time at home and don’t worry about cheer tryouts till we go back to school.

Principal’s Message

Dear Spartan Parents/Guardians and Students,

 We hope that this communication finds you well.  Though we are still under shelter-in-place orders, distance learning will be moving forward at Chula Vista High School starting April 20, 2020.  We want to thank you for your patience as we navigate these unprecedented times.  Our staff miss our students and we look forward to the time when we can see them again on campus.

 Click Here for a general schedule that teachers are following to ensure students have time for each period and Distance Learning Guidelines for students.  Teachers will be communicating with their students the learning platform they will be using with students, their schedule of check-ins and expectations, links to resources and assignments, and times that they can consult for extra help.

 Thank you very much to all who answered the survey for students that will help us with supporting our students as we make this transition.  A paper copy of the survey was also mailed to those who were not able answer online.  Please take the time to fill out the survey and return them to the school.  You can drop off completed surveys in a box placed in the front driveway at Chula Vista high school.  We have received more than 1600 responses and are awaiting about 600 more.  The more we know what students need, the better we can prepare and support our students as we move to distance learning.  If you want to complete the online survey and lost the link, here it is:


 We also sent E-mail last week that teachers were contacting their students and checking in with them, in preparation for distance learning.  Please make sure you let your child know to respond to their teachers.  Teachers are also letting us know student technology needs as their students are communicating with them.

Please click here for Student Responsibilities during Distant Learning

Teachers have been and are working very hard last week and this week to prepare for distance learning.  They have been participating in distance learning themselves.  They are working together to plan positive learning experiences for your children.  They are continuing to build on whatever students have already learned with a different delivery system.  We want to thank you in advance for supporting your children’s teachers’ efforts in connecting with your them and helping your children continue their learning.

 For assistance with learning platforms such as Google Classroom, Google Meet, Canvas, Jupiter Grades, and Microsoft Teams, “Ask a Librarian” will be available for parents and students starting Monday, April 20.  A link to this service will be in our district and school website.  A separate E-mail will be sent to you from our Librarian, Ms. Gilmore, describing this service.

Even then, there are still unanswered questions with distance learning around the following:

  • Accessing the campus to retrieve learning materials and student work
  • Checking out computers
  • Turning in computers that need repair
  • Picking up computer accessories
  • Turning in computers because your child will be using their own personal device
  • Picking up computers that have been repaired (turned in before March 13)
  • If necessary, the procedure to pick up and turn in paper copies of handouts

 As soon as we receive approval from the district to have students come on to campus to retrieve or return computers, books, paper copies of handouts, and/or athletic uniforms/equipment, we will communicate our procedures to you. The district is preparing computers for distribution to students who were not issued one and now need them.  As soon as we receive information and guidelines for distribution, we will execute our plan to contact students who need computers with the information and directions for distribution.

In addition, there are still outstanding questions regarding the following:

  • Senior activities and the possibility of refunds
  • Graduation
  • Yearbook
  • Online Registration (OLR)/Enrollment

At this point, our senior activities (Prom, GradNite, Graduation) have not been cancelled, but are being evaluated at the district level as the COVID-19 situation progresses. Our district is committed to the safety and well-being of all students and are examining all issues surrounding these activities. A survey on graduation is being sent to seniors soon.  I urge your child to respond to it.  As soon as we get direction from the district regarding these difficult decisions, we will inform you and discuss next steps as well. If the decision is made to cancel any or all of these events, we will have a procedure for processing refunds in a timely manner.

The 2019-2020 Spartan Yearbook is scheduled to arrive in late May. The deadline to purchase a yearbook is May 15 (or until they are sold out). If you would still like to purchase a yearbook, you may do so online from our ASB student store.  We will send another E-mail regarding the distribution process before the end of May. 

Communication regarding online registration and enrollment specific to CVHS are being sent by our registrar, Ms. Leslie McClelland.

We will continue to send communication to all parents/guardians and students as we receive updated information. Finally, we also realize that this pandemic has disrupted many lives and there is a need for support.  Attached and linked below is a list of resources that may help families during these very challenging times:

List of Resources for Spartan Students and Families

Once again, thank you for your flexibility and patience.  We are committed to supporting you through this transition.


Mary Rose Peralta and the CVHS Administration
