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.

Sincerely,

Coach Vanessa & Coach Patterson

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.

Sincerely,

Mary Rose Peralta and the CVHS Administration
