Attendance Matters! Be here and on time!

When children are absent from school, they miss out on consistent instruction that is needed to develop basic skills. Children in early grades are particularly susceptible to falling behind in fundamental reading skills, which can have a snowball effect that impacts future learning.

Book Fair starts on Thursday! NO CASH accepted!

Get Ready! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way (YAY!). Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them to become Bolder, Prouder, and Stronger Readers. AND—as always—every book they buy earns rewards for our school.
Here’s what you need to know about the Fair, which will take place from Tuesday September 1st thru Friday morning, September 9th in the MultiPurpose Room (MPR):
This year, say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet—your child’s digital payment account. Before the Fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases.
If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school.
Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping:
The countdown to more Bookjoy is on! Catch you at the Fair!

Safety Reminders

  • Campus is secured at 8:15 for the safety of your child.
  • All gates are closed and locked at 8:15 daily.
  • If you are using the back gate, it will be locked at 8:15, so if you are still on campus, you will need to exit through the front.
  • Parents are not allowed on campus after 8:15 unless you are volunteering
  • There is no pick up or drop off in the bus loop.
  • Please be mindful of staff parking.
  • Use caution and obey the traffic rules on campus.
  • No parking in the pick up/drop off lane in front of the school.

Volunteer Agreement Paperwork

We welcome volunteers on campus.  Please make sure you have completed the following so that you can volunteer at school.

  • Volunteer agreement form
  • Current TB test (required every 4 years)
  • COVID vaccine card or a negative test within two days of volunteering
  • Current ID
  • Fingerprinting if volunteering more than 2 days a week

All forms and paperwork can be check on MONDAYS and WEDNESDAYS

Free and Reduced Price Meals

Did you know that every student in Chula Vista Elementary School District is able to receive free breakfast and lunch everyday?  That’s right!  Every “Robo Griffin” has the opportunity to have a free breakfast (7:30-8:00) and lunch daily, but we do need your help.  You should have received a GREEN application for free/reduced priced meals this week.  It is crucial to our school funding to get back as many forms as possible, even if you don’t qualify.  Please take the time to complete the form and return to your child’s teacher.  Every student is eligible for FREE breakfast and lunch this year no matter what is identified on the green form.
