Postponement of School Reopening

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Although our goal of a phased return to in-person instruction was proposed for October 26, 2020, our District will take extra precautions and postpone the reopening because COVID-19 transmission rates in our boundaries are still too high. We want to give you notice now of our decision. We remain committed to a safe return when the data in our boundary area supports resuming at least a hybrid form of in-person instruction. In the meantime, we will continue working with our bargaining groups and stakeholders to ensure a safe reopening at a future date.

SUPERINTENDENT MESSAGE

Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff Members:

The Chula Vista Elementary School District will hold a Virtual Town Hall meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, October 5. Join us to hear more about plans for a proposed phased reopening of schools to in-person instruction. The time and date of the meeting were moved up in response to parent and staff feedback, and to accommodate the inclusion of two medical professionals with extensive experience and knowledge of the health and care environment, especially in regard to our local community. Superintendent Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D., will be joined by Jeannette Aldous, M.D., and Shaila Serpas, M.D., for this informational and educational presentation. 

Dr. Aldous is the Clinical Director of Infectious Disease at San Ysidro Health.  She was awarded the “Live Well San Diego Public Health Champion” award for the Individual category, which honors an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the prevention of disease or injury, and/or the promotion of health, in the San Diego County community.  

Dr. Aldous has more than 10 years of experience in public health and gives a valuable community provider perspective as an expert in infectious diseases.. She has an impressive resume that includes local, state, and international public health experience, especially in infectious disease treatment and prevention. 

Dr. Serpas has a passion for obstetrics and adolescent health, working to continually enhance residency curriculum as associate director of Scripps Family Medicine Residency Program. She was instrumental in establishing and maintaining three school-based adolescent clinics as core residency teaching sites. Since 1994, she has provided care in federally-qualified health centers. Dr. Serpas completed her Master of Public Health through the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health. 

Dr. Serpas partners with Scripps residents to implement community-based research projects, school-based programs, and advocacy activities. Her clinical interests include reducing health disparities in the areas of childhood obesity, lactation, and migrant health and improving access to healthy environments.
