As you may know, employees in the Chula Vista Elementary School District began to access the vaccine for COVID-19 on February 27. The goal is to vaccinate education staff as quickly as possible. The reduction in COVID-19 case rates goes hand in hand with increased vaccination rates. As part of the District’s agreement with Chula Vista Educators, the bargaining group that represents teachers, the District will reopen to in-person instruction starting with a “hybrid” instructional format—provided that all health and safety conditions are met. A key condition is that San Diego County return to the Red Tier as defined in the state’s tiered-level system. The County is currently in the most restrictive Purple Tier.
There is much optimism that a move to the Red Tier is on the horizon, based upon the downward trend in adjusted case rates. Once that occurs, parents and school staffs will be provided two-weeks’ notice before the start of the first day of in-person school to ensure adequate preparation.
