Tips for Drop-off

1- Please have students sitting on the passenger side of the car. If students have to climb over siblings and other items it slows down our drop-off line.
2- Parents cannot get out of the car.
3- ONLY students in TK/Kindergarten, 1st grade, and Ms. Tulbure’s class (and their siblings) may use the main parking lot. Your signs really help- please make sure you have one we can easily read.
4- Please do NOT drive around cars. Please be patient and wait to move forward.
5- Please drive s.l.o.w.l.y while in the parking lot and refrain from using your cell phone while driving.
6- Please do not wait to watch your child walk to class. It slows down the drop-off line. Staff will make sure all students get to class safely.
7- Parents do not stop cars in the crosswalk. The crossing guard cannot cross students if ANY part of a car is within the crosswalk lines. This can definitely slow down arrival.

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE AND BACK TO SCHOOL INFORMATION 2021-2022

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE AND BACK TO SCHOOL INFORMATION 2021-2022

Dear Chaparral C.U.B.S. Family,

May this letter find you and your family in good health and high spirits. We are looking forward to welcoming our C.U.B.S. to full-time instruction on campus this year, beginning Wednesday, August 18th. For our families who are new to Chaparral this year, Welcome to our incredible C.U.B.S. community. For our returning families, we continue to move forward with our Unified Community Building the Success of all Students. Go C.U.B.S!

Recently, Dr. Stepenosky, Las Virgenes Superintendent, sent out our 2021-2022 Family Resource Guide. It holds essential information. Some examples include our enhanced academic opportunities, social-emotional supports, a snapshot of the school day, and our commitment to safety. Also, if you could not join Dr. Stepenosky and our entire LVUSD leadership team at our district webinar this week, August 11th, the link to the webinar will be posted on the LVUSD.org main page for parents to watch at their convenience.

Reminders of exciting Chaparral highlights for the 2021-2022 school year:

Full-time elementary school counselor, Ms. Hazelle Cato

  • Visual Arts with Ms. Gabrielle Harradine & Performing Arts with Mr. Michael Siegel
  •  The school year includes three additional school days that were formerly professional staff development.  These dates are October 11, January 24, and March 21.
  • Free lunches will be available for all students, regardless of income levels, during the upcoming school year.
  • We planted trees to provide more shade and added new benches in the middle courtyard and the upper yard play area.
  • Future fencing to further secure the school site on the middle level, installation of new play equipment on the lower yard, and both should be completed by the end of 2021.
  • PE weekly for our students funded by the PFC with Ms. Felicity Clements
  • Additional hours per week of adult support in our classrooms and supervision on the play yard funded by our PFC.

On the first day of school only, August 18th, parents may park their car and walk their children directly to their classroom between 7:45 am,, and 8:00 am. There is a warning bell at 7:55 am and a final bell at 8:00 am.  

We will continue with morning student drive-through drop-off this year for grades TK, K, and 1st, with the following revisions:

    • No pick-up drive-through. Parents/Caregivers should park legally (not in front of our neighbor’s driveways, trashcans, & mailboxes) and walk to the pick-up location for their student’s grade level. Transitional Kindergarten (TK), Kindergarten, and 1st Grade should be picked up at the large lower yard gate. Students in grades 2 -5 should be picked up at the upper yard gate. Students enrolled in the Boys & Girls Club will be gathered and brought down to the club.

All parents of Grades TK/K – 5 will be in one line on Liberty Bell as they drive to their drop-off locations. Please have all passengers wearing masks when dropping students off. As mentioned, students in grades 2 – 5 will arrive at the drop off line location on Liberty Bell in front of the upper yard play area. We will have PFC volunteers supporting students by opening the doors in the car line. Grades TK, K, 1st, and their siblings will need to have a sign on their car dashboard with family names and grades of students. The template will be sent to those grades next week. They will stay in the car line until they are directed by our staff, who are directing traffic, to turn right (only) into the middle yard parking lot. Parents will remain in the car while staff and volunteers open car doors and bring or direct students to classrooms.

As Dr. Stepenosky noted in his letter and his webinar, please be aware of our health and safety protocols:

  • Parents are responsible for taking temperatures at home before bringing children to school and students should never be sent to school if they are not well. It has been recently added that all parents will be filling out a health screening form before bringing their children to school. We will have more information going home on Monday.
  • Per CDPH guidelines, face coverings are required by ALL persons indoors (on-campus) and in large groups outside, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Face coverings will be required for all students and staff when indoors. Face coverings are optional for all students and staff when outdoors, except in large group gatherings.
  • Students and staff must stay home if they exhibit any COVID symptoms:  fever ≥ 100.0○F; new cough (different from baseline); diarrhea or vomiting.  Anyone exhibiting these symptoms will need to be isolated and sent home.  As a reminder, families have three options for their ill children.
  1. Contact the child’s primary care provider; if the primary care provider determines the symptoms are not COVID related, the student may return when symptoms have resolved.  The student will need to be fever, vomiting, and diarrhea-free for 24 hrs before their return.
  2. Contact the child’s primary care; if the provider tests the student for COVID, the student can not return until the results have been reported to the school.
  3. Do nothing, and the student will need to remain home for ten days from the start of symptoms and return to school on day 11.  Symptoms will need to be resolved
  • We will continue to practice intense safety and sanitation through daily cleaning and provide all classroom learning spaces with adequate hand sanitizer, antimicrobial wipes, and air filtration systems.
  • Students are in larger student groups within the classroom. We will ensure that students can come together to play and develop social connections while also promoting student health and social distancing when appropriate and necessary.
  • Students will play in their classroom groups at recess and lunch and will rotate areas each week.
  • Visitors will be limited, and volunteers must be vaccinated. School-wide events and large gatherings will be held outdoors.
  • Should a student or staff member show symptoms commonly associated with COVID, they will be required to follow up with their health care provider and the school health clerk before returning to campus.
  • Should students or staff members test positive for COVID, they are asked to isolate for ten days. These guidelines will continue to be updated based on CDPH and LACDPH guidance. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.

At Chaparral these past two years, there is only one thing we can say for sure, “things can and will change.” All of our schedules, policies, and procedures, including our safety protocols, could change. Any change is always in the best interests of our staff and students. Student safety is our priority and begins with all of us working together to keep everyone safe. Please make reading any messages and information from me, PFC, and your child’s teacher part of your weekly routine. We thank you in advance for your efforts!

Of course, we look forward to seeing all of our students on Wednesday, August 18th, for the first day of school. You will be able to view your child’s teacher in Aeries after 5:00 pm on Tuesday, August 17th.  It is important to note that it might not be accurate to see a teacher’s name before this deadline, as we create classes right up to the deadline. Please check the Chaparral or PFC website for school supply lists should you wish to have your student bring supplies. I have attached our recently updated daily schedule with this message. Take care, and be well, C.U.B.S.

With C.U.B. Pride,

Stephanie Brazell,

Principal

Welcome Back to School, Chaparral!

Welcome Back to School, Chaparral!

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! We are back full-time!  I am excited to begin my ninth year as your principal, and considering what we have been facing for over a year; I am thrilled to welcome all of you back!

We are looking forward to the reopening of schools this Fall. The first day of school is scheduled for August 18, 2021. As we continue to embrace the challenges of the future, we will continue to cherish and celebrate the Chaparral traditions of the past.  Our exceptional staff, involved parents, and committed students always come together to make Chaparral Elementary a wonderful and unique place.

I am grateful to continue this journey with you as your Principal, and I look forward to building a solid relationship with all of you in the upcoming year. As a Community Unified in Building the Success of its Students, we are ….C.U.B.S. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.

As we begin to rebuild and recover from the global pandemic, school safety and rebuilding our school community will continue to be one of our top priorities. We are ready for our students and will have safety and wellness procedures and requirements consistently implemented. The California Department of Health and L.A. County of Health provide guidance such as personal protective equipment, hand washing and sanitizing stations, face coverings indoors, air filtration HVAC systems, and additional outdoor learning spaces. Safety at Chaparral begins with all staff, parents, and students working diligently together to follow the school rules, safety protocols, and classroom procedures designed to keep us safe. More detailed information about programs and services can be found in this link: 2021-2022 LVUSD Family Resource Guide Family Resource Guide . Dr. Stepenosky will also be hosting a webinar with his leadership team next Wednesday, August 11th, at 3:00 PM. The link to the webinar will be posted on the LVUSD.org website main page for parents to watch at their convenience.

We will also continue to enhance our Student Social & Emotional Learning Program with lessons, activities, and instruction that build the social-emotional character and development of the whole child through mindfulness, kindness, and character education with an increased understanding of how all of us, working together, is an essential tool for social justice and racial equity. In addition, this year, we have enhanced academic opportunities and social-emotional supports with full-time elementary counselors, full-time intervention teachers, Art, and Music teachers, technology hardware and infrastructure upgrades, extended library hours, and have extended the school year by three additional days of instruction. Resources are also available for students and families at the LVUSD Counseling Center.

School begins Wednesday, August 18th. Classroom assignments will be posted Tuesday evening, August 17th, after 5:00 pm in your student’s Aeries portal. On the first day of school, students may be dropped off at 7:45 am.

Presidents’ Message – June 2021

Dear Chaparral CUBS Community,

In what has been a challenging and unique year, our community came together and accomplished SO much! Thank you to all the parents, teachers, and staff who helped our community, volunteered your time, and gave our students your best!
