Message from the Superintendent - Schools are Expected to Remain Open Tomorrow, Monday, August 21

CVUHSD schools are expected to remain open tomorrow, Monday, August 21. Please note that the start time for students tomorrow is 9:30 AM, as it is a Collaboration Day.

You may have heard that LAUSD announced the closure of all schools tomorrow, citing the size of their district and their inability to inspect their schools before the school day begins. This is not the case for CVUHSD. We have inspected all our schools, and we have not experienced any significant impacts due to the storm.

I had the ability to check in with other local districts, and at this time, no other local district is planning to close schools. There are a couple of districts that have not started school yet, but they will continue to hold professional development for staff on campus tomorrow.
