Thank You CDE and the Donors of Laptops to Meadows School in El Centro! Students, Staff and Ms. Rodriquez are so thankful! From Superintendent Rodriquez: "Today was our first day of school and I had to share this pic from last Saturday ). Thanks to your help in making this tech grant possible for our Meadows School we were able to become a one-to-one school!! We purchased backpacks for them and in there was their brand new Chromebook. This is our “little school that could” and our Board of Trustees, our teachers, our students and parents are very appreciative of this. Thank you so much for helping us kick off the year on a very high note in spite of all the unique situations we had to face being in a stay home order still. Hope you have a great year too!! Thanks again and stay safe!" Mrs. R

Compared with shouting, quiet talking reduces the production of virus-soaked aerosols by 80%; silence reduces them by 98%. One scientist told me talking quietly, rather than yelling, reduces the risk of viral transmission by a degree comparable to properly wearing a mask.

Lucerne Valley Elementary Gets OK To Begin In-School Classes Superintendent Peter Livingston sets August 20th as start date for “hybrid plan” as county, state respond quickly to Lucerne Valley’s waiver request. By LVUSD Social Media The Lucerne Valley Unified School District is the first in San Bernardino County to obtain a waiver to open its elementary school to in-person instruction after the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health approved the waiver on Wednesday. “We are approved as of today,” Superintendent Peter Livingston said Wednesday afternoon. “We’re the first in the county, and I believe we’re one of the first in the state. We’re really excited!” The school district received the approval letter on August 12th from San Bernardino County’s Interim Health Officer Dr. Erin Gustafson. She cited Lucerne Valley’s COVID-19 low community case rate of only 56.8 per 100,000 people compared to the county’s nearly four times higher overall rate of about 200 per 100,000 and the district’s comprehensive School Reopening Plan for the approval. Lucerne Valley Unified’s plan contains “all required elements to prevent and reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the school setting,” she said. Lucerne Valley’s community case rate “is below the recommended threshold set by the state for considering an elementary school waiver for opening in-person instruction,” she added. The county’s Department of Health sent its review of the LVUSD waiver application to the California Department of Public Health, which “concurred with our recommendation and notified us on August 12 that we may issue an approval to reopen your Elementary School for in-person instruction,” Dr. Gustafson wrote. Lucerne Valley Elementary School parents will have the choice to select either full-time virtual distance learning or the hybrid model of both distance learning and in-school instruction. The hybrid plan has two days of in-school instruction with distance learning on the other days, according to Mr. Livingston. “Our plan will be to reopen on August 20. This allows us time to fully communicate with all stakeholders.” Lucerne Valley Elementary School Principal Ricky Anderson shared Livingston’s excitement about opening up to in-person instruction for those who choose it. “It was great news hearing that we could open our elementary school on a hybrid model based on the data and safety precautions provided by the San Bernardino County Public Health Department,” Mr. Anderson said. “It truly has been a collective effort by all our students, families, administration, classified, and certificated employees to ensure a safe return for our students.” Moreover, the principal added, “if it wasn’t for the dedication and long hours put in by our Superintendent Peter Livingston and our tremendous school board, none of this would have been possible.” As the school gears up for the August 20th hybrid launch the staff is making sure that the safeguards and procedures are fine-tuned. “We are continuing to work closely with our superintendent and the San Bernardino County Public Health department to ensure a safe learning environment for our students,” Mr. Anderson said. Credit also goes to the community’s families for showing their support for getting students back in the classroom, he added. “It truly says something about our town and how they value the importance of education and getting our kids safely back in school.” Superintendent Peter Livingston talked about Lucerne Valley Elementary School receiving approval to reopen to in-person learning in a video on YouTube.

Bay Area Teacher and 2 Santa Cruz High students missing in dive boat tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pacific Collegiate Charter school in Santa Cruz and American High Science teacher in Fremont. As one brother who lost his sister reminds us: Love the people that you have in your life because you don’t know when their time is up," he said. "Let the people in your life know that you love them and just cherish every moment, breath by breath, because it’s really precious."
