Principal Dunn Updates - December 5, 2021
Posted on 12/05/2021
César Chávez Elementary,

Thank you for taking the time to read our new updates and reminders below!

Short-Term Independent Study (STIS)

The winter break is approaching and many of our families have inquired about our school’s Short-Term Independent Study (STIS) Plans, or Travel Plans, which are contracts with terms that support independent study for a minimum of 3 days to maximum of 10 school days. The STIS plans are in the front office and must be signed by the parent, (3rd-6th) student and principal at least three business days in advance prior to the first day of student(s) absence. Please notify both our Attendance Manager, Daniela Loyola ([email protected]) and your student’s teacher(s) regarding the school days that will be missed. Thank you for contacting Sra. Daniela and your teacher well in advance so that your student’s plan will be available for pick up at the office prior to the beginning of the STIS period. Our school office hours are: 8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Vaccination Cards

Many thanks to our families who provided our office staff with your child’s vaccination card. We are accepting copies or screen shots of enrolled CCE student vaccination cards in the office or via email to Daniela Loyola ([email protected]). If you have children enrolled at any other DJUSD school, you may email copies of their cards to Janeett Rosales-Flores ([email protected]).

Your CARES is appreciated!

Sra. Dunn

Thank you SIPAT and families who help fund our PBIS-CARES program this school year! Your membership to SIPAT, personal donations to our CCE Webstore and participation in SIPAT fundraising events help fund our CCE CARES projects for our school campus, students and staff. Many more signs will be installed throughout the campus over time, ¡César CARES!


CCE Campus Repairs

Repairs to the exiting sewer lines at CCE require the removal of an ornamental pear. This tree is in poor condition and is at or near end of it’s expected life. The tree is located just north of where the front office walkway meets the parking lot. This tree will be removed during the winter break. The sewer line work will also be completed over winter break. The sewer line work will correct an existing “belly” in the line and will help ensure the chronic sewer back-ups at CCE are eliminated.

Important Reminders
