Dear Merwin Families,

I appreciate your support and understanding as we navigate together through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we will stay healthy and get through this crisis! 

At this time, per the Governor’s order, C-VUSD may not open to in-person learning until Los Angeles County is off the Department of Health’s “watch” list for at least 14 days. We are preparing for 100% distance learning to start the year. When it is safe to do so, we are also ready to transition into a hybrid model where students have both at-school and virtual learning, and the traditional 100% in-person return with increased health and safety practices. New regulations and expectations, distance learning, have been outlined by the legislature and Governor’s office. These new regulations call for a more robust and comprehensive program compared to our “Emergency Distance Learning” last spring. You will be receiving information regarding data confirmation, laptop checkout, class assignments, and supply pick up within the next few weeks.

I am privileged to be part of the dedicated and professional staff at Merwin.  As we journey through this year together, I trust this is going to be a fantastic year full of fun, new relationships, and learning for all of us.
