DI Lottery for 2015-16

We have not yet held the lottery for our incoming Kinder class.  We are still waiting for the chance of adding a 6th kinder class and will hold out another week before making that decision.  All kinder parents who have requested DI will be notified by phone call once that has occurred.

Here are some twitter highlights from our #camlearns family and friends.

Public Safety Announcement

Sent on Behalf of Instructional Services and Support:
Dear Parents/Guardians:
We want to share information provided by our EastLake Middle School partners about a series of incidents that occurred after school on Tuesday, May 26. The Chula Vista Police Department received reports yesterday afternoon that several students were robbed of cell phones and an iPad during at least two separate incidents as students made their way home from EastLake Middle School. Victims and witnesses reported the suspect had what appeared to be a gun. Detectives have linked another possible case on April 30, also in the afternoon hours, to these robberies. There may be additional cases based on the similarities (time, locations, and Method of Operation). CVPD is asking the public to contact Detective Molina at (619) 691-5178 with any information about the incidents.
We ask that you please take a moment to talk to your student(s) about being aware of surroundings as they make their way to and from school, walk with friends when possible, and to be vigilant while using phones or electronics in public areas. Talk to your child about the importance of reporting any suspicious activity to you, to school staff, or the police. Our mutual goal is to keep students safe at all times.

Estimado padre de familia o tutor:
Deseamos compartir información que nos dio el personal de la Escuela Secundaria EastLake respecto a una serie de incidentes que ocurrieron después de clases el martes 26 de mayo. Ayer por la tarde, el Departamento de Policía de Chula Vista recibió reportes de que a varios estudiantes les robaron teléfonos y un iPad en por lo menos dos distintos incidentes al dirigirse a sus casas luego de salir de la escuela EastLake Middle. Las víctimas y algunos testigos informaron que el sospechoso tenía en su poder lo que parecía ser un arma de fuego. Los detectives han deducido que estos robos tienen una posible conexión con otro caso ocurrido el 30 de abril, también por la tarde. Tal vez existan más casos que hayan sido denunciados al departamento de policía y otros que no hayan sido reportados. Por lo parecido entre los casos (hora del día, lugar de los hechos y método de operación), la policía pide al público que se comunique con el detective Molina al teléfono (619) 691-5178 para dar cualquier otra información que ayude a resolver el caso.
Por favor, tome unos momentos para hablar con su hijo de que esté atento de sus alrededores cuando se dirija a la escuela y de regreso a casa, que se acompañe de amigos cuando sea posible, y que tenga cuidado cuando use teléfonos o dispositivos electrónicos cuando esté en áreas públicas. Dígale que es importante que reporte cualquier actividad sospechosa a usted, al personal escolar o a la policía. Nuestra meta mutua es cuidar de la seguridad de los estudiantes siempre.
