Mental Health and COVID-19, Staff Appreciation + Board Meeting
Posted 5/19/20

Good Evening CUSD Families,

On Friday, we shared we are performing an analysis to identify how Governor Newsom’s May revisions to the California State Budget may impact CUSD after July 1. We also shared we are developing a survey for our families to share feedback on their distance learning experience and expectations for opening school in the fall.


We will provide more news about each of these items later this week.


This email includes a celebration of our classified employees, the recording of a mental health webinar held in partnership with Hoag Hospital, and information about this week’s Board of Trustee meeting.

CUSD & Hoag Webinar Recording | Mental Health & COVID-19: What Parents Can Do to Support Their Children

COVID-19 has impacted and changed our world in many ways. In particular, our youth have encountered a difficult time related to the transition and managing the stress associated with the current times.


In support of parents and students, and in honor of May being Mental Health Matters Month, we hosted a webinar with Hoag Hospital to respond to concerns and provide ways to support students during this difficult time.
