During this time, students have looked to Netflix alongside other streaming platforms for entertainment.  One show that some students are watching during this pandemic is “Grey’s Anatomy.” This show has 16 ongoing seasons to keep the students who watch it busy.

CVUSD Celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week

May 8, 2020

With school closures, this year's teacher appreciation week was far from the usual routine of thank you cards from classes and Starbucks gift cards adorned with sketches of apples.

TOHS ASB put together a video to show their gratitude to their teachers. "Thank you so much for all your hard work," junior Olivia Harrington said in the opening of the video.

Dance: Some students chose to take part in the elective dance. Currently, several sports are struggling to keep up with their students' physical activity but teachers and advisors are handling it very well by continuing activities through zoom calls and at home workouts.   “[The workload for online dance is] very minimal with only a few assignments each week.” Sophomore Sydney Locke said. Online workouts are still good for the body, as it helps to keep students in shape over quarantine, but it is not the same without friends and peers.  “I miss everyone so much and have le...

COVID-19 School Closure Updates

April 28, 2020

What will happen with grades? The California Education Code gives recommendations on possible grading systems, but can not govern what schools decide. The options of grading include: pass/fail, credit/no credit, no harm academic grading or a regular grading scale. Another option would be changing the range of the grading scale, for example an” A-C” scale. At the meeting, there was discussion that since students are taught to be motivated by good grades, some may be disappointed not to see their “A” present on their transcript.  Another point brought up was that there should be a grading system that can only raise the student’s grade, not lower it. This would be beneficial to students, especially those who have extremely difficult conditions during this quarantine. However, the main issue with thi...
