Gabriele Hempill is a teacher with heart; a heart for students, a heart for colleagues and a heart for teaching. A current 7th grade English teacher at Sequoia Middle School, Mrs. Hempill with more than 26 years as an educator in the CVUSD, her self-professed goal is to help each individual student love the process of learning and to feel successful. We and the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce are proud to honor Mrs. Hempill as our April 2021 CVUSD Teacher of the Month!
I hope you had a restful and safe spring break. As we begin the home stretch towards the culmination of the 2020-2021 school year, we are excited to have our students return to campus and to continue to provide remote learning opportunities to those who have requested it.
As we look ahead, planning and safety remains at the forefront. It is with these two key factors in mind that I share this extremely important and exciting update with you: Conejo Valley Unified School District anticipates the 2021-2022 school year will begin with a return to full-day, on-campus (Pre-COVID) learning schedules for students of all grade levels.

After years of planning, the Los Cerritos Middle School Measure I Modernization Project will officially commence on Thursday, April 15th. It is anticipated that this project, which will transform the exterior of the campus, will be completed in December 2021.

The committee is charged with informing the public concerning the District’s expenditure of Measure I bond proceeds, reviewing expenditure reports, and preparation and presentation of an annual report. The committee meets at least once per year, but not more frequently than monthly.
