Over the past two years Covina-Valley has done remarkable work in reducing it’s water usage through the installation of artificial turf. We are now embarking on a new way for our District to save money and be environmentally responsible. This summer, thirteen of our sites in Covina-Valley will have solar panel structures installed. These sites include Cypress, Grovecenter, Lark Ellen, Merwin, and Mesa Elementary; Las Palmas, Sierra Vista, and Traweek Middle; and Covina, Fairvalley, Northview, and South Hills High Schools; and the Trade-Tech Academy. Through installation of these solar structures, it is estimated that C-VUSD will save $333,387 in electricity charges in the first year of full implementation and potentially $15,251,000 over the next 20 years.
In addition to saving money on electricity costs for the District, these solar panel structures will have a variety of other benefits for our students, staff, and community. At several sites, the solar panels will provide cover and additional lighting for student and staff parking areas. Others sites will benefit from the structures providing shaded areas for students during break and lunches. At several of the high school sites, the solar panels will provide shade for students, staff and community members who attend outdoor sporting events.

A remarkable event began in Covina, CA in November of 2012. The community saw the birth of a new project started by the Covina Rotary Club on the fields of Sierra Vista Middle School. For the entire week preceding Veteran’s Day, two thousand American flags flew as a patriotic tribute honoring all Veterans and Active Duty Military Personnel for their dedication and service to our nation, preserving our security and our freedom. Visitors and volunteers from the surrounding communities experienced an amazing sense of patriotism while viewing and honoring a display of the flags – star spangled banners standing tall and proud, and by participating in various activities during the week ending on Veterans’ Day.
The majority of the flags were sponsored and specifically dedicated by groups and individuals honoring a friend or family member. Throughout the week, various speakers, concerts, student tours, and military fly-overs made the field an exciting and magnificent tribute to our veterans.
