Recent graduates of our Parent Engagement Class celebrate their success! 

Updated Fri, Apr 20th

Capri will start state testing on Monday, April 30th and run through Friday, May 25th.  All students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will participate.

Please make it a priority to arrive on time have your child at school every day.

Most testing will occur first thing in the morning. So that our students may have their best opportunity to succeed and demonstrate all that they’ve learned this year, we ask that you...

  • Have your child get a full night of sleep during this time period.
  • Have your child eat a healthy breakfast and arrive with a snack.
  • Make it a priority to arrive on time.
  • Schedule all activities and appointments after school hours.

Parents, please keep your children at home if they were sick during the night or showing symptoms of illness in the morning.  We have been sending home many students who arrived at school not feeling well. 

As a reminder, our district policy requires students to stay home until they have been symptom-free for 24 hours. 

To protect our students and staff from the spread of communicable disease, we ask that you do not send your child to school with any of the following symptoms:

  • A productive cough with yellow or green nasal discharge
  • Fever of 100 degrees or more
  • Eyes that are red, swollen, crusting or draining
  • Acute, severe earache or drainage from ear
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea accompanied by vomiting
  • A severe sore throat
  • A rash of unknown origin
  • Pain that does not subside after resting
  • A severe toothache

Parents of students exhibiting any of the above symptoms at school will be notified to pick their child up from the school office.

To report an absence, please call our 24-hour absences line:  (408) 341-7118.

Did you know we are having a Perfect Attendance Challenge?!?

Prizes for the top three classes include:

  • 1st Place: Pizza Party! 
  • 2nd Place: Popsicle Party!
  • 3rd place: 10 minutes of extra recess!

Congrats to everyone who has added letters so far! Keep up the great work!

Our parking lot is small, and we have limited spaces, which are mostly reserved for our staff. Please allow yourself plenty of time to find parking and walk. You may park in the Capri parking lot—legal space permitting, along the street, or in the neighboring off-street parking where allowed. Please be thoughtful of our neighbors and do not park on grass, or block driveways or mailboxes, and be courteous to pedestrian and automobile traffic. Our children’s safety is our top priority and your help is much appreciated.

You may drop-off or pick-up your child using the “drop off/pick up” lane in the drive-thru at the front of the school. When using this lane, please make sure your child enters and exits to the right next to the curb, not into passing traffic. This will keep your child safe. If your child is not out front when you arrive for pick-up, please circle the parking lot/drive-thru/neighborhood until you see your child. Then you may enter the “loading” lane to pick them up at the curb. Please do NOT block the drop-off lane, park in red zones, or unauthorized areas, or leave your car unattended.

Thank you for helping us keep our students safe!

300 guests came to celebrate literacy expression in its many forms

The Campbell Library was a-buzz as 300 people—students, families, teachers and principals—came out for Campbell Union School District’s 40th annual Writing Faire. The event features displays of student writing and celebrates literacy expression in its many forms.

Families clustered around the library stacks to read the stories, poems and reports as their students excitedly explained their work to them. 

Adding to the excitement was a drawing for prizes donated by Assistance League Los Gatos-Saratoga, Office Depot, and others, cookies from the Friends of the Campbell Library, and a green-screen photo booth to commemorate the anniversary.

Studying California history is part of the fourth grade social science curriculum, but students often do not realize how close to home those historic facts are.

During a City of Campbell dedication event at John D. Morgan Park, students from Rosemary and Capri schools sat on what would have been the front lawn of Sabatian Peralta's adobe and heard what life was like for the family's children and parents. The event also featured traditional Mexican dancing, characters in turn-of-the-century costumes, and recreational activities for the students.

More than 1,600 people participated, providing thoughts, ideas, and questions for the district leadership.

Input from parents, staff and other community members is very important to us in Campbell Union School District. Working closely with our community is essential to ensuring that the needs of all students are met. 

In January, we added ThoughtExchange—a new, online way for our community to engage and communicate with us about our district and schools. See the results here.

The response rate for this first-time, online forum was high, with more than 1,600 people generating and rating more than 2,700 thoughts, ideas, and questions for us. Results from this and future ThoughtExchanges will inform our goals and decisions for the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), our Profile of a Graduate, and other initiatives aimed at providing an education beyond the expected.

Thank you for engaging in this new way to converse with us.
