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.

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.

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.

District Governing Board urges lawmakers to support greater school safety through increased funding and “common sense gun reforms.”

At their March 29 meeting, the elementary school district trustees passed Resolution 2017-18-25 calling on state and federal legislators to do more to bolster funding for services that support students’ mental, physical and emotional health and protect students from gun violence. 

“Gun violence on school campuses, while relatively rare, represents a particularly egregious and unacceptable threat to the lives of students, teachers, and staff across the country,” the resolution states. 

Prompted by the February 2018 mass shooting at a Florida high school, the resolution cites data about bullying, harassment, and student access to guns, and it asserts students’ and staff’s rights to safety at school. 

The resolution also requests for adequate funding to support students social and emotional needs in addition to their academic achievement.

“Our District partners with community health services to help students and families who need support with social-emotional and other non-instructional issues,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “The costs of educating and supporting students have been rising faster than state and federal funding, making it difficult to provide services that allow our teachers to teach while students get support for their social-emotional well-being.” 

A copy of the full resolution is available on the district’s website.

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.
