A Message from the Superintendent

With news about changes in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), we want to remind our families that Campbell Union School District is committed to welcoming and supporting all students and their families, regardless of their immigration status.

Last spring, our Governing Board adopted a Resolution Reaffirming Support of Immigrant Students and Families, which reaffirms that support and provides guidance about how to provide it within legal parameters. The full text of the resolution is available online at campbellusd.org/policy, or in print from the District Administration, 408-341-7254 or ask_us [at] campbellusd.org.

We are currently seeking parent representatives for our Site Council.  The School Site Council is an elected body of staff and parents who oversee the school goals and related budgets.  We typically meet the third Wednesday of the month at 5:00 pm for roughly an hour.  If you are interested, please contact the principal, Dawnel Sonntag, at dsonntag [at] campbellusd.org.

Updated Mon, Aug 28th

Please do not drop off or pick up your student in the middle of the street or parking lot.  It cause a very dangerous situation that can lead to accidents and injuries.  

Also, please observe traffic rules and speed limits in our neighborhood; we want all of our students, parents, staff, and neighbors to be safe.

Updated Mon, Aug 28th

This year, Monroe has separate lunches every day except Wednesday.  This means that half of the school is in class while the other half is at lunch.  Because of this, we will not be making announcements during lunchtime.  If you need to pick up your child for an appointment during his/her lunch time, please make sure that you communicate with him/her ahead of time so s/he knows to come to the office.  If you need to drop off your child's lunch, please do so during 1-3 periods or let your child know to come to the office at the beginning of lunch.

A Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez

The recent events in Charlottesville and other divisive and hate-filled exchanges remind us of the importance of creating an inclusive and caring environment for our students, families and the surrounding community.

Building positive relationships is a key value for us in Campbell Union School District. In fact, preparing our students for successful futures requires that we teach them to be inclusive and to create positive relationships despite perceived differences.

We demonstrate that value through our commitment to inclusion, our intolerance of harassment and bullying of any kind, and our efforts to maintain positive learning environments for everyone in our schools.

In this way, we create:

  • Better decisions through inclusiveness. We encourage inclusiveness in our decision-making, and benefit from the diverse perspectives of our many advisory committee members;
  • Greater tolerance and respect for each other. Our employees and students represent diverse ethnicities, languages, and cultures, which we acknowledge as we celebrate what we have in common.
  • Effective and enduring education for students. The collaboration between our special education and general education staff as they help children gain the skills they will need for success in their lives beyond school.

Celebrating and respecting our diversity is essential to our charge of developing in our young students the empathy, compassion and other skills and knowledge they will need to meet the demands of their future – to ensure they are prepared for the challenges of college and career.  It is an awesome responsibility that we take very seriously.  

“Diversity is about all of us, and about us having to figure out how to walk through this world together.”  
(Author Jacqueline Woodson)

Free summer meals for eligible children

For some children and teens, summer can mean an unwanted vacation from the regular meals they received at school. Fortunately, children in Santa Clara County, ages 18 and younger, can receive free meals during the summer at multiple locations.

Various programs are in place throughout the county to help children, who rely on free or reduced-price school meals, to receive meals when school is out.

Two Campbell Union School District schools will serve meals beginning June 26 and ending July 14.

  • Rosemary Elementary School, located at 401 W. Hamilton Ave., will serve a lunch/brunch from 12:30 to 1 p.m. M
  • Sherman Oaks Elementary, located at 1800 Fruitdale Ave., will serve brunch from 10:30 to 11 a.m.

Children in Campbell also can go to:

  • Del Mar High School will serve free meals during the summer to anyone under age 18. Breakfast is from 9:10 to 9:20 a.m. and lunch from 11:00-11:10 a.m. There will be no meals served July 3-4.
  • The Health Trust, 2105 Bascom Ave., and
  • The Jewish Family Service of Silicon Valley, 14855 Oka Road Suite 202 in Los Gatos.

There are many more locations in Santa Clara County. Families can find a meal site in their area through web searches for USDA Summer Food and the Hunger Hotline, or by phoning the National Hunger Hotline at: 1-866-3HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479) or 1-877-8HAMBRE (1-877-842-6273).
