The Importance of Good Attendance

Critical to school success

Positive school attendance is critical to a child’s success in school. One missed school day equals six hours of missed classroom instruction. Every day counts.  A good routine begins at home with a consistent schedule for waking up and going to bed. Students should have their backpack and materials ready the night before for in preparation for a successful day.

We recommend parents to review their child’s attendance every two weeks. You can view your child’s attendance on PowerSchool Parent Portal or you may request an attendance print-out from our school attendance assistant, Christy Naderi at cnaderi [at] campbellusd.org. If you have not set-up your Powerschool parent account to view your child’s attendance and grades, please contact Monroe registrar, Erin Rupp at erupp [at] campbellusd.org.

Below are a few key reminders about attendance:

·        First period begins every day at 8:00am.

·        Attendance is taken in every class period, 1st-6th, each day.  *When students are absent 18 class periods, a truancy letter will be generated.

·        Students who arrive after 8:30am are considered truant. * 3 truant incidents will generate a truancy letter.

·        If your child misses school, please call the 24 hour attendance line (408) 341-7022 or email cnaderi [at] campbellusd.org to verify your child’s absence. Every absence must be verified.

·        Absences must be verified within 20 school days.

·        Parent are encouraged to schedule medical appointments after 2:34 pm. If your child arrives to school late or leaves early for an appointment, parents must verify the late arrival and/or early departure.

·        For a list of excusable absences, please review our attendance policies located in our 2019-2020 parent handbook. The link is below:

Red Ribbon Week

Poster and video winners announced

The Red Ribbon campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program. Every year, during October 23rd-31st, schools across the nation recognize Red Ribbon week through various awareness activities that educate students about the dangers involving drug use. This year we held daily morning trivia contests regarding vaping and drug use in addition to lunch time activities where we handed out resources on the impact of vaping and marijuana use to students. In addition, we held a poster and video contest in which students collaborated on projects to share the why and the importance of being drug free. Staff voted on each selection. There was  a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner in each category.

Congratulations to the winners and to all those who participated to bring awareness on this important topic!

We've extended the deadline to participate in your school's Thoughtexchange and add your voice to our planning process.

We believe that working closely with our community is essential to meeting the needs of our students. As part of our annual planning, we want to understand what is important to you for your school and the District. One way we do that is through Thoughtexchange—an online tool that allows us to learn the thoughts and priorities of the people affected by our decisions.

Share your Thoughts by November 22! 
Please join in the Parent/Community conversation about your child's school and district.
Por favor únase a la conversación de los padres/la comunidad sobre la escuela y el distrito de su hijo.

It is an easy 3-step process:
  1.  Share – answer open-ended questions about education in our schools
  2.  Star – review and ideas from other stakeholders
  3.  Discover – learn what is important to the community as a whole

We are committed to making sure our students are educated to their highest potential, and we rely on your feedback and input to help guide that direction. That is why we are asking for your participation in an online community conversation about what we're doing well and areas in which we can improve.

Sincerely,
Dr. Shelly Viramontez, Superintendent

Map of New Trustee Areas Are Being Developed

District Board Invites Public Input

general district boundary map

The Campbell Union School District’s Governing Board is currently elected under an “at-large” election system, where trustees are elected by voters of the entire District. On September 19, 2019, the Board adopted Resolution #2019-20-10, declaring its intent to transition from at-large to by-trustee area Board elections, where each Board member must reside within the designated trustee area boundary, and is elected only by the voters in that trustee area.

The demographer presented the proposed maps at the Board's October 24th meeting and public hearing. (See the maps)

The Board held several public hearings on the topics, and plans to vote on a final map at a Special Board Meeting, at 7 p.m., Thurs., November 21, 2019, at 155 N. Third Street, Campbell.* 

Pursuant to Elections Code section 10010, subdivision (a)(2), the proposed trustee area maps are posted on Campbell Union School District’s CVRA website and also available to view at the District Office.

*Please note: Trustee area maps do NOT alter school attendance area boundaries.
