We understand the importance of providing a safe campus for all students and staff. To help us provide that safe learning environment, Campbell Union School District has partnered with professional testing experts at Grapefruit Testing to conduct no-cost COVID-19 screening tests of students and staff at our schools. 

A parent consent form was emailed directly to parents. We encourage you to complete the consent form and submit it directly to Grapefruit Testing so that your student may participate in this important on site, health screening opportunity.  This testing will also allow us to test students who may qualify for a modified quarantine.

Welcome!

I am excited to welcome you all to the 2021-2022 school year! We are energized to provide a holistic approach to learning and to provide hands-on learning experiences for our students. Our staff is eager to provide a warm, safe environment that fosters each child’s curiosity and passion!

With the current realities of the pandemic, we are prepared for another year in which we model flexibility and perseverance. The district has posted a detailed Opening Plan for 2021-2022 on the CUSD website. As mentioned in the prior announcement, we have returned to the original bell schedule. We are no longer required to have staggered start and end times. Below are a few updates on the expectations for the Fall. Please be mindful that, like last year, logistics may change due to county and district guidelines.

 

Morning Drop Off

-Parents are allowed to walk their children to their classroom.

-Parents must wear masks to enter the campus.

-Parents will remain outside of the classroom.

-All parents are kindly asked to leave the campus within 10 minutes from entering.

-Parents are still encouraged to park at Nordahl Hall and walk to campus.

 

Masks

-Students will wear masks while indoors, unless exempt.

-Masks are optional for students while outdoors (We will not require masks to be worn during morning recess and lunch).

-We recommend sending your child with an extra mask in their backpack.

 

Social Distancing

-We no longer have social distancing requirements.

-Classrooms: This means seating arrangements are determined by teachers.

-Recess: We will have common morning recess and a common lunch recess for all grade levels.

 

Snacks

-Each family will provide their own child’s snack.

-Refillable water bottles are encouraged.

 

I am sure that you have more questions, we will continue to communicate as we finalize the details. I will host an optional Zoom meeting on Tuesday, August 17 at 9:00 am for questions and answers. More details to follow. Until then, I hope you are enjoying the last days of summer to the fullest!

This year marks a special occasion as we are proud to announce Village has been serving the community for 25 years. To celeberate this special anniversary, Shannon Hughes, one of our parent leaders, created this 25 year anniversay bell.  We are excited to use it as we welcome students Monday, May 3rd, for a full day of in-person learning.

The 100th Day of school is a special occasion at many elementary schools. At Village,  the hundredth day marks a special tradition for our 2nd graders, the Bridge Challenge! Using only 100 popsicle sticks, can students engineer a bridge that supports 50 lbs? The design challenge and anticipation of watching their creation hold the weights in ten pound increments is a nail biting event for all. The entire school was invited to zoom in and watch the time honored event. This year, 3rd graders were also challenged to build a tower construction of 100 popsicle sticks to support 50 lbs.  Great job to all the students who participated in this engineering challenge! Special thanks to our 2/3 teachers, Roberta, Chris, and Elizabeth for putting this together.
