Plan Ahead for 2020

Academic calendar approved for 2020-21 school year

calendar page of August 2020

Our families are busy—and organized! To help them plan ahead, we publish our school year calendar online and make it available in PDF and print formats. The calendar shows important dates, such as holiday breaks and shortened school days, so families can make plans that won't interfere with their child's school attendance.

NOTE: Kindergarten and middle school orientations happen a few days before school begins. As soon as we have those dates, we will post them online.

Health Update: Coronavirus Precautions

Health Department advises common sense precautions. Special guidelines for specific cases.

The CDC and state and local public health departments are closely monitoring new developments regarding the Novel Coronavirus outbreak. A woman in the San Franscico Bay Area who became ill after returning from a trip to China has become the ninth person in the U.S. to test positive for the Coronavirus, bringing the national total to 11, as of February 3, 2020.

Dr. Sara Cody, Health Officer, Santa Clara County Public Health Department (SCCPHD), reiterated the importance of common-sense precautions to prevent the spread of all infectious diseases:

  1. If you’re sick, stay home.
  2. Wash your hands and don’t touch your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  3. Recommends to get your Flu shot.

Dr. Cody also summarized the Federal Guidelines as follows:

  1. Any staff or student who has been in the Hubei province within the last 14 days should not attend school. They should be at home, in a separate room, with separate bath, until 14 days after last exposure to Hubei. They should monitor for symptoms and report any symptoms to Public Health. They should not seek medical care without calling ahead first and letting care providers know of their exposure history.
  2. Any staff or student who has been in China, in a province other than Hubei province, within the last 14 days should also not attend school. This would be voluntary quarantine, with symptom watch.

A letter with more details about the coronavirus guidelines is being emailed to Campbell Union School District families and is also available online.

Simple Precautions Can Help Against Viruses

Currently, risk is low to county residents. Universal precautions recommended to limit spread.

When new viruses surface, it is important to stay informed. Reports about the new coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, have heightened awarenss about ways to avoid infection. Campbell Union School District and public health officials are closely monitoring developments.

Fortunately, many of the good health habits we use to prevent the spread of other communicable illnesses—flu, common cold, stomach virus—can also reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

To date, there are no confirmed cases in California, and there is low risk to Santa Clara County residents, unless they recently traveled to Wuhan or were in close contact with someone who was ill who recently traveled in that area. 

Recommended Precautions

As we do during every cold and flu season, we encourage everyone to take these common-sense precautions:

  • Promote hand hygiene among students and staff through education, scheduled time for handwashing, and availability of soap and water or hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your face, particularly your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Teach and encourage proper cough etiquette—cough or sneeze into a tissue, sleeve, or arm (do not use hands).
  • Perform routine surface cleaning. (Our custodial staff cleans surfaces routinely.)
  • Encourage students and staff to stay home when they are sick.
  • Those who have a fever at school should go home and stay home until at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine.

In the unusual event that a child or staff member is identified who recently traveled from Wuhan, China and has symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath, he or she would be sent home and the school would contact the Public Health Department for additional guidance. The Public Health Department is monitoring the situation. They will advise us of any additional recommendations, which we will pass along to you.
