District Presents Detailed Plan for Reopening
Specifics for remote and in-person learning for elementary and middle school students
Today, Campbell Union School District released its detailed 2020-21 School Reopening Plan, with descriptions of how schools will phase in from remote learning to the traditional all on-campus model over time. It also provides sample schedules for distance and in-person learning, safety measures for students and staff, and an overview of the planning process.
“Throughout the process, our top priority is the health and well-being of our students, staff, and families as we continue our work of educating students to their highest potential,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez.

The plan calls for beginning the school year with all students in Distance Learning and gradually moving to in-person learning as conditions allow. There also is an option for families who prefer to enroll their students in Distance Learning for the entire school year.
Starting Monday afternoon, July 27th, families who wish to opt in to the full-year Distance Learning program, will receive an access code by email which they may use with the "Distance Learning" link our Enrollment web page. (Available the afternoon of July 27.) The deadline to enroll in the full-year Distance Learning option is 4 p.m. August 3rd.
Afternoon Campbell Care
While current restrictions prevent opening classrooms for daily instruction, they do allow for childcare with physical distancing. The district child care program will follow all Public Health Department requirements.
Campbell Care will be available, beginning Mon., Aug. 24th, from 2:30 p.m. until 6:00 pm, for 5 days per week. The cost is $614 per student per month. The rate will be adjusted to $399 for the “short months” of August and December, and there is a 10% discount for siblings and district staff.
The number of sites offering this program will be determined by enrollment numbers. Families who have already paid a registration deposit for childcare will receive a separate communication from the Expanded Learning Department about their priority placement.
Registration is open to all CUSD-enrolled families. Click to register.
“We owe a special thanks to the parents, employees and students who worked with us, answered our surveys and helped us define a plan even as public health guidelines frequently changed,” Viramontez said. “I’m pleased that we have created a plan that allows us to be safe, nimble and responsive to local conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
