STUDENT ILLNESS

It's the season in which we see various illnesses such as flu, strep, etc. make their way around classrooms. Please help us reduce the spread of illness by keeping your student at home if he/she is displaying symptoms of contagious illness. If your child has a temperature of 100.4 or above, he/she may not return to school until his/her temperature has been below 100.4 for a full 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications. Our custodians are working hard to keep classrooms clean and we are additionally fogging classrooms periodically to kill germs and reduce spread!

AMAZING SHAKE

We are excited that our fifth grade students will participate in our first annual Campus School Amazing Shake! This is a great opportunity to connect education, our students, and the business leaders in our community. We need volunteers from our school community of parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, etc. to help prepare our students! Please consider volunteering to help out with one or more activities here at school. Just review and share the attachment. Click here for the link to sign up!

TRUE BLUE FRIDAY CELEBRATION

We will host a school wide TRUE BLUE CELEBRATION in the gym on special, prescheduled Fridays! Your student should wear their Campus School t-shirt to showcase their SCHOOL SPIRIT every True Blue Friday Celebration day! Our next Celebration is scheduled for December 9th!

LUNCH VISITORS

We are excited to offer an opportunity for guests to eat lunch with their student. Grades K, 2, 4 may have guests Wednesday of next week (due to Tuesday's school closure) and Grades 1, 3, 5 may have guests Thursday.

  • Sign up as a lunch guest at the Sign Up Genius link below.
  • On your lunch day, sign in at the front office and proceed to the guest table downstairs at your child's lunch time.
  • Only the child of the guest in attendance may eat lunch with the guest.
  • Visitors need to bring their own lunch due to food supply shortages and the limited amount of preordered food available for serving.
  • The guest will be responsible for collecting and throwing away all trash. There will be a trash receptacle near the guest table.
