Principal's Message

Campo Families,

It is hard to believe we are almost through the month of January. This will be our final week of hybrid and then we will be returning to full in-person learning starting February 1st (unless otherwise directed). The bell schedule for this last week of January is posted below. As a campus we have seen a decline in positive COVID cases. Thank you for playing your part in keeping Campo safe. Please continue to follow our dashboard up that is updated daily Tuesday-Friday dashboard page on the district website.

As a reminder this semester teachers will be posting their official grades weekly into Infinite Campus (IC). If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out to our administration.

Thank you for your continued support of our Campo Family.

Krista Cox, Ed.D.

Senior Credit Checks

Counselors met with seniors in their English class last week to discuss credits. The purpose of this one-on-one meeting was to ensure seniors are in the appropriate classes to meet their graduation requirements, or if deficient, have a plan to make up credits. We also discussed post-secondary plans and answered any questions that students had.

ACE Plus and Hoop of Learning


EVIT has opened their online application. Due to the nature of this year, they decided it would be best to open it early. Below is a video that will walk you through the application.

Sophomores can begin applying by going to Once EVIT has all of your documents, Attendance, Discipline, Current Transcripts, and Immunizations, then your application will be reviewed and possibly accepted.

Campo's EVIT representative will be on campus twice in January to help with enrollment, but for the programs that fill up quickly (most programs offered at East Campus: Aviation, Vet Assistant, Future Engineering, East Cosmetology, East Medical Assistant, East Nursing Assistant) I would recommend you fill an online application sooner than later. To secure specific timeframes (AM or PM time slots), I would also recommend enrolling sooner.

How to apply at EVIT:

In between learning to use jigsaws and equipment in the shop and assisting in the auditorium, beginning technical theatre students made good use of their time and completed all requirements for their OSHA-10 certification. Meanwhile, intermediate technical theatre students are experimenting with materials to make the Audrey II plants in Little Shop of Horrors.

Theatre Arts students are preparing for their one-act showcase on February 25, rehearsing several plays by Don Zolidis. Performance will be at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium, seating will be limited to allow for social distancing.

Beginning theatre students will soon be rehearsing for their showcase featuring The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon.

1. Stress affects EVERYONE!

-Some may cope more effectively and recover more quickly.

-Stress may be short term or occurrences that continue over time.

-3 Types of Stress: 1). ROUTINE STRESS (every day work, school. etc. 2). TRAUMATIC STRESS (accident, disaster, death, injury, etc) 3). SUDDEN CHANGE STRESS: Stress brought on by sudden negative change (job loss, divorce, illness)

2. Not all stress is bad!

-Can motivate people to perform at their best or "rise to the occasion" (high achieving people feel stress).

-Can be "life saving" in times of danger (brain more "wired in").

3. Long term stress can harm health

-Chronic / long term stress can damage the immune system, digestion, sleep, and reproductive issues.

-Headaches, sleeplessness, sadness, anger, irritable behavior.

-If Long term stress occurs heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and mental disorders can develop.


1. Recognize the signs of stress.

2. GET HELP! Talk to a health care provider.

3. Regular EXERCISE!

4. Relaxing activities (yoga, tai chi, gentle exercises)

5. Set PRIORITIES (what must get done and what can wait).... You don't have to do everything at once!

6. Stay connected to FRIENDS and FAMILY that can provide support and help!

Congratulations to our February "Physical Education Students of the Month"
