The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently announced recommendations to relax face covering guidelines for individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19. While this news is encouraging, it’s important to remember that we are still required to comply with state and local health orders, which have not yet relaxed requirements on face covering guidance. Until that time, all educational facilities must continue to practice the use of face coverings by all individuals while on school property.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration this week authorized the Pfizer vaccine for children as young as 12. It was welcome news to families of middle schoolers who long to return to more typical activities and socializing in time for camps and summer activities. 

There is no category of teenagers who shouldn’t get the vaccine, unless they have a known allergy to one of the vaccine’s components, according to Dr. Angela Dangvu, a pediatrician in the Children’s Health Orange County Primary Care Network.

Because we recognize the desire for many of our families to have their children vaccinated, we are once again partnering with our community to make it easier and more accessible for our families. To support our families and children, Campbell Union School District is partnering with Safeway NorCal Pharmacy Operations to bring another free community vaccine clinic to our district.

Reunited and It Feels So Good

Students well-acquainted with and following COVID-19 precautions

Happy greetings, laughter, elbow bumps, and behind-the-mask smiles were the order of the day on Monday, May 3rd, as students, teachers and staff launched the 5-day in-person-learning schedule at schools this week. This is the schedule they will follow for the remainder of the school year. 

Monday was a momentous day,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “After 416 days since learning that we would be closing our school campuses, we finally are able to bring all students back to campus for a full week of in-person learning. It was not an easy undertaking, and I want to thank everyone for working with us to make it possible.”

But it was seeing the students lined up, excitedly waiting to enter the classroom and begin learning that touched parents and faculty alike.

Students were excited to physically see the students from the other cohort.  “This feels like it’s supposed to be,” said one elementary school teacher as she watched students line up to enter the classroom. “Thank you for being here for the kids,” said the parent of a kindergartner. “It’s good!” said a happy second grader as she dashed off for her turn on the slide.
