"Free Lunch" Through U.S. Seamless Summer Program

Lunch will be free of charge at three CUSD schools this summer.

To meet the nutritional needs of children whose families may be vulnerable to hunger, Campbell Union School District will provide nutritious meals, free of charge, at three schools. As a part of the U.S. Seamless Summer Feeding Program, all children from 2 to 18 years old can come eat lunch for free. All children in the community are welcome, regardless of which school or preschool they attend.

Free lunch will be available June 24 – August 13 at:

  • Castlemont Elementary: 11:45am to 12:30pm
  • Sherman Oaks Elementary: 11:00am to 11:45am
  • Monroe Middle School: 11:15am to 12:00pm

Other school districts in the area also are providing meals. There is a mobile app that can help parents and guardians find nearby California Afterschool and Summer Meal Programs locations.  Visit the  CA Meals for Kids website for instructions.

"Hunger doesn’t stop just because school is out. Providing nutritious meals to children throughout the summer helps them return to school ready to learn. ~ Jesus Mendoza, Western Regional Administrator, USDA Food and Nutrition Service

For more information about nutrition services in Campbell Union School District, please call our Child Nutrition Services Department, at 408-341-7210, or email contact [at] campbellusd.org.

State Test Results Will Be Digital This year

Individual reports of students' CAASPP results will be available electronically.

This spring, our students in grades three through eight participated in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). In our district, the test results are just one way that we determine how well our students are doing. We use the results to find areas where students are doing well and those in which they need added support.

Depending on grade level, a student would have taken the following test(s):

  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy (ELA)
    and mathematics in grades three through eight
  • California Alternative Assessment (CAA)
  • California Science Test (CAST) in grades five and eight
  • California Spanish Assessment (CSA) in grades three through eight

This year, the California Department of Education has determined that the results from those tests will be delivered electronically. The reports will be uploaded over the next few weeks, as the individual student reports are finalized. Parents/guardians may access them through their Campbell Union School District PowerSchool Parent account. 

A sample of the student test report is available online on a new parent web page called Starting Smarter.  This site also includes:

  • resources to help understand results on the student score reports.
  • access to sample test questions and practice tests.
  • no-cost resources to support learning.
  • a guide for parent-teacher conferences.

NOTE: If you have not created your PowerSchool Parent account, please obtain the log in information from the office staff at your child’s school.
