Our hearts go out to the families and staff involved in yesterday’s tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Florida. We hope and pray that nothing like that ever happens in our schools or community.  However, if it does, we are prepared.

We take safety very seriously, and practice our emergency response plans frequently. Our training in the Incident Command System (ICS) is one way in which do our best to protect students and ourselves. Our trainings include working directly with professional fire and police officials who use ICS for emergency response and communications.

We also partner with community health services to help our students and families who need support with social-emotional and other non-instructional issues.

A tragedy such as this reminds us to hug our loved ones a little tighter and appreciate each day a little more. Be well.

— District Superintendent Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

Save March 19th for a free screening of ANGST, a documentary film with tools to talk about it and lessen our angst.

Campbell Union School District and its partners will present a special screening of “Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety.”  The event will feature a viewing of the 56-minute film, followed by an informative panel discussion led by mental health experts.

“We are seeing students and their families challenged by, and sometimes struggling with, anxiety. As educators, we want to reduce or remove barriers to our students excelling in school and in life,” said Campbell Union School District Superintendent Shelly Viramontez.​”​ Hosting this film offers a forum for talking about it, gaining positive strategies for dealing with it, and normalizing something that all of us experience at some time in our lives. ”​

The screening will be held Monday, March 19, 2018, at 6:00 p.m., in the Campbell Heritage Theater.  Appropriate for ages 10 and up.  Free tickets available at eventbrite.com!

The preschool-8th grade Campbell Union School District is hosting the screening in partnership with the county’s School Linked Services program, the Campbell Union High School District, and the independent online streaming platform IndieFlix and its IndieFlix Foundation.
