Forest Hill Elementary School

A Message from the Principal and Assistant Principal

A message to the community.

Dear Forest Hill Community,

 We want to start by extending our heartfelt condolences to the Castlemont community and to the family that is suffering from an unfortunate loss. We share your interest in improving traffic safety for our students, and invite you to read the open letter sent by Campbell Union to San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo with several requests for increasing traffic safety near schools. 

 In the spirit of improved safety, we highly encourage everyone to continue to follow all traffic laws as well as the pick-up and drop off procedures we have shared with you over the last few weeks. 

Additionally, Campbell’s and other local police departments are seeking to hire crossing guards.

On another matter, I wanted to thank our parent community for the patience you have given in regard to enrolling as a volunteer for our school. We continue to partner with our Human Resources Department to ensure we have an accurate list. We have learned that a routing error prevented some applications from coming directly to Ms. Chalfant. Please reach out to the school office staff if you submitted a volunteer packet and have not yet received an approval communication. When you apply, please be sure to upload a copy of your vaccination card, TB test results and a Driver’s license (or ID card) with the application. There are spots at both the top and bottom of the application where you can click to add attachments. 

 As we move into fall on September 22nd, we have some wonderful community events coming up which are listed on our school calendar. We hope to see you at our PTA Picnic, SJSU x Campbell USD football game, our next Dining Night Out, our Parent Coffee, a TBA parent education night, and/or our PTA meeting!


Ms. Chalfant, Principal

Mrs. Armann, Assistant Principal
