• Email sent to CUSD Families on March 1, 2019:

    Dear Parents,
     
    At all schools across the Cupertino Union School District, we are having a higher than usual number of students out ill with diagnosed and undiagnosed flu symptoms. 
     
    Common symptoms of flu include:
    Fever
    Cough
    Sore throat
    Runny or stuffy nose
    Headache
    Muscle or body aches
    Fatigue (feeling tired)
     
    Based on the number of cases, we are currently working with the Santa Clara Health Department to monitor.  The Santa Clara Health Department has asked us to share the following guidelines with all families to help keep students and staff healthy and safe during this season. 
    • If your child does catch the flu, make sure he/she stays home and rests. Stay home for at least 24-hours after being free of fever (100° F [37.8°]) without having used fever-reducing medications like Tylenol or Advil. By staying home, we can also prevent others from catching the flu.
      • The Health Department requires students to remain home for 48-hours if they have multiple symptoms such as fever and gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g., vomiting, diarrhea, or nausea)
    •  Students, staff, and volunteers will be encouraged to:
    • Cover their nose and mouth with a tissue or your elbow when coughing or sneezing
    • Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth
    • Wash their hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
    • Site custodians will continue routine cleaning and disinfecting. They will be asked to pay particular attention to high touch surfaces such as doorknobs, handrails, and desks. 
    Exposure to the flu can be serious and extremely dangerous for anyone in a high-risk category.  Please be sensitive to this by keeping your children home when they are ill. We have students at all schools who are medically fragile, and exposure to the flu can be harmful. 
     
    For more information on the flu visit the Santa Clara County Health Department website. Thank you for your support in keeping our students and staff healthy!

    Solution: CUSD25: We’re In It Together!

    Challenge: CUSD has above average schools and below average funding.

    CUSD schools rank among the highest in the world. CUSD students attend prestigious universities, work at Silicon Valley’s elite technology companies, and change the world every day. And yet, CUSD receives below average funding per student -- approximately $5,000 less per student than the national average. Superintendent Dr. Craig Baker presented at Cupertino Middle School on March 6th to explain this funding phenomenon. The data can be found here.

    Solution: CUSD25: We’re In It Together!

    The solution is a unified, district-wide funding initiative, lead by Cupertino Educational Endowment Foundation (CEEF), to continue to provide extraordinary teachers and staff, as well as teaching supplies, to benefit ALL 25 SCHOOLS and create an equitable educational experience for all CUSD students.

    We invite you to invest $25 per month per student to support CUSD25. Please sign up at cusd25.org, or complete and return the CUSD25 donation form your child brought home. Our goal is to have all families contribute to support our excellent schools. Let’s show everyone what we can do when We’re In It Together! Our children deserve it!

    All of us at CUSD and CEEF want to thank you in advance for your contribution!

School Announcements

  • Homework Center:

    CMS offers a Homework Center Monday through Thursday from 3:00 - 4:00 in the school library starting August 27. The Homework Center is supervised by a teacher, and students will have access to technology and the necessary resources to complete assignments. The Homework Center is offered on a drop-in basis; no registration is necessary. Arrangements should be made so that students are picked up or walk directly home no later than 4:00 as there is no campus supervision after that time.
