Opening Day Packet

  • The Cupertino Union School District believes that the best opportunity for student success comes from a strong partnership between home and school. As a result, the Cupertino Union School District provides the Opening Day Packet Document to all parents at the beginning of each school year.

    The Opening Day Packet Document contains a wealth of information regarding the Cupertino Union School District, including calendar and directory information, pupil/parents' rights and responsibilities, lunch information, annual notifications, and much more.

    Th Opening Day Packet is sent electronically through PermssionClick. If you have not received your child's copy, please contact the school office.

    As a parent/guardian, you have the right to request the district not to release directory information. For more information and to request to opt-out, please see the online form:

Pupil Fees, Deposits, and Other Charges

  • The California Constitution mandates that public education be provided to students free of charge, unless a charge is specifically authorized by law for a particular program or activity. This constitutional right of free access encompasses all educational activities, whether curricular or extracurricular, and regardless of whether credit is awarded for the educational activity. A process that allows for a waiver process for an otherwise mandatory fee, charge or deposit does not render it constitutionally permissible.
    The law does allow the District to request voluntary parent donations to support school-sponsored trips, activities, and afterschool sports; however, no child will be denied participation for these activities. All donations collected will go to support the total costs of the school-sponsored trip, activity and afterschool sport.
    In addition, the law allows the District to ask students to assist with fundraising for school-sponsored trips, activities, and afterschool sports. Fundraising is voluntary and no child will be denied participation due to lack of participation in the fundraising activities.
