Principal's Message

Good afternoon, Spartan Families, 

Parents/guardians, the scheduling team is preparing for the 2024-2025 school year. Monday, March 25, 2024, we will begin our Course Preview for next school year. Course Preview week affords parents an opportunity to request a change if you disagree with the teachers’ recommended placement (i.e. On-Level to Honors, Honors to AP, Honors to On-Level) or if you need to make a change to replace an elective (move an alternate to a primary only). We will not renumber elective selections. There is more information in the attachment below. We hope that all of our families have a safe and enjoyable Spring Break starting April 1-5. Please note that when we return on Monday, April 8, that is an Early Release Day due to the eclipse. 

Parents, please note that when coming to the office to check out your student or communicate with the front office staff, there is a new doorbell system.  A picture ID must be shown and there are signs to assist you. 

Message from the Attendance Office 

Excused vs. Unexcused Absences: Students are required to obtain a pass from their teacher and report to the school nurse if they are feeling ill during the instructional day.  The school nurse will contact the parent if it is determined the student should go home for the day. These absences are considered excused and coded AEC.  If a student calls/texts a parent for pick up and does not report to the clinic first, the absence from class(es) is unexcused. Students will not have the option to visit the clinic for the nurse to assess after the parent has arrived and have the absence excused.


On special occasions, such as Valentine’s Day, all early checkouts will require a doctor’s excuse to have the absence coded excused. We encourage all students to remain in school for the full day unless they are not feeling well. We want to limit early checkouts and maximize instructional time.

 Parents are reminded that students should not be dropped off before 7:30 AM unless it has been requested by a teacher or coach and they will remain with that adult. Students are also expected to leave the building no later than 4 PM unless they are under the supervision of a teacher or coach. 

Best regards,
Dr. Watkins

The Campbell Bands performed incredibly well at Large Group Performance Evaluation (LGPE) this past Thursday and Friday. The Spartan Band received a mixture of Superior and Excellent ratings. The combined Symphonic/Concert Band received straight Superiors. The bands represented Campbell very professionally and the comments from the judges and fellow directors/students have been very complimentary. Congratulations to all for a job well done!
