HSC Sponsoring Teacher Appreciation Lunch

The Castlemont Home and School Club is looking for your support in observing Teacher Appreciation Week, May 8-12. We have several special treats planned over the week for the staff including a catered luncheon and Sodas & Sweets Day. If you would like to help, a form was sent home in your Monday Envelope suggesting different ways you can help. If you have questions, please contact Emily Winters at 408-410-0818 or email Emily at eloek [at]

From Mr. Brown - Mornings at Castlemont

The safety of our students is our number one concern.

Students must arrive after 8:00 am unless otherwise arranged for with a teacher. The gates open each day at 8:00 am.

This also means that students may not be left outside of the locked gates.

As noted in the Castlemont Parent Handbook: "Students are not to arrive at school before 8:00 am as there is no supervision." 

If you need child care before or after school, we have Campbell Care, a fee based program.  For contact information, contact the CUSD Extensions Program at 408-364-4200 X 6378.
