    Update on COVID-19
    With the recent surge in COVID cases in Solano County, we want to remind everyone of our health protocols. Our district is also updating our guidance to align with current recommendations from Public Health. Please see our Travis USD website for more COVID-19 information. https://www.travisusd.org/tusd 
    Health and Safety
    We are depending on you to screen your children for symptoms of COVID-19 every day before sending them to school. No matter how minor the symptom(s), if your child has ANY, do not send them to school. 
    Our staff will also do wellness self-checks before coming in each day. 
    People with these symptoms may possibly have COVID-19, and must stay home. If symptoms start while your child is at school, we will call you to pick your child up right away. 
    • Headache 
    • Fever or chills 
    • Cough 
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing 
    • Fatigue 
    • Muscle or body aches 
    • New loss of taste or smell 
    • Sore throat 
    • Congestion or runny nose 
    • Nausea or vomiting 
    • Diarrhea  
    Masks
    Parents: When coming on campus, even during parent pick up outside, you must be wearing a 
    face mask. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation with this! 
    All students are required to wear a mask over their mouth and nose while at school (unless eating lunch or snack outside, or running around playing). Students will wear masks when they line up to go into class. Staff are required to wear masks at all times. Gators, bandanas, or other kinds of face coverings are not acceptable. It is our commitment to keep everyone safe while also keeping our school open. When coming to the Cambridge Elementary campus, everyone is required to wear a mask.

    No Left Turn
    There is a new No Left Turn sign at the end of the parking lot driveway near the exit. In consideration of student and parent safety, it is important that each vehicle exits the parking lot by turning right during drop off and pick up times each day. This helps us in keeping the flow of traffic safe and moving in a smoother way. It will also support students with arriving to school on time so they will have optimal time to learn and with being able to leave campus safely. Thank you for helping us to ensure the safety of our Cambridge family.

    Friday 2-25: Marie Maynard Daly – She was an American biochemist and the first African-American woman in the United States to earn a Ph.D. in chemistry (awarded by Columbia University in 1947). Dr. Daly made important contributions in four areas of research: the chemistry of histones, protein synthesis, the relationships between cholesterol and hypertension, and creatine's uptake by muscle cells.

    Parking Lot Safety
    The safety of our scholars is our first priority! In consideration of the safety of our scholars, please be mindful when dropping off and picking up your children. Once our scholars are safely out of their vehicles, please be mindful of other families and don’t sit in your vehicles or leave your vehicles unattended. In addition, please, do not park in the red zones or block other vehicles from exiting or entering the parking lot. We also want to make sure our school buses have their spaces available to them once they arrive. They work diligently to make sure that our scholars arrive to school safely and on time. The goal is to have the traffic move smoothly and to ensure student safety. Thank you for your partnership and consideration of all stakeholders.

  • Cambridge School Accountability Report Card

    By February 1 of each year, every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC).The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC.
