Dear Rose parents,


Due to a possible “stomach bug,” we ask that you keep your student home if they are feeling nauseous or have stomach cramps. If they do not vomit or have diarrhea, they may return to school the next day.


The following directives are from the Santa Clara County Health Department. If your student does experience vomiting or diarrhea at home, please keep them home and notify your student’s school attendance secretary. Any student who reports stomach illness at school will be sent home immediately. Your student must stay home 48 hours AFTER their illness has cleared. In addition, the health department encourages you to take your child to the doctor for a stool sample. Students with negative results may return to school before the 48 hours.


We urge you to disinfect any area where vomit or diarrhea comes in contact within your home with bleach-based cleaners (1 cup of chlorine bleach with 1 gallon of water).


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Health Clerk Monica Garcia, Principal Nanci Pass or, Assistant Principal Lori Nuno at (408)635-2668.


Thank you for your partnership as we support our students and their health.

The Common Core Standards

Rose School has been transitioning our curriculum to a new generation of standards - The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) which have established rigorous expectations for student work at every grade level.  

This three-minute video explains how the Common Core State Standards will help students achieve at high levels and help them learn what they need to know to get to graduation and beyond.





The Smarter Balanced Assessments are the next generation of assessments that will measure student growth toward the Common Core Standards.  All Rose students in grades 3-6 will participate the Smarter Balanced Assessments in English Language Arts and Mathematics.  Practice tests to familiarize students parents and teachers with the format of the new tests are available on-line.




These roadmaps include examples of grade-level focus in the content area, sample progressions of learning across three grade levels in the Common Core, and tips to parents on communicating with teachers about their child’s work and how to support student learning at home.
