Welcome to Farnham!

  • Principal's Message

    Hello Farnham Families,

    Happy Summer! As I reflect back on this unforgettable year, I am filled with Falcon Pride as I reflect on all of the ways our Farnham community continues to rise to the challenge and use their ABCs. I saw people Acting respectfully, Behaving responsibly, and Caring for others on every learning platform both virtual and in-person. It gave me such joy to be able to end the school year with students back on our campus. I am thrilled to welcome our Falcons back to school on Thursday, August 19th. Please look out for communication regarding bell schedules and any new guidelines as we continue to navigate through the pandemic.

    Please be aware that the Farnham FLASH newsletter will be emailed to the email addresses you have provided to us.  If you would like to make any changes to your email address, please contact our office. (Patricia Lee at leep@cambriansd.com or 408-377-3321).

    Your child’s teacher is always the best place to start if you have questions regarding your child’s experience at Farnham. However, I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to our office staff who are excellent at assisting with questions as well. Patricia Lee is Farnham’s secretary. Tracy Hudson is our admin clerk. Renee Gundersen is our attendance and health clerk. I want to send a huge thank you to these three as they are fielding questions from anxious families trying to understand another new schedule.  

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.  I am looking forward to starting the 2021-22 school year with as much "normal" as possible and building on the collaboration established within our community with continued patience, resilience, empathy, and relationship building.

    Be well and stay safe,

    Amy O’Hehir

    Principal, Farnham Elementary

  • Free Breakfast and Lunch for All Students

    Cambrian School District is pleased to offer all students complimentary breakfast and lunch meals. Meals will be available for pickup in the cafeteria during scheduled meal periods. Please consider taking advantage of our FREE school meals. It extends your grocery budget, saves time planning and preparing meals, and is comforting and familiar for kids to have school meals. In addition, every meal served is reimbursed by the USDA and funds go toward Child Nutrition staff wages. Please note that you are not taking food away from someone who needs it more – we have plenty to go around!

    Please review this important update from CSD Superintendent Kristi Schwiebert regarding an independent study option for families with students whose health would be put at risk by in-person instruction, as determined by the parent or guardian. She also includes valuable information about State Assembly Bill (AB) 104, which provides options for students and parents/guardians to address learning recovery needs. Please read this summary of the law as it relates to student retention for the 2021-2022 school year. Enjoy your final three weeks of summer vacation before our exciting school year begins.
