Planning the Return to School

Dear JUHSD students and families,

As I sit in my office writing this communication, the sun is shining—no fog.  And the temperature is perfect for walking.  I look forward to the reopening of our county and state parks.  I am sure you, too, are looking forward to various reopening.  As we plan for the “return to school,” our health and safety will continue to be my top priority.  Thank you for the extra care and attention you are providing to your family and friends—and please provide that same extra care to yourself.

 With gratitude,

Dr. D.

Return to School Committee  Although we do not have the “right” county order from Dr. Morrow to begin this work, I have convened a diverse committee of parents, students and staff to research and develop a “return to school” plan for the 20-21 school year.   I will talk about this in our Family and Student COVID-19 Update Webinar, mentioned previously.

The Coming Storm:  Big Budgets Cuts, Rising Costs for CA Schools  While we have no plans for lay-offs planned for the 20-21 school year related to this budget crisis, we will be affected by the loss of revenue.
