Important Updates from the JUHSD Superintendent

Dear Students and Families,

Please read this entire communication as it includes important updates. Congratulations on finishing a very challenging school year. I am so proud of you – both students and families – for the incredible effort you put into making this year a success. I hope this communication finds you and your family healthy as we begin the summer.  Now, more than previous years, we all need time to rest and reflect.  I miss my children and granddaughter, friends and being in classrooms. I am hoping that the county orders will soon allow us to connect in person with those outside of our households. We have each had to adapt to a new way of life. It has not been easy, and I appreciate each of you for your support as our JUHSD staff maneuver the COVID-19 crisis, especially since on campus learning stopped abruptly on March 13. Summer has started, and we are very busy planning for a safe and healthy return to school on August 10, 2020.

Working together, we will create a safe environment where all of our students will thrive.


Dr. D.

Terry A. Deloria


New Information

I have 11 items to share:

  1. Return to School/Work Plan The committee of 50+ classified and certificated staff, parents and students are busy working within the county and state parameters on a plan for the 2020-21 school year. Please look for emails in the next few weeks requesting your feedback.

    Even with all the planning, if the number of new cases of COVID-19 does not decrease or level off enough, we may have no choice but to continue with distance learning (At Home Learning.)
  1. Student/Family Webinar On Thursday June 4, I will host a virtual webinar to update you on the county/district framework used for making return to school/work decisions.  I will answer questions to the extent that I can.  A link will be sent to you via email. In the meantime, please save the date.

All students and adults will be required to wear face coverings through most of next school year.  Plastic shields (splatter guards) will not be allowed unless used with a face covering as well.

Appointments will be prioritized based on answers to screening questions and testing site availability. There is a backlog of those wanting testing so you will likely have to log in everyday until you can get an appointment.  If you are sick, please contact your doctor.
