Welcome Back/Updates

Greetings NEA-Jurupa Family,


Welcome back! I hope that you all had a restful winter break and were able to unplug and unwind. Wishing you a great first day/week back!



As we begin the second half of school year, we are still in a “holding” pattern as to where the rest of the school year will lead us. We are still working under the attached MOU, which expires at the end of this school year.


Reminder re: Asynchronous Time

  • You may invite students to continue their learning in a synchronous session during the afternoon.
  • You also may use this time to support individual students or groups of students who need support.
  • You should not extend your synchronous class period for the entire class during this time.
  • You and your students both need time to complete necessary work.


A lot has happened over the last three weeks and there are still way more questions than answers. As more clear cut information comes, that will be shared with you.
