Greetings NEA-Jurupa,


I hope you had a restful weekend! Thank you for your continued compassion, empathy, grace, kindness, patience, and understanding as we’ve been dealing with the Omicron surge. It sure has been a roller coaster for staff, students, and families…


Attached you will the find Tentative Agenda for our Rep Council meeting on Wednesday, January 26th. As per usual, please reach out to your Site Reps, Exec Board Members, or me with any questions or concerns you may have. We have our monthly standing meeting with the District before Rep Council and we get many of the concerns addressed there.


By now you should have received an email from your Site Admin regarding Virtual Meetings. The NEA-Jurupa Executive Board took official action to request this for our members. We are very glad that the District agreed. We are in regular communication with the District as issues arise. Also, the COVID guidance is changing rapidly. As the Federal Guidance changes, the State and County Guidance will also adjust. This directly impacts the requirements for school districts.
