End of the Year Procedures

We have not yet received the go ahead from the County or District for book and/or Chromebook returns; however, you can share the following information with students who ask.


1. All library fines that have accumulated during the school closure will be waived.

2. Current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will be returning their materials in the Fall on Schedule Pick-up Day, August 7th, 2020. This date may be subject to change!

3. Tentatively, we are planning for seniors to return their books and Chromebooks the Week of May 18th to May 22nd. Students should not come to campus until we confirm dates with them. We will be communicating with seniors and their families once we have approval from the County and District.


All other questions should be directed to me at jmccoy@rjuhsd.us.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

"While 1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness during their lifetime, everyone faces challenges in life that can impact their mental health. There are practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health and increase resiliency regardless of the situations they are dealing with" (Mental Health America, 2020).
