Superintendent Report

Superintendent Toni Presta shared that a Progress Pride flag, flying on Oceana High School's quad flag pole, had recently been stolen from the campus.

In a message sent to the District community this past Monday, she stated, "As a district, we take this incident very seriously and are working with our community partners to enhance and strengthen our commitment that ALL JUHSD students and their families feel safe, seen, heard, and included. Our community’s strength is in its diversity, and I want to remind everyone of our commitment to equity and justice. We will not let incidents like these diminish our resolve to celebrate diversity and our LGBTQ+ community."

A new Pride flag was raised at Oceana High School on Tuesday, July 19; see photo below. If anyone has any information about this incident, please contact the Pacifica Police Department at (650) 738-7314.

Adjourned in Remembrance

Tonight's meeting was adjourned in honor of John Brink.

John Brink, husband of longtime JUHSD Board Member Jean E. Brink, passed away peacefully on June 20, 2022, at the age of 82.

John was a member of the 101st Airborne Division and graduated from the Monterey Army Language School with a certificate in Russian language. Upon leaving the Army, John circumnavigated the globe by sea and worked many years in the computer field.

John married Jean in 1967 and went on to have two children, Laura Brink Ritenour and Adam Chapman Brink, along with grandchildren Serena Ritenour and Avery and Tyler Brink.

John and Jean celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary this past May.
