Message from Dr. Trenton Hansen

Hello JUSD Staff,

The Planning & Development department has been very busy this past summer and throughout the beginning of the 19/20 school year. Under the direction of the Director of Maintenance and Operations, the M&O team made numerous upgrades throughout JUSD. Everything from replacing and installing carpet to upgrading landscape and irrigation systems. Across the district, several portables were made vibrant again with fresh coats of paint.

The project to bring new public sewer service to Troth Street Elementary has been completed, along with the Mission Bell Modernization project. Glen Avon and West Riverside's Modernization projects are moving right along. We anticipate West Riverside's Historical Building to be completed and ready to show late November 2019. At the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony we will be dedicating the Historical Building to Rear Admiral Allen E. "Boot" Hill, United States Navy, Retired. Fun fact, Admiral "Boot" Hill was a former West Riverside Elementary student.

Upcoming is the Troth Street Elementary School Modernization, Jurupa Middle School Modernization, and Rubidoux High School Concert Hall projects which are all in the design phase.

The team was able to complete as many projects as we have this season because of the help and support of many district departments and the school sites. A special thanks to the school site personnel who have personally helped and cooperated with our maintenance and construction projects. Thank you to all JUSD staff and students for your continued support and patience with our projects.
