Message from Dr. Trenton Hansen

Hello JUSD Staff,


The Planning & Development department has been very busy this winter season. Under the direction of the Director of Maintenance and Operations, the M&O team made numerous upgrades throughout JUSD. Everything from carpet installation to upgrading landscape and irrigation systems. Across the district, parking lots were newly painted, sealed and striped. Roofing repairs were made, and sandbags were prepped and placed in time for the rainy season. In preparation for the WASC inspection at Jurupa Valley High School, the M&O department has been working diligently to complete miscellaneous painting projects. They have supported two of our newest Measure EE projects by remodeling and relocating various rooms for staff at Glen Avon Elementary and set up temporary fencing and a playground at West Riverside Elementary.


With the completion of the Ina Arbuckle Modernization and Rubidoux High School Encapsulation Projects and Mission Bell Elementary Modernization soon to follow, we were able to begin a few new projects these past few months, including bringing new public sewer service to Troth Street Elementary, the only school in the district that was on a septic system. We also completed a modification to the Parent Center building that created a new flexible meeting and childcare space, to further enhance our service to the staff and community of parents and students who attend events there.


We also began working on path of travel upgrades at Jurupa Valley High School, improving ADA accessibility on the campus. More excitingly, we began construction at West Riverside Elementary school, commencing the modernization at that site and Glen Avon Elementary is on track to begin construction early this Spring.


We were able to complete as many projects as we have this season with 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 with our projects.


Sincerely,


Dr. Hansen and staff

Updates on Current Measure EE Construction Projects

Glen Avon Elementary Modernization

Project in Bidding Phase

District staff solicited bids for the Glen Avon Elementary Modernization Project. Bids are in process of review at this time and it is tentatively scheduled to recommend contracts to award at the February 19, 2019 Board meeting. If contracts are awarded at that time, construction is estimated to begin in early Spring 2019 and estimated duration for the project is through early 2021.

Ina Arbuckle Elementary Modernization

Big picture

It is with great pleasure that we announce the Ina Arbuckle Modernization project is substantially complete. The Library/Media Center new construction and furniture installation was recently completed, new landscaping at the front of the school was installed and the play field inside of the school's track is being hydroseeded. Irrigation in between the classroom wings was installed and a bid to install new planting in those areas will be advertised for installation after the wet Winter months are behind us.

Mission Bell Elementary Modernization

The construction at the new Library & Media Center Building is ongoing with an estimated grand opening date of March 2019. The building opening has been delayed, due to unforeseen conditions within the existing building infrastructure that warranted minor adjustments to the building plans to modernize the space. The interior issues have been addressed and now it is full steam ahead to finish and open up the new space for the students.

Troth Street Sewer Project (New Project)

Big picture
Work to connect off-site sewer in the Sky Country area over to Troth Street Elementary School began in late October and it is estimated that work will be complete in March 2019. A few very wet weeks have slightly delayed progress but we look forward to bringing the school site onto the public sewer system and saying goodbye to the current septic system, very soon.

West Riverside ES EE Modernization (New Project)

Big picture
This modernization and addition project started in late October 2018. Completion of work is estimated for December 2020. The scope of work for this project includes demolition of several vacant and old existing structures on the occupied campus, construction of three new one-story buildings: new administration building, new library & classroom building, and new kindergarten building; as well as modernization of the old historical building and existing office and library building. The new construction of ten classrooms will allow removal of ten existing portable classrooms on site. The site will also receive a new hardscape playground area for kindergarten wing and upper grades and a field facelift.

Jurupa Valley High School Path of Travel Upgrades (NEW)

Big picture
As part of the State Architect requirement to certify the recent Innovation Center project, the District was required to update pathways from the east and west parking lot to the campus to comply with updated ADA requirements. Work to update the pathways and gates and accessible parking spots at those areas began during Winter Recess and are wrapping up now.

Rubidoux High School Modernization

Big picture

The campus buildings were encapsulated and the 1000 and 1200 wing modernizations are substantially complete. The office also received new blinds, tinting, flooring, and furniture during Winter Recess. The CTE Video Production Program received the final pieces of updated equipment that will boost opportunities for the program's success, thanks to the architect's state-of-the-art design of the new video production studio spaces.

Upcoming Measure EE Construction Projects

Jurupa Middle School Modernization - Project in Schematic Design Phase


District planning staff are working with the site and project architect to complete plans to modernize the campus. Plans in development include potential new construction of a new administration/classroom building, due to anticipated residential growth, as well as modernization of the existing classroom wings.

Other Construction Projects

Parent Center - Child Care Project

Big picture

The scope of work for this project includes modifying the existing south training room to provide a separate enclosed room that can double as an additional meeting, training or childcare space. Two new single-use restrooms were also constructed within the existing space. Work started during Thanksgiving Recess and is finishing this week.

Del Sol Academy Photo Session

After various requests from local school districts to tour Del Sol Academy, the project architect scheduled a photo session with Lawrence Anderson Photography to capture the use of their newly designed 2-story K-8 STEAM Academy. The photographer captured campus life while highlighting the surrounding imagery about science, progress, and inspiration. Del Sol Academy is quickly becoming a template for other educational institutions thanks to great care towards each detail put forth by the entire project team.
