Dear JUHSD Community,
The recent school shooting in Michigan has surfaced fears about safety and I want to assure you that JUHSD is committed to ensuring that our campuses are safe and inclusive for everyone.
As you may be aware, there was a unfounded threat of violence at Jefferson this week and a peaceful demonstration against sexual assault/harassment at Westmoor. Staff and students acted with grace and safety and I am very proud of all.
Events like these can impact the physical and mental well-being of our students, staff, and families. I encourage you to connect with your friends and family and support each other and seek help as it is needed.
Remember that you are not alone and that support is available at school and in our community. If you or someone you know needs support, there are helpful resources through the JUHSD Wellness Page of our District's website.
Please have a restful weekend!
Finals Week Tips
*Keep up healthy habits. Eat three meals, get plenty of sleep, and include physical activity into your daily routine.
*Make time for yourself, even if it’s just 15 minutes. Read a book, take a walk, or call a friend to slow down and catch your breath.
*Be mindful of your schedule. Plan ahead and learn to say “no” to activities in which you’re feeling overwhelmed.
*Reach out for help. Acknowledge your feelings and talk to someone when needed.
Whatever you are managing, we want you to know you are not alone. We wish you well and are always here to support you. Hang in there...winter vacation is only one week away!
