Superintendent's Message

Dear JUHSD Community,


I hope you had a restful Labor Day and this month is finding you well! September signals the end of summer and the start of autumn. With the changing of the seasons, I reflect on the many changes that have taken place within our district, and community, in just our brief return to campus.


Times of transition and change create many mixed emotions. However, being able to accept change, and acknowledging the past, while planning for the future, are life skills that help us grow as individuals. In turn, those around us benefit from these skills as we maneuver through our own personal times of transition and change.


I thank you for supporting your students, and our school district, as we continue to grow in this ever changing world.


Warmly,

Toni Presta

Superintendent

Honoring September 11, 2001

This Saturday, September 11th, marks the 20th Anniversary of the attacks on our nation. Please take a moment to honor the thousands of lives lost on that day.


Though most of our students, and your children, were not born before September 11, 2001, feel free to share this brief history of the day with them by clicking on this LINK.

Second Progress Report Online

Please note:


Second quarter progress report grades will only be available to view through your ParentVUE and StudentVUE online accounts.

Attendance equals success!

Did you know that when your student regularly attends and engages at school, their chance of graduating and being more successful post high school, is much higher than students who do not? Because of this, we want to support your student safely attending every single school day. For more information on how we can work together, and promote positive school attendance with your student, please read this article on Sending the Right Message About Attendance to Teens.
