Return-to-School Update

Distance Learning Begins August 10

Return-to-School Webinar

Superintendent Deloria provided an update on return-to-school plans for the 2020-2021 school year. The recording is available at this link.

School Starts August 10 in Distance Learning

The JUHSD Board of Education determined that school should be conducted in 100% Distance Learning for the Fall semester to protect students, staff, and their families from the COVID-19 virus. They approved an updated Return-to-School Plan built by the Return-to-School committee. This committee includes more than fifty teachers, principals, students, parents, and district administrators.


Please email registration@juhsd.net for general enrollment questions and support.

What to Expect

Students will not be directly reporting to their scheduled classes on August 10-14. Instead, activities will be assigned to students via Google Classroom. Participation is mandatory. Attendance will be recorded and reported. To access Google Classroom, students will need to sign in using their district issued Google login information (jeffersonunion.net).

1. Parents will receive an email with the student’s Google login information starting August 4.

2. The email will include instructions on how to access Google Classroom.

3. Students will be expected to log in everyday and complete the assigned activities.


Detailed information on how and when to access student schedules will be sent by your student’s assigned school. Students will report to their scheduled classes on August 17.
