School Closure Update-Food Service 3.19.20

Dear SJUSD Families,

See update below on Nutrition Services!
Certainly we are all experiencing uncharted waters in our state and nation, but SJUSD remains steadfast in supporting our student and staff families.  A new County Public Health order was issued for all Riverside County schools to be closed through April 30, 2020.  This continues to include ALL school-sponsored and after-school activities. Some other important updates are as follows:

District Office: 
Our District Office will be closed starting Monday, March 23, through April 30, 2020. Our main phone line (951-929-7700) will provide instructions on how to leave a message on urgent matters not covered on our website.

Nutrition Services:
We are making some changes to our meal service for all children ages 18 or younger.  Beginning next week (Tuesday, March 24), service will be at three centralized locations on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 11:00am-12:30 pm.  Several meals will be distributed at the same time each of the three days as follows: Tuesday, two meals; Wednesday, four meals; Friday, four meals.  The meal service locations are Megan Cope Elementary, Estudillo Elementary and San Jacinto Elementary. Please see the updated flyer (below) with complete information about this free food service.
Optional Family Resource Packet:
An optional Family Resource Packet, which includes links to both online and printed instructional materials for all grade levels is available on our district website  There is also a form to request an optional printed packet or chromebook for students in grades kindergarten through grade 8, if internet is not available at home.  Printed packets and chromebook requests must be received by Thursday, March 19, 2020.   The last day for pickup is Friday, March 20, by 1:00 pm.   Families will be contacted when your requested resources are available.

Reminder:  Optional educational materials are completely voluntary.  Teachers should not assign, collect or grade student work during the closure.  The optional educational materials are not part of a student’s overall grade.

Up To Date Information:
We continue with our live Frequently Asked Questions.  Information may change quickly so we encourage you to regularly check our website for the most current updates.

The safety of our students, teachers and staff is our number one priority - please do all you can to protect you and your families.
