    Weekly Message 11-19-2020


    Greetings RJUHSD Community, 

    Below are a few updates to share before we break for Thanksgiving Week:

    COVID-19 update

    Our hybrid model continues to show adaptability by teachers and students, which improves the learning process each week. There is concern moving forward regarding our ability to keep schools open with the increase in cases in our community and in our schools. Contact tracing affirms the cases in our schools are from community spread, not from school incidents. Our teachers are vigilant at enforcing safety guidelines like wearing masks, sanitizing hands, and social distancing in classrooms to the greatest extent possible. Despite the recent shift to the purple tier, we are able to remain open in our current hybrid model and that would only change if we exceeded a 5% positivity rate on campus, which would be 50 positive cases per 1,000 students at one time.  

    Our decision making

    It is important our community understands the implementation of our COVID-19 procedures and practices. We are committed to using data provided by the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the California Department of Public Health.   We also seek and receive guidance from the Placer County Health Department. 

    Our collaboration

    Our district has weekly meetings with Placer County Health Department representatives along with superintendents from every school district in Placer County. There is a concerted effort to share best practices, information and challenges to providing students the best learning experience during COVID-19. Each school district addresses their communities differently because each district has its unique characteristics and each is governed by their own Board of Education.

    Our preparation

    The RJUHSD Board of Education will decide how schools will open in January at the December 14, 2020, board meeting. The Board will consider options to mitigate exposure risks while providing students the greatest access to school as possible. The December 14 Board meeting will also include updates regarding RSVL Academy implementation. Do your part to influence their decision by keeping our district community from growing our positive case rate data by applying the safety measures mentioned below. RJUHSD staff want all our students who want to attend on campus in-person instruction, to be on campus as fully and as safely as conditions allow. 

    Your impact

    As we look to the holiday season, we anticipate more challenges with containment of the virus within our district community. The best thing you can do to keep our schools open is: 

    • practice guidelines for keeping the virus from spreading

    • stay away from large gatherings

    • when in groups, maintain social distancing

    • wear masks and wash your hands frequently

    Despite our setbacks, I remain thankful every day for our collaboration, our concern for one another and our desire to do what's in the best interest of our RJUHSD community. My wife and I always find ways to get our two sons back into town for Thanksgiving. With one son in New York and one in Colorado, this will be the first year that won’t happen. Instead, we will Zoom with an after dinner dessert!

    Have a restful and safe Thanksgiving break. 


    Jess Borjon, Interim Superintendent
