October District Safety MessagePosted by Rob Hasty on 9/24/2021 7:00:00 AM
We have been back in school for just over 30 days. In those 30 days we have welcomed students back to campuses, hosted football, volleyball, tennis, cross country and water polo events. Our schools have also had students participate in safety drills and safety training so our students can understand the importance of their role during an emergency. Each site plans unannounced safety drills throughout the school year. These drills allow students and staff to practice their safety skills. Throughout the year we practice Evacuation, Lockdown and Shelter in place drills. Our teachers talk to each of their classes about behavior expectations and actions during an emergency event. Our drills allow us to get better each time with response to safety procedures to increase our response and effectiveness for the safety of our students and staff.
We have safety procedures for in school events and afterschool events. Our staff is trained to use our Catapult system to report their location, their individual safety as well as the safety of their students. This year our students were introduced to the “Help Us Stay Safe” link that was shared with you in the last newsletter. This is managed through our Catapult Emergency Management System, which allows our safety teams to respond in the appropriate manner to address the event reported.
This year we will be adding an additional drill in coordination with the Roseville Police Department (RPD). In April 2022, we will be conducting a drill to help us and RPD better understand the response procedures we have in place to react to an active shooter on a campus and the reunification process. This drill will also expand our understanding of the reunification process for students and families. It will allow us to have insight to the whole process as well as the parent side of the reunification process.
August 10, 2021 - Information on Mask Wearing and Exemption FormPosted by Barbara Huber on 8/10/2021
FACE COVERING EXEMPTIONS - UPDATED AUGUST 10, 2021
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Guidance for Use of Face Coverings exempts from wearing a mask at all times those individuals who: (1) have a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a mask, and/or (2) are hearing impared, or communicating with a person who is hearing impaired, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.
Assessing for exemption due to a medical condition, mental health condition, disability that prevents wearing a mask, or hearing impairment is a medical determination and therefore must be made by a physician.
Self-attestation and parental attestation for mask exemptions due to the aforementioned conditions do not constitute medical determinations.
Additionally, per CDPH K-12 Guidance, persons exempted from wearing a face covering due to an exempted condition, must wear a non-restrictive alternative, such as a face shield with a drape on the bottom edge, as long as their condition permits it.
The District has approved the process set forth below and the Student Mask Exemption Form for use regarding student face covering exemption.
1) Mask Exemption Request Form can be found HERE - RJUHSD FACE COVERING EXEMPTION REQUEST FORM
2) Obtaining a mask exemption shall be accomplished by providing a signed and verified Mask Exemption Request Form.
3) Submit the Face Covering Exemption Request Form to the school site for review by the principal and/or designee.
4) This student mask exemption process applies to all school sites and other property of the District, except Roseville Adult School.
5) This student mask exemption process shall remain in effect unless and until one of the following conditions occur: (1) masking is no longer required in K-12 school settings by the state and local public health departments, making an exemption from mask wearing unnecessary; (2) state or local laws or regulations, or public health orders require a different process in which case the Superintendent is directed to amend this process to comply with such laws, regulations, or orders.
6) The District may follow up to meet its obligations to determine whether the student has a condition that may qualify for Section 504 or be eligible for special education services under IDEA.
7) This student must quarantine as required by CDPH and/or local health department guidance for persons not wearing a mask.
Appointment of New RJUHSD SuperintendentPosted by Barbara Huber on 4/5/2021 10:00:00 AM
April 5, 2021
The Roseville Joint Union High School District (RJUHSD) Board of Trustees announced today John Becker has been named as the district’s next superintendent and will assume duties July 1, 2021 upon the retirement of Interim Superintendent Jess Borjon. The board will formally vote on this appointment at their next board meeting, April 13, 2021.
Becker has been with the district since 2007 and in education for 26 years. He currently serves as the Executive Director of Student Engagement. He is an executive committee member for the California Interscholastic Federation, which oversees all high school athletics in California. Prior to working at the district office, he was the founding principal at Antelope High School for 11 years and implemented the region’s first full offering of Project Lead the Way, leading to national recognition.
“John has built strong relationships within the RJUHSD community and it was apparent in his interview and performance with the district that one of his greatest strengths is his approach to education, which is student-centered,” said Board President Andrew Tagg. “During his time leading Antelope High School, he was known for his ability to build a culture of inclusiveness, high academic standards and support for student success.”
“I’m looking forward to leading our district in a post-COVID environment. Our focus must remain on the student, which will create better outcomes for us all,” says Becker.
