Camino Real Elementary Parents: This morning, the Sheriff’s Department placed Camino Real Elementary School on a modified lockdown. On a horse trail near the east side of Camino Real Road, an unattended suitcase was left and its contents were unknown. In an abundance of caution, the Sheriff’s Department requested the school site be placed on the modified lockdown until the Hazardous Device Team could examine the suitcase and determine the best way to dispose of it. At no time were Camino Real students or staff in danger.
Due to this situation, Camino Real Road was blocked off from Jurupa Road to Whitney Road for a few hours. The school district rerouted parents and buses who were picking up or dropping off Kindergarten students to a side dirt road. We appreciate all the parents who waited patiently to pick up or drop off their student and the Camino Real staff who assisted. Thank you for following staff and sheriff directions and making the student drop off/pick up situation work smoothly.
The school site was taken off lockdown at approximately 12:30 p.m. and the situation was deemed safe and secure by the Sheriff’s Department.

Three of our students were stationed under the shuttle with their aerodynamic wind energy project. Our students also presented projects in Environmental Engineering, Materials Science, Product Science (Biological) and Toxicology.

Jurupa Unified School District’s School Attendance Review
Board (SARB) headed by Sandra Amatriain, CWA Coordinator, has been recognized
as a Model SARB by the 2014-15 Model SARB Recognition Program sponsored by the
California Department of Education (CDE) in cooperation with the California
Association of Supervisors of Child Welfare and Attendance (CASCWA). The
program identifies and recognizes results-based school attendance improvement
programs at the district or county level that are outstanding and innovative
programs that will serve as models for other SARBs in the state. Applicants are evaluated in six content
areas. The recognition ceremony will
take place on Friday, April 24, 2015, at the State Conference of the California
Association of Supervisors or Child Welfare and Attendance (CASCWA).
The purpose of SARB is to help truant or recalcitrant
students and their parents or guardians solve school attendance and behavior
problems through the use of available school and community resources. Key questions that are addressed by the SARB
panel members are: Why is the student
absent?, What behaviors need to be addressed?, and, How can the school and/or
community help the student and the student’s family?
The Riverside County District Attorney’s office is an active
partner in JUSD’s SARB meetings. “Congratulations
to the Jurupa Unified School District on its selection as a model SARB by the
California Department of Education and the state SARB,” Riverside County
District Attorney Michael Hestrin said. “This is a significant
accomplishment and the district deserves recognition for achieving such a high
standard and for serving as a leadership model for other school districts in
Riverside County and throughout California. The DA’s Office is proud of
our partnership with the district on this excellent project. To all who
helped make this goal a reality, well done.”

Administrative Services, would like to publicly thank the following community
