We are saddened and horrified to hear about the senseless violence that occurred in Connecticut Friday morning. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the tragedy. As always at Jurupa Unified School District, the safety of our students is our primary concern. Each of our schools has a School Safety Plan in place and we are in constant communication with law enforcement. Over the next several weeks, we will be analyzing the safety and emergency plans at each campus, in collaboration with law enforcement, to ensure that every precaution is taken to protect our students and staff.
We ask that you support us by participating in all school safety procedures, such as checking in at the office when visiting campus and receiving a visitor's badge, and following established drop-off and pick-up procedures. Additionally, please take a moment to ensure that the school has the correct contact information for you on file and update that information, if necessary.
All schools have been provided the attached information about talking to students about violence. Additionally, counselors are available for students and staff who may need their services.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by this tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. We pray for comfort for those who are in mourning.

On Wednesday, November 28th, the Jurupa Unified School district closed a
deal that refinanced the 2004 series bond from Measure C, passed by the voters
11 years ago. By taking advantage of exceptionally low interest rates, the
district, with the help of its financial partners, was able to take $25.2
million in bonds, with a debt service of just over $40 million over 15 years,
and reduce the debt service to under $35 million over the same time period.
In other words, district taxpayers as a whole save about
$5.5 million dollars (exactly $5,491,837) with the refinancing.
Superintendent Elliott Duchon said “We look at
our debt service on a regular basis, and when we can save our residents
something on their tax bill, we jump at the opportunity. We take our
stewardship of district and taxpayer money very seriously, and we were
delighted to achieve these savings with such low interest rates. While this
doesn’t save the district money, we are delighted to reduce our residents’ tax
bill over the next 15 years.”
