Inaugural Forum for Healthy Minds
Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District (YCJUSD) is proud to join with the community to raise awareness of and support mental health issues and suicide prevention. It was a day full of great workshops and an incredible resource fair designed to promote Healthy Minds and Hope within our community.
Congratulations to Green Valley High School for Being Named a Model Continuation School by the California Department of Education!
YCJUSD employees completed the first in-district Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training on February 3rd.
Students from the YHS Law and Public Safety Academy assisted by being "victims" during the mock disaster scenario that ends the training. Thank you to district trainers Lucia Hudec and Julie Beck for coordinating the successful event.
Congratulations to Park View Middle School teacher Brittany Bay for being selected as a finalist for the CLMS Region 10 Educator of the Year. She is an educator who exemplifies educational excellence and has made significant efforts to implement elements of educational reform at Park View Middle School. Mr. Tucci, Park View Middle School principal wrote the following in Ms. Bay’s nomination letter, “There is no other team player at PVMS who exemplifies the willingness to reach out to students in a variety of ways to help them connect to their school. Her excitement for the connection with kids is unmatched at our school."
Gold Bell Award – A Night in the Trenches
Congratulations to Yucaipa High School teachers John Taylor and David Paul for earning a California School Boards Association (CSBA) Golden Bell. The CSBA Golden Bell Awards promotes excellence in education and school board governance by recognizing outstanding programs and governance practices of school boards in school districts and county offices of education throughout California.
A Night in the Trenches is a simulated experience for students in Yucaipa High School. From 5 p.m. until the sun rises the next day, two teams of students go on “missions.” Activities include fighting battles, spying on each other, plotting stratagems and binding each other’s “wounds.” A winner is determined based on points earned for the missions. They have only their uniforms and some rations (no phones!) for the whole night. Students who have experienced this event say that it’s life-changing; some decide that history will be their college major, and most show increased interest in, and therefore achievement in, their European and US History courses.

YCJUSD cooperates with approved community partners by posting eflyers online and distributing them electronically through our service provider, Peachjar. As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility, we have transitioned from paper to electronic flyer delivery.
To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.
- Visit www.peachjar.com
- Register as an Enrichment / Community Org. (account type).
- Upload your flyer for approval.
Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the District Education Center. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on these established requirements. Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.
If you as a parent are not receiving emails from Peachjar, there are two possible reasons for this:
- Your email address is not on file with your school. Let your school office know to add your email address to the district's student information system. You can also visit the FAQs page here for other instructions accessing flyers and customizing your preferences.
- The Peachjar emails are going into your spam folder or you can't see the images in the email. To prevent the e-flyers from going into your spam folder, add “email@example.com” to your email contacts. When you receive your first e-flyer, be sure to click “always display images.”
Peachjar is used exclusively for distribution of district- and school-approved flyers. Peachjar does not share or use your email address for any other purpose.

YHS Academies Achieve Linked Learning Silver Certification
23 days ago
We are thrilled to announce that ALL THREE of the YHS Linked Learning Academies- Engineering, Health and Biomedical Sciences, and Law and Public Safety- are now Linked Learning Silver Certified. Linked Learning Certification is a standard of excellence for college and career preparation. Achieving Silver Certification demonstrates that our pathways have integrated academics with sequenced technical training, feature meaningful work-based learning, and includes effective supports for students.
This academic year, our academy enrollment reached 863 students in all three academies. We are also partnering with many business and organizations including Sorenson Engineering, Adrian-Gaus Engineering, Yucaipa-Redlands Urgent Care, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, Cal Fire Station 552, and San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department to provide students with work-based learning opportunities in their chosen career fields. The pathway teams are continuing to carefully measure student progress, which will inform future improvements in our college and career pathways at YHS.
Reaching Silver Certification is a significant accomplishment for our students and staff, and we look forward to continued progress in preparing all students for college and career. Our YHS Academies are three of the five pathways certified silver in San Bernardino County and the first school to have all their pathways certified silver in the county!
