Jurupa Valley school building, built in 1935, now dedicated to decorated Navy veteran

On Wednesday, Nov. 20, the Jurupa Unified School District held a special dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony at West Riverside Elementary School. The event was in honor of the restoration of a long-neglected 1935-era building on the campus as well to dedicate the building to a distinguished alumnus of the school. The West Riverside School, originally called the Jurupa School, was established in the 1850s. It was moved to its present site at Riverview Road and Mission Boulevard in the 1860s after the first adobe building, which was located closer to the Santa Ana River, was washed away in a flood. The school’s present spot — in what’s today Jurupa Valley — may be the longest continuously used school site in California.

Anamaria Mejia Dominguez, 17, and Lalita Thavisay, 16, both juniors, are studying the vehicles’ aerodynamic designs. Warren Dayton, 18, a senior, is looking at their mechanics and fabrication, while team leader Jaden Harrod, 17, a senior, is overseeing their assignment: designing and building a small race car that they plan to take out on a race course in a few months “It’s interesting to take our knowledge of what works and what doesn’t and apply it to a physical object,” Thavisay said during a recent morning class.

They register their kids in one place, head elsewhere for a bus pass and go to another location for language testing. Parents must travel a lot to receive various services in the Jurupa Unified School District. That will soon come to an end.
