They are loosely sticking with the continuity so anything is possible.
"Semi" and "loose" don't seem strong enough words. If you think about it, this film totally rebooted the entire franchise, with the exception of Hugh Jackman's casting.

Now, Erik didn't help build Cerebro, Moira doesn't know Xavier, Xavier was crippled (and had hair) before rescuing Cyclops, Xavier and Erik never recruited Jean like in the third film, Xavier knows about Magneto's helmet before the shootout scene in the first film, etc, etc.
