    air quality alert

    Due to the ongoing fire in Butte County, the air quality in Alameda and the surrounding area is expected to continue to be unhealthy on Tuesday, November 13. According to air quality and public health experts, it is safe for students and staff to be at school. But students will be kept inside during recess, lunch, and PE, as is recommended. We will continue to keep you updated as the week goes on.

     

    Please our "Air Quality Alerts" web page for information on how we monitor air quality and how you can protect your family. 

     

    sad news from ahs

    We are heartbroken to report the death of a student from Alameda High School. Out of respect for the family's privacy in this very difficult time, we are not currently releasing details on the student's cause of death.  Please know, however, that AHS students, staff, and family are being informed of this tragic loss, and trained staff are available to offer counseling support to any student who needs it over the coming days and weeks. As a parent/guardian or staff member, we also ask that you remember that students can sometimes experience deep emotional distress when another student dies. We ask that you stay alert for signs of emotional upset or crisis in your students and learn what to do if you think a child is at risk for self harm. You can find information about this on our Suicide Prevention Resources page.

    About AUSD

    Serving Alameda children since 1855, the Alameda Unified School District’s mission is to effectively use our limited resources to ensure that every child succeeds. We believe that our diverse community of students, given a rigorous academic program in an inclusive, safe and secure environment, will be prepared to be responsible citizens.

    The district, which serves about 9500 students, has a wide range of school offerings, including a preschool, nine elementary schools, four middle schools, two comprehensive high schools, a continuation high school, an Early College High School, and an adult school. Approximately 18% of students are English language learners, reflecting the richness of cultures represented in our island city.

    We are very proud of the high quality education our staff provides. U.S. News and World Report  has recognized Alameda and Encinal High Schools as two of the top 1500 high schools in the nation. Our schools have also received gold, blue, and green ribbon awards from both the California and U.S. Departments of Education, and our graduates go on to a wide range of colleges and universities, as well as apprenticeships and jobs.
