Student and Staff COVID-19 Testing


AUSD's Board of Education voted on September 2, 2021 to require COVID-19 testing of all unvaccinated students up to two times per month. Starting the week of September 20 AUSD also began testing all 6th graders twice weekly. This will replace the  "modified quarantine" put into place when there is a positive case in those classrooms.

Regular testing in elementary schools will take place up to two times per month during the school day, according to the schedule below.

At the same time, we will be offering voluntary testing at our secondary sites several days per week from 3 pm to 6 pm, as well as Saturdays 9 am to 5 pm.  This testing is open to all AUSD students and staff.
