    Pat Schmitz

    Our fifth grade teacher, Pat Schmitz, is taking a year's medical leave for intensive medical treatment.  As a community we are saddened by her absence and supportive of her needs to take care of her own health.  Many in our community have an interest in providing support to Pat and her family during this time.  Susan Bonino Solis is coordinating food and other support for Pat and her family.  If you wish to help, please email Susan at or call her at 510-748-4003





    The Alameda Unified School District has revised the attendance policy.  This policy is effective immediately.  For more information, please visit the AUSD Attendance Policy

    Attendance Procedures

    Please make sure that you review the District Attendance Policy:

    • It is the parent's responsibility to notify the attendance office if your child is going to be out of school. 
    • If a student is absent for any part of the school day due to a medical appointment, a doctor's note must be provided upon return to school. If a note is not provided, the absence will be considered unexcused.
    • Students who miss 30 minutes or more of instructional time throughout the day without a valid excuse will be marked unexcused.
    • Unexcused absences count towards truancy.


    If you are new to Alameda Unified School District and would like to enroll you child please go to AUSD Student Enrollment 


    Please note that the price for school lunch in the elementary schools has increased from $2.70 to $3.00.  To purchase lunch credits for your student/s, click on AUSD Lunch Program under the Quick Links.
