Healthy Traffic Light (HTL)

  • Goal:  To determine behaviors for each level of risk, including parent guidelines and responsibilities, campus visitors, health, and front office guidelines, etc.

    Current Work:  

    • Drafting a detailed plan of expected behaviors for different aspects of the school day depending on the color of the day as determined by criteria adopted by the Alhambra school district in accordance with CDC guidelines and state guidance.
    • Behaviors on green, yellow, red 1, and red 2 days in locations such as: classroom, cafeteria, playground, buses, hallways, front offices, and campus arrivals etc. are being developed.
