    Dear Alhambra Community,

    First, let me thank you for your continued support and understanding as we respond to the challenges and uncertainties that have become our new reality in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. As parents and students prepare for the start of a new school year, and teachers and staff work to welcome them back, uncertainties and questions remain. However, I can assure you that we are preparing for a school year where we will continue to educate and provide meals to our students, while working tirelessly to protect the health and well-being of everyone involved in the education of Alhambra’s children.

    The Alhambra Plan for the Reopening of Schools will be a resource that will answer many of your questions and address the concerns we all share as we begin a new school year. Even as the virus continues to circulate, the Alhambra School District is committed to educating our students in the safest way possible guided by both medical and educational experts.

    The individual and collective voices of parents and employees have been heard through surveys, emails, phone calls and in meetings with hundreds of concerned parents and community members. Thank you for your feedback! It has been greatly appreciated and we have listened. The information in the attached Alhambra Plan for the Reopening of Schools is based upon feedback and guidance meant to protect the well-being of our students and employees.

    We will continue to monitor the situation, and as things change we will make the necessary changes to ensure we are responding in the best way possible. This plan is a living document, it will change as the situation evolves, and it will provide us a path forward that ensures we educate our students in the safest way possible. The Alhambra Plan for the Reopening of Schools was created with information provided by expects in the fields of public health and public education.

    Finally, while many of the practices and procedures we have in place are for the safety and well-being of the entire Alhambra community, they are also put into place because we care deeply about the health of each and every person involved. United in the education of our students, together we can overcome the challenges facing all of us.

    Adelante, Alhambra!

    Mark A. Yslas
