On March 30, Alameda County went into the Orange Tier of COVID-19 risk and restriction. Under state public health guidance. testing becomes voluntary for students in that tier. As such, while AUSD will continue to provide free testing - and strongly encourages that testing - it is no longer mandatory in order to participate in in-person instruction. You can find more information in this March 31 community bulletin


Starting April 7, student testing will be available Wednesdays through Sundays, 9 am to 5 pm, at Alameda High School and Ruby Bridges Elementary School.
