The Alta Loma School District continues to monitor and review the opportunities for the potential reopening of our schools. We are cautiously planning for the potential reopening of ALSD schools and exploring the best ways for students to safely return to our campuses.
The Alta Loma School District submitted a waiver application to the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health last week for our elementary schools to reopen for in-person classes. If approved, the waiver could allow for students at our elementary schools to return to school, with restrictions.
After much thoughtful reflection and deliberation, the Alta Loma School District Board of Trustees will apply for a waiver from the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health for students to return to school campuses for in-person instruction.
When Gov. Newsom closed schools across the state in March because of the Covid-19 pandemic, teachers weren’t the only school district personnel who had to adapt quickly to a new way of doing their jobs. The ALSD child nutrition staff and a small army of volunteers continued to provide student lunches through the end of the school year and throughout the summer. With the start of the new school year, free lunches are being distributed at all 10 ALSD campuses.
Located in the foothill community of Rancho Cucamonga, California, the Alta Loma School District serves over 6,000 achieving students with 300 teachers and administrative staff and an additional 450+ support staff.
The District prides itself on its educational program, which provides each student with the opportunity for maximum intellectual, social, and physical development. Strong parent and community involvement in the schools' academic excellence of our students, professional development of staff, and the stability of leadership all provide the foundation of success for Inspiring Learners for a Lifetime!
