Aztec Families: Today, for approximately 15 minutes, we went into lockdown due to an unattended suitcase that was discovered in our quad. With the assistance of Alhambra Police, we were able to quickly determine the suitcase was harmless and lifted the lockdown and classes resumed. Student safety is of the utmost concern and we are happy to report that all of our students were safe throughout today’s situation. Thank you.
Please see the attached document for upcoming changes in our Drop off and Pick-up procedures and protocols.
Today, during lunch time, a pursuit ended on the 10 freeway that ended with the suspect abandoning his car, jumping the fence adjacent to the freeway and then jumping the north fence onto Aztec Circle. At this point, we called for a lockdown. The suspect ran down toward the campus and was apprehended by 2 employees. Very shortly thereafter, police arrived to assist in taking the suspect into custody
I want to thank the quick actions of all of our employees to get our students indoors and to safety. Normal school activities have resumed. Thank you.
As a reminder, Halloween costumes worn at school still need to comply with school dress code. If found to be in violation, students will be required to change into clothes provided by the school. If you plan to wear a costume to school on Halloween, please make sure it complies with school dress code.
