Happy Holidays to our AUSD Families

Please click on the headline to read a holiday message from Superintendent Denise Jaramillo. This message was sent earlier to all AUSD families (via a Blackboard Connect email). In case you didn't receive it, you may access it here.

Winter Break (December 21st - January 1st)

All AUSD school sites and most departments will be closed December 21st through January 1st for Winter Break. During this time, please check the district website ( or the district's social media platforms (@alhambrausd on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) for updates and information. If there are any urgent announcements, they will also be sent out through a Blackboard Connect message. We hope everyone will have a restful and enjoyable winter break. The district will re-open on Monday, January 4th.


Alhambra Unified School District is participating in a special meal program, Seamless Summer Option, during the 2020-2021 school year. Families continue to receive breakfast, lunch, and supper at NO COST. We do require that families complete the "Alternate Income Form" for additional District funding that supports our students. You only need to complete one form per family. Include all members of your house in the household count and select the household income range. (PLEASE CLICK ON THE HEADLINE TO ACCESS THE LINK TO THE FORM & INFORMATIONAL FLYER IN MULTIPLE LANGUAGES.) Help your child's teacher earn some additional classroom supply funds. All classroom teachers who have at least 90% of their families complete the form will share $5,000 in classroom supply funds! What an amazing New Year's gift that would be!


It's a Wonderful Life, the radio play, is based on the Frank Capra, classic, holiday film. It is the story of how one person comes to understand that our lives are important and have meaning...that each of us affects so many others.
It streams starting on December 18 at 7pm, through December 20 at 7pm.

Alliance and FARMS

MEALS FOR STUDENTS! F.A.R.M.S, also known as Free and Reduced Meals for Students, is a student-led organization with a mission of ensuring students are fed and well-nourished. On November 21st, we are hosting a Thanksgiving food drive with the Asian Youth Center with a projected number of 200 families. Our small organization needs the community’s help in collecting enough funding, donations, and resources to provide meals for everyone. In addition, we are raffling off meal tickets to 50 Mark Keppel families. If you are interested in helping F.A.R.M.S or receiving a free meal, check out our Instagram @AUSD_F.A.R.M.S or email us at Thank you!
