Dear Families:


In an abundance of caution and in accordance with Los Angeles County Public Health (LACDPH) Guidelines, and due to an increase in positive cases throughout Los Angeles County during this Omicron surge, ALC is taking some added precautions at this time to treat all students and employees on campus as if they are a close contact.


Our school is ensuring that all positive cases or individuals showing symptoms at ALC are isolating at home. Families can review daily case count updates for our school online at achieve.lausd.net/covidreportcard.


Until further notice, families will not receive individual close contact notifications. Your child can continue attending school and participating in school activities including sports and before- and after-school programs as long as they do not have any symptoms. In case of possible exposure, we are asking all students and employees to take the following actions at all times to keep our community safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Mask at all times: All employees must wear surgical-type masks or higher-level PPE (e.g., KN95 or N95 respirator masks). Beginning the week of January 24th, and until further notice, students are required to wear well-fitting, non-cloth masks of multiple layers with a nose wire. Our school can provide your child with this type of mask if needed. Our school can provide your child with this type of mask if needed. Individuals must be masked at all times, including during sports and extracurricular activities, both indoors and outdoors. Eating and drinking should happen distanced from others.


  • Test weekly: All students and employees will continue to participate in weekly COVID-19 screening testing on our school’s regularly scheduled testing day with the mobile team. Students who have had a positive COVID-19 test in the past 90 days are exempt from testing. If your child does not participate in the mobile testing program on campus, or is absent during our testing day, they must take and upload an external PCR test result via Daily Pass (dailypass.lausd.net) each week. If your child tests positive, they must isolate immediately and followhome isolation protocols.



If your child is absent due to COVID-19, your child may participate in Short-Term Independent Study. Please contact your school if you would like your student to participate. Otherwise, your child will have an excused absence during this time and can make up missed schoolwork for full credit.


If you have questions or need support, please contact the school or LAUSD’s Community Engagement team at (213) 725-5637.
